There are tons of benefits to online educational tools and kids are used to being online, so teachers can utilize Web-based learning materials to make learning more engaging and fun. When students have to use a device that doesn’t work with all of the learning content teachers assign or they’re interested in, however, they can become disengaged. Whether the content comes from a publisher and enhances normal classwork, or is supplementary content that a teacher could offer for extra credit or added practice, it’s critical that the student’s device offers a complete learning experience.

Of the two devices we tested, the Windows 8.1-based HP 210 G1 Notebook PC powered by an Intel processor had fewer issues. The Chromebook 2 had more problems, ranging from issues with Java to requirements for workaround apps and more. Teachers need an option that will help students learn, not distract them. Schoolwork can be hard enough without having to fight with a device to show content—students need something for a full experience. The Windows-based HP 210 G1 Notebook PC experienced fewer problems with the kinds of online learning resources that students use today than the Samsung Chromebook 2.

  • There is now a way for students need to run Pearson's TestNav 7.5 from their Chromebook. Ericom's AccessNow is an HTML5 remote access solution that has been certified by Pearson as qualified for accessing TestNav 7.5 from Chromebooks.

    AccessNow enables Chromebook users to connect to Terminal Servers and VDI virtual desktops (or any RDP host), and run Windows applications or desktops in a browser tab. That includes applications like TestNav 7.5 that require Java support. You can open up an Internet Explorer session inside a Chrome browser tab, and then connect to the applications that require Java (or that work properly only using Internet Explorer) and run them in a Chromebook browser tab.

    For more information about AccessNow for Chromebooks in Education, visit:
