Question

can a session be conducted and run through a browser without installing anything on the client?

I am trying to find a solution that will allow 16 middle school students to connect to their own individual Linux desktop session without needing to install anything on their school issued chrome books. The goal is to teach a class introducing Linux while complying to a strict -no client side download policy.

Any ideas? Putting the chrome books in developer mode & booting from a usb stick is out of bounds I’m afraid.

I’m hoping for a browser based login or portal that the kids can use.

Hi @nathanhoward360

Good suggestion, but it would be adding an extension to the locked down chrome books. Frustrating because I looked at Chrome remote desktop and was told no.

Thanks though
