The Dashboard Spy

A Classroom Computer Lab Dashboard – where the teacher monitors and controls student computers

Filed under: Dashboard Screenshots — dashboardspy @ 8:45 pm

It's always fun to look at a dashboard in another language and guess at what the different parts are for. It forces one to consider the layout aspects without being hung up on the language. Here is a dashboard screenshot that is in German. It's for a classroom situation where a teacher needs to see through her machine what all the other screens in the room show. The teacher can also control each PC from her dashboard. Our German Dashboard Spies can translate this product from for us.

Homework: Use of computers in the classroom is still largely getting off the ground in many school districts. We owe it to our children to make education decisions regarding the right technologies. Learn more with these books on classroom technology.

So what or who is The Dashboard Spy? As his about page states, The Dashboard Spy is just a guy interested in the design of enterprise dashboards. He could not find any executive dashboard design source books (or even screenshots of real business dashboards) and so set about creating his own. Finally convinced to post his extensive collection of dashboard screenshots online, he was amazed to find how popular it has become. If you have a nice screenshot of a digital dashboard, balanced scorecard, or any business intelligence graphic to share, please send an email to info _at_ Also check out The Dashboard Spy's favorite books.


  1. Hello Dashboard Spy. I enjoy your blog about information dashboards. It is good to see such information. I have been studying this topic for many months now and am glad to see so many examples. I will visit your site often.

    I was very interested in seeing your post about “KPI Requirements for Dashboard Projects – Using the KPI enterprise dashboards”. Thank you for the information about this dashboard topic. There is a dashboard project at work about this subject.

    The enterprise dashboards graphic is very nice. I like the colors and the questions are very interesting – What Question? Who’s Asking, Why is it Important, etc. I think it is very good. I also like the layout of the screen. I have a question about the boxes on the right side. Is the user supposed to type the answers to the questions into the boxes?
