Google recently announced that they will be supporting Android apps on their Chromebooks, which is good news for ePortal users.  One of the next projects in ePortal development is an ePortal app for Chromebooks that will allow teachers to use the same content management and distribution systems while using their own hardware.  Because of the setup of the Chrome system, ePortal for Chrome users will lose the locking function and the ability to restrict browsing to allowed websites, but the app will still allow teachers to update and distribute content to multiple devices from a centralized location.  Google plans to roll out Android apps for Chromebooks at the beginning of the 2016-17 school year and the ePortal app shouldn’t be too far behind.
