Our President wants to send a file to all fac/staff that will prevent them from downloading, printing, saving the file.
In otherwords, a true read-only.
What have you used for this?

I'm wondering if any of your institutions monitor logon/logoff time for attendance/holiday/sick leave violations. I'm
not looking for a technical answer, just whether or not your schools do this.
I'm trying to bring some support documents to the table so we can make an educated decision on if it's something we
want to pursue. My feeling is that this is VERY unusual for HigherED, but links to policies or an email (with a yes/no)
would be much appreciated.
If you like I can compile my responses (anonymously) and repost to the list if there's any interest.
This is just a followup to my original mail. All replies, save one, were posted to the list. They were unanimously
"no". Since there aren't any "best practices" or obvious evidence of other schools doing this, the internal auditor has
thankfully withdrawn his request.
To followup on the technical portion. If we were forced into doing this, I was going to suggest something like
<http://www.authenware.com/> as one piece of the puzzle. That plus some network analysis and mobile device tracking
would hopefully give us at least an understanding if they even came on campus.
