Archive: Use Chromium OS Conversion Pilot Project to give your old laptops new life!

featured image

Chromium OS is the open-source development version of Chrome OS, a Google operating system (OS) that Chromebooks use. An entirely free OS, Chromium converts PC computers and laptops into state-of-the-art CloudReady devices that work much like Chromebooks. That means outdated computer systems can be retooled with Chromium OS, including powerful Google Apps and tools.
Accompanied by a full suite of free Google Apps for Education, it gives learners, teachers and program administrators access to inexpensive and sustainable cloud-based digital tools and software without the added cost of new hardware. Chromium OS is an easy-to-navigate operating system that avails of Google Apps like Google Drive, Google Docs, Gmail and Hangouts with a one-time simple login.
Due to overwhelming response to our Chromium OS Conversion Pilot Project, only a few spots remain for adult education service providers to participate.
