Google Chromebook

As MEUSD embarks on this new journey of deploying 1:1 Chromebooks for our students, we want to provide as many help resources as possible for our students and staff. This page is intended to provide a 'getting started' resource for students and staff and not a comprehensive, in-depth training.
*Some functions may be different than depicted in the videos due to MEUSD's Chromebooks being set up as a district device and not a personal device. These differences are minimal. See notes below videos.
 
Logging into the Chromebook is easy!
Simply use your District Google log in, the same login you use for Google Docs on your computer.
 
These videos will provide a simplified overview of the Chromebook which will only get you started and on the road to Chromebook proficiency!
 
Total runtime for all videos on this page is 17 minutes
 
Begin with the intro video and follow them in order (as numbered) or skip around. The choice is yours!
