“The pandemic made many educational institutions invest massively in Unified Communications platforms like Webex Teams,” said Yoav Crombie, Co-Founder and CEO at AGAT Software. “Webex Teams offers many degrees of freedom for collaboration and communication, and that can be very useful sometimes; however, there are many scenarios where compliance, security and institutional rules require more controls.
As an example, there is a need for a rule blocking a 12th grade student from talking with a 5th grade student.”

The list of features explained for Webex Teams Advanced Controls for Education:
- Block students from communicating between grades
For example, a 7th grade student communicating with a 4th grade student.
- Make sure a teacher is present in every communication
Prevent student-only Spaces. Keep the organization protocols and safety.
- Automatically assign moderator role for the Teachers
Just as in the classroom. Avoid uncomfortable situations with students can remove a teacher.
- Control who can create Spaces
Allow only selected certain ActiveDirectory group members of the School faculty to create Spaces. Avoid undesired Spaces
- Block students from communicating with external users. Even block external users from adding a student to their Space
Restrict all communications outside of the school domain.
- Control who can add participants to a space
Allow only teachers to add users to a space.
- Lock down a Space that doesn’t have a teacher
No further communication will be allowed into existing spaces that are not aligned with new policies without losing the content.
- Automatically add global moderator to every space
Handle situations in which a space is left without a teacher or when a teacher has left the space. This will allow to add a replacement teacher.
- Restrict troublemakers to communicate only with teachers.
Avoid risks of student-to-student communications with those of bad behaviour. Instead of removing them from Webex completely.
- Detect abusive language or use of sexual language
Inspect content using profanity filters.
