Enrolling Chrome OS Devices in ClassHub

Chromebook User Enrollment 

The process of linking student user profiles to ClassHub is called enrollment. Once a user is enrolled in ClassHubthey do not need to be re-enrolled unless they are unenrolled manually or through G Suite, or deleted in the ClassHub Settings portal.  

Chrome Enrollment 

Chrome devices (ChromebooksChromebits and Chromeboxescan be enrolled in two ways, both of which accomplish the task of enrolling the user and installing the ClassHub Student Companion Extension and App to their profile 

Note: Teachers may prefer option two (especially for BYOD environments) as it can easily be done in the classroomHowever, option two allows the app and extension to be manually removed by the student. Once these are removed, the devices will no longer be under control of ClassHub. For this reason, we recommend option one for installs when possible as this will prevent the student from un-enrolling the device. 

Option one: G Suite Admin Portal
