  • Chromebook Connection

    My school only has Chromebooks for the kids. My IT and I have tried connecting the EV3 to the Chromebook with no luck. We've tried both USB and Bluetooth. They tell me it just can't be done regardless of the new Chromebook app. Any suggestions?

    Just this year we started to use the school Chromebooks for our club. We found that you need to open the program, turn on the robot, wait for it to boot and when fully ready, then connect the usb cable. Give it minute and it should find the brain. There is a limited selection of programing tools but, you can use the loops and switches to get to the sensors. We try to get the kids to avoid bluetooth but, they do it anyway and seem to be able to connect. I haven't tried it yet. Hope this helps.

      Unfortunately that still didn't work. Thanks for the suggestion.

        We don't use Chromebooks, but you might try a wifi connection. We have had good luck connecting with the Edimax EW-7811Un 150Mbps 11n Wi-Fi USB Adapter, Nano Size. Each one costs about $10 and is small enough to not get in the way.
