Some class assignments require the use of the microphone or camera on a Chromebook. There are certain sites where the microphone or camera has been enabled by default district wide. For example, Schoology has been set to enable the mic by default. If you have another site that you would like added to the enable default, please create a HappyFox ticket requesting this. For sites that are not enabled by default, a small pop up like the one shown below should appear when opening a site that is attempting to access the microphone/camera. 




If students click allow, the site they are on (in the example above it is will have access to the microphone/camera, as well as any other features mentioned in the popup.
