RStudio can be used on a ChromeBook but the setup is complicated. Some directions that may work for you are here, here, and here. I am not a Chromebook user and this looks endlessly confusing to me.

It is possible, however, to use RStudio on “the cloud” or through a web browser. Doing this will require you to do some of the things that we do in class in a slightly different format, but it will allow you to use your ChromeBook. If you would like to give this a try then e-mail Dr. Ogle, who can then help you set up “RStudio in the cloud.”
