Can our Chromebooks have the MimioStudio software loaded onto them?

Answer: 

Great question and thank you for your submission to MimioConnect. Chromebooks can't download the software to their device but do connect to MimioMobile through the web at this address: http://mobile.mimio.com. Once you get to the web address, you will see the options available to you for connecting. Here are the instructions to get you up and running with a Chromebook:
1. Open a lesson on your computer, not the Chromebook.
2. On the Chromebook, go to http://mobile.mimio.com
3.Now, inside the lesson page. Go to Tools>Settings>Mobile.
4. You'll see "Connection Information." You want to make sure that your information is the same on the Chromebook for IP Address, Port (use second number for Web), and input access code. Now,when you are looking at the Chromebook, click on TEACHER so it is in blue, and click on MANUAL for Connection methods. Here is where you can match up the IP Address, Port, and Access code. Once they are inputted correctly, click on "Connect."
5.Your lesson page should now be mirrored on your Chromebook.
You can connect every mobile device in the classroom with the purchase of just one annual MimioMobile license. Details on how to purchase the annual license can be found on http://www.mimio.com/en-NA/Products/MimioMobile-Application.aspx. Without the license, you are allowed up to 3 devices to connect at a time. As always, if you get a chance, check out the many tips and suggestions offered in our Ask a Master section!
