Get familiar with CO functions in ChromeOS and Windows

Library > Teacher U

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.

Classroom Orchestrator supports Windows and ChromeOS. 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 outlines the functionality for Windows and ChromeOS.
