  • AIR is releasing a new version of the ChromeOS Secure Browser (v3.1). While the new browser has some value-added features, the earlier version (v3.0) will continue to be fully supported, so there is no requirement to update this year.  However, the key feature in the v3.1 release is that it will prevent a student’s Chromebook from going to sleep during testing. This improvement will help those students working on a draft paper or on a reading passage.  It will effectively prevent Chromebook’s default inactivity timeout.
