Using Chromebooks in your class/school? start.me is a great launch page for Chromebooks!
First, create a team portal
You can get your own portal domain (e.g. https://yourschool.start.me) when you upgrade to our team plan ($150/year for educators). The advantages of a team portal:
- An easier and shorter URL to remember
- Sub-menu showing all your (team) pages
- Additional branding options (e.g. logo) for your team
- Additional layout options for your pages. Example: you can decide to hide the sign-in button, footer and search bar.
