Step 1: Installing the Kelvin Chrome Extension
One of the ways we collect feedback from your students is via a Chrome extension. This is nice because it avoids forcing students to log in to a portal, which can waste time in the classroom with forgotten usernames and passwords. Instead, students access our Pulses when logged in to Chrome browser with their school Google credentials.
Please Note: You will need to ensure our URL is not blocked, and you will not be able to collect Pulse responses from students in the Chrome browser until this setup has been completed.
If you have any trouble at all, please contact us and we'll get everything sorted with you.
- What you need: Google Admin Console access & Google Chrome Browser
- Estimated Time: 5 mins.
Here are the steps
Sign in to the
G+ Suite Admin Console with your school email and password
"Chrome management" in the "hamburger" menu (that's the white 3 stacked lines in the top-left corner)
"Apps & extensions" (If G+ Suite shows “organizations” in a left sidebar, be sure to select the top-level organization)
Hover over the add app/extension
"Add Chrome app or extension by ID" button, which is the second button from the top.
Paste the Extension ID into the
"Extension ID" field.
Extension ID: obcailimoifbmhjniopljefnegfeodif
"From a custom URL" in the
"From the Chrome Web Store" dropdown
Paste the URL into the "URL" field.
Click "Save" in the popup (modal)
"Allow install" dropdown
"Force Install" from the dropdown
"Save" in the top bar
This will cause the Kelvin extension to be automatically installed when each user’s Google Chrome checks for G+ Suite-managed enterprise policies. Please note: You can manually have Chrome check for updated policies by going opening the
Chrome Policies from your Chrome browser, click “Reload policies”, and then look for the Kelvin “K” to appear in the Google Chrome toolbar to the right of the address bar. And...
Woot! You did it. 👍
