Installing extensions to Chrome adds amazing functionality to the browser. This allows users to personalise Chrome to suit their needs.
The Chrome Web Store has thousands of extensions to customise the browser. To help students become familiar with extensions I ‘Force Install’ a small selection via their Organisational Unit in the Admin Console. This results in students logging into their account and automatically having access to these selected extensions.
Students have full access to the Chrome Web Store to add more extensions as they need. There is a setting in the Admin Console to Allow or Block Apps and Extensions. I choose to allow students access to all Apps and Extensions, using this as a teachable moment and educate them to only install extensions that will enhance their learning.
Below is the list of extensions all students have access to when they first sign into Chrome.
