How can my students turn off the countdown timers?

Students are able to turn off the countdown timers that display when they are learning in the student zone. This can be helpful for students who need more time to get to the right answer, or find the clock stressful.

If your screen is big enough the sidebar may already be visible without clicking the arrow on the sidebar.

Your students can disable their timers by clicking on their name in the top right-hand corner of the screen and then selecting Account from the drop-down menu.
