Orchestrator features by OS

Classroom Orchestrator is our classroom management solution, giving teachers the ability to easily manage a whole class of students on devices while giving IT admins controls to ensure network performance and safety.

Currently we support Windows and Chrome OS for Classroom Orchestrator. (Mac OS X is on our roadmap but not yet scheduled for release. iOS is not supported due to Apple restrictions. Apple’s Classroom app became available with iOS 9.3.)

Capabilities vary by OS because we are limited by what the manufacturer allows us to control. This table outline the functionality for Windows vs ChromeOS.
