Jen - 

Do you have specifics on this? I have heard of difficulties even on "traditional" platforms, and I think some of it may be traced to file types that are distributed... Or does Moodle require underlying plugins (java) for upload/embed?

I understand they are not ideal for taking online classes through VTVLC, and given the direction of online and blended learning under Act 77, I would be hesitant to get them in a high school environment.

Hey all.

This is not a "bash Chromebook" inquiry...

I was wondering if you might be willing to reply with challenges and/or limitations to using Chromebooks in the Educational environment.  Might be helpful to have input from the management, user and Integration perspectives.

Please feel free to respond OFF LIST as I am neither looking to bash the platform nor rehash the comparisons between different platforms.  If I do gather helpful information, I would be willing to share if requested.  This is more for my (personal) greater understanding of Chromebooks and their usage as I have not had the experience...

Thanks in advance.

Keith
