Chromebooks are managed through the Google Admin console remotely. Schools and IT administrators can deploy and manage thousands of devices remotely through Chromebook. It doesn't require any manual installation of software or login to a device to apply settings. Admins can simply flip a switch online and every device updates its applications and settings automatically.
Admin can turn school-based Chromebooks into take-home devices for students to continue learning in times of need. For example:
- Admins can restrict device access to managed student accounts and set “Off Hours” after that students can sign in with their personal accounts
- Admins can use URL blacklists to set content restrictions and ensure that students are held to the same responsibility to use policies off campus as they are inside their classrooms
- Admins can enable and share the applications for note-taking, podcasting, video editing, book publishing, drawing, screencasting, and other school work providing digital tools and resources to fill in for classroom supplies they might not have at home
Using Chromebooks Offline from Home:
Students who don’t have WiFi access, they can still access their Google Drive, edit and save files offline. They can take photos, record videos, and screencasts on Chromebooks offline.
Sharing Information about Chromebooks with Families:
Parents and guardians might not be familiar with Chromebooks and how it differs from other computers.
Admins can send an email to parents to explain to them how these devices work and how to assist students at home with the Guardian's Guide to Chromebooks. Admin can share information with families about how to manage their child’s Chromebooks, including activity controls and which sites to allow access. Schools can also share their distance learning plans with families so they might know how to support the transition.
