View running Chrome apps and extensions
To view the list of running Chrome apps:
- Open an active classroom session
- Navigate to the Screens dashboard
- Click a student's screen tile
- Click the Apps tab
The Apps tab will show the number of apps that the student has open. Click the Apps tab to view a list of their running apps.
Third party Chrome apps will show their app name, as it appears in the Chrome Webstore, and Chrome extensions will show "chrome-extension:" followed by the extension ID.
Due to the limitations of the ChromeOS platform, live screen data from the apps cannot be displayed and cannot be closed by Teacher Commands (close tab or lock screen).
While Chrome Apps and Extensions cannot be disabled by GoGuardian Teacher, they can be blocked by GoGuardian Admin policies or Google Admin Console. Requests for apps to be blocked should be made to your local IT department or Administrators.
No Active Tab
The message "No Active Tab" will be displayed when a student is actively using a Chrome App (shown above). When a student switches back to a Chrome browser tab, live screen data will resume.
