Q: My Chromebook will not allow me to get on the internet while off campus.

A: When you leave campus, you must log back into LightSpeed from your current location in order to access the internet.  This is the case even if you have already logged into LightSpeed earlier in the day.     

1.       Connect to your offsite WIFI. 

2.       Log into Lightspeed.  Go to the homepage of the school website www.forrestcountyahs.com, and in the Links section on the right side, click on the link for Web Filter Login and sign into LightSpeed.

 If this does not fix the problem, please open a help desk ticket. 

 

Q: The headphone/audio jack isn't working on my Chromebook.  

A: The audio jack is probably not enabled.   

1.       Open the Audio Settings (In the bottom right hand side, click on the "Tray", and next to the Sound Setting, click on the > arrow.) 

2.       If the Headphone Option does not have a check mark by it, then the audio jack is not enabled and therefore will not work with headphones.  Click on it and it will enable the audio jack. 

3.      Click anywhere outside the options to close the Audio Settings box. 

If this does not fix the problem, please open a help desk ticket. 



 

Q: How do I download a Youtube video so it can be included in my PowerPoint or other presentation and the student can play it on their Chromebook?  

A: Most videos can be downloading using the website savefrom.net.   

1.       With the Youtube video open and playing, type ss in the address bar just before the y in youtube and press enter. 

2.       This will take you to the savefrom.net website.  When the green Download button appears, click on the button and it will download the video to your default download location.  

3.       You need to move the file into your Google Drive so you can easily share it and create the link for inserting it into your presentation.

 (If you get an error or have a video that you are unable to download, open a helpdesk ticket and be sure to include the youtube link.)
