Istation in the Browser
Web-based version of the student application including assessments, instruction, Ipractice, and more
Istation is excited to announce the release of Istation in the browser. Providing a simpler and more reliable experience for students and a more streamlined onboarding process for educators, Istation in the browser will transform and significantly expand Istation’s capabilities.
We will continue to support the current Chrome app until June 2022. After that, all Chromebook users will transition to the browser version.
- You’ll no longer need to download the app or download the latest update from the app store!
- We’ll push updates out for you and do so more frequently to ensure a more consistent and exceptional Istation experience.
Please note that the initial release is only available in the Chrome browser on Chromebooks. Additional browser/OS combinations will be added in 2022.
