What is a Google Chrome Education License?

When evaluating Chromebooks it is important not only to get the right device for your school, but also supplement it with the right accessories. The Chrome Education Upgrade license empowers IT to create educational environments for teachers
and learners to thrive in, with enhanced management, security, and support capabilities.

Chromebook OS Education Upgrade

The Google Chrome Education Upgrade License is a special license offered by Google to educational institutions that allows them to upgrade their existing Chrome devices to the latest version of Chrome OS, the operating system that powers Chromebooks. This also gives schools the ability to save a significant amount of money, as they do not have to replace their existing devices to stay with the latest licensing technology.
Another benefit of the Chrome Education Upgrade License is that it allows schools and universities to easily manage and maintain their devices. The license includes access to the Chrome Device Management Console, which allows IT administrators to manage and update devices remotely, as well as monitor device usage and troubleshoot issues. This can help to reduce the amount of time and resources that schools and universities have to spend on managing and maintaining their devices.
There is also access to additional features and tools that are specifically designed for educational use. For example, it includes the ability to create and manage student accounts, as well as the ability to set up and manage guest accounts for visitors. Additionally, the license includes access to Google Classroom, which is a web-based platform that allows teachers to create and manage online classes, assign homework, and communicate with students.

Take a look at some of the latest features below:

Chrome OS Upgrades:
  • Enable standardized testing with “Kiosk Mode”
  • Provide quick access to Chrome without login for library and lab use
  • Easy and flexible login using third party SSO providers
  • Automatically re-enroll devices to your organization after they’re reset.

  • Device reporting allows you to view the most recent users for each device and set up alerts when devices are offline for too many days in a row
  • Track and control your fleet, set custom annotations, and integrate with third party tools to provide additional controls

  • Control automatic update schedule
Overall, the Google Chrome Education Upgrade License is a valuable tool for schools and universities that use Chrome devices. By upgrading their devices to the latest version of Chrome OS and gaining access to additional features and tools, schools and universities can improve the learning experience for students and teachers, while also reducing the time and resources they have to spend on managing and maintaining their devices.
