How to Install Tyto Online
For Chromebooks, we use an Android app installation.
This will work on Chromebooks running Chromium 53 or later. For a full listing of Chromebooks that support Android applications, check this link: https://www.chromium.org/chromium-os/chrome-os-systems-supporting-android-apps
Simply head over to the Google Play store to install the game as an Android application.
Internet Ports Used
We use a few internet ports that allow the game to communicate and will need to be un-blocked.
These are: 60000, 60001, 62873, 62872, 3457, 9001
We do have a scheduled update process for new content we are adding to the game. For example, adding a new Module over winter break that teachers can use in Spring. The planned annual update schedule is:
- New School Year Update (~August 1st)
- Winter Update (over winter break based on schools' schedules)
- Summer Update (after the school year ends we may opt to do an update for students or teachers using the product over the summer, especially if we are testing new content for the following school year!)
If you do not want to update during the school year, please reach out to us about maintaining an older server for your school through the end of the school year. You can use the chat on the bottom right of this page or submit a support ticket ("Submit a Request") for us to set up for you.
