Whitelisting plug-ins through the registry in Google Chrome for Education

On April 14, 2015, an automatic update from Google disabled support for several web plugins, including Java, for their Chrome browser.

The Java plug-in required by Cognitive Tutor® Prime and MATHia®  will continue to be supported by Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari. Cognitive Tutor LITE and MATHia LITE are not affected by this Chrome browser update.

Students may change a Chrome browser setting to re-enable Java plug-in support.  This override will only work for the current user. To temporarily re-enable NPAPI (via chrome://flags/#enable-npapi), please review these instructions.

The Chrome browser will also provide an whitelist option for enterprises to temporarily re-enable Java plug-ins via Enterprise Policy. This option will only be available to schools using Google Chrome for Work and Education. To enable this override, review this blog post from Google or use the following instructions: 

1. Run regedit.

2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\Chrome and create a new key EnabledPlugins.

Section of registry containing EnabledPlugins

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Select EnabledPlugins, and create a new string value with the name 1.

4. Select 1 and modify it so data contains Java*

New registry key for Java

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Please note:

We expect Google to remove this exception in September 2015 by permanently removing NPAPI support. After September 2015 students using Microsoft Windows computers should begin using the Firefox or Internet Explorer browsers instead of the Chrome browser. Students using Apple OSX computers should begin using the Safari or Firefox browsers instead of the Chrome browser. Please reference the system requirements for a list of supported browsers.

Students can continue using the Chrome browser to launch Cognitive Tutor LITE or MATHia LITE beyond September 2015. After signing in, students can launch the LITE version of the software. If students do not see buttons to launch Cognitive Tutor LITE or MATHia Lite, please contact the Carnegie Learning customer support team for assistance.
