New- Google Classroom This Fall

Today, Google announced that using Google Apps for Education is going to get even easier to manage- this September, Classroom, the new learning management system developed by Google themselves will be available.  It is intended to help ”teachers create and organize assignments quickly, provide feedback efficiently, and communicate with their classes with ease.” On the flip side, it will also allow students organize their work, complete it, turn it in, and communicate directly with their teachers and each other in a more streamlined manner.

Some of the expected features include:

  • teachers can create and collect assignments, paperlessly

  • choose to share a single document, or make a copy for each student

  • will automatically create Drive folders for each assignment and each student

  • students will have an assignment page, where they can manage timelines and due dates

  • improve teacher/student communication allowing teachers to make announcements and ask questions

Teachers and professors can apply for a preview of Classroom. Google says Classroom will be available in the fall to any school using Google Apps for Education.
