Questions Regarding Chromebooks

Issue/Question

Will I be able to use a Chromebook for work at USD using the Google Apps?

Will Zoom work with a Chromebook?

Environment

  • Google Chromebooks

Resolution

  1. You can use a Chromebook at USD but some software may not be available for the Chrome Operating System (OS)
    Note: You can use the Library computers or checkout a computer from the ITS Service Desk if needed. These are available on a First Come First Served basis
  2. You can use Zoom by following these instructions
  3. Please contact the instructor(s) of your course(s) to see if you need a Windows or Mac computer

Note: ITS provides limited on-site support for Chromebooks and the Chrome OS, to include connecting to the USD wireless network (eduroam), installation of Office 365, and Zoom web conferencing.  Some software may not work on Chromebooks. Printing to Pharos printers from a Chromebook is not supported and does not work. ITS does not provide hardware support or repair for Chromebooks.
