What's New in ChromeTools 6.61


Student Browsing History


Have you ever wanted to see what sites a student has been visiting, but the student closed the tabs before you could check?  Now you can view their browsing history during an active class.  Look for the new "History" button next to each device on in class view.


Class Session History


Class history provides an archive of your recent classes.  From here, you can review general class stats and also review student browsing history from that class.  Choose Classes from the main menu, then look for the new "Class session history" tab in the Classes

Select any class session to view the session details.

Switch to the "Session students" tab to view the list of students.

Select any student to review the student's browsing history during class.



Privacy Notification


Now, when classes are started, a notification appears for students to let them know that a class is in session on their device and that it may be monitored.

Class Notice on Chrome Extension


The Chrome extension now displays "Class Session is Active" when hovering over the extension icon at the top of the browser.



  • When a device was moved to another OU, Control Tower would not update to show the new OU
  • When the notes for a Chrome device were too long, the alignment in Teacher Tools would get messed up, pushing the thumbnail out of line and sometimes chopping it off
