Useful Extensions

Hi [accessally_user_firstname],

‘Extensions’ are small software programmes that give your web browser additional functionality. Extensions sit inside your Chrome browser (as well as Firefox or Safari also) and can be turned off or on as you wish. You can get extensions from the Chrome web store.

These extensions have been carefully curated for you. Use the filters to show various categories, such as:

  • The application it is for: Chrome Browser, Hangouts, Mail, Documents, Sheets, Gmail, Calendar, Drive, etc.
  • The intended audience: Office Staff, ICT Leaders, School Leaders, Class Teachers or Students.
  • A quick description.
  • You can also search using terms you choose.

Watch this movie to learn more about extensions for Google Chrome.
