I am testing HiveSchool Teacher & Student with a classroom that is 1 to 1 with Chromebooks. It appears to be working, but the resources bookmark folder is missing from the teacher's chrome and when i recreate the folder & repopulate it with links, the resources still do not appear. Also curious about how to focus the kids on just 1 tab. I can remove tabs but cannot see how to freeze them onto 1 specific tab.

Hmm, this is working a little differently that it was during beta.

There should be a HiveSchool folder in the teacher Bookmarks bar (this is where resources are stored). I just tried deleting my HiveSchool folder and then manually recreating it, but that did not work for some reason. This is probably what you are seeing.

To recreate the HiveSchool folder, I deleted the extension from my teacher's Chrome instance (full remove, not just disable). Then I re-added the extension and the HiveSchool folder showed up. Actually for me, 2 HiveSchool folders showed up. The good one was the second one. Ack.

Once you get the resources folder restored, you can focus students on a single tab from the Resources tool. Click Focus on the tab you wish to force them to see.
