Google Released New Classroom Tools

May 7, 2014
Google today announced the pre-release of Google Classroom which is a free platform integrated with Google Apps for Education. It helps teachers create and organize assignments quickly, provide feedback efficiently, and communicate with their classes with ease. Classroom is based on the principle that educational tools should be simple and easy to use, and is designed to give teachers more time to teach and students more time to learn. 




With Classroom, you'll be able to:

Create and collect assignments:
Classroom weaves together Google Docs, Drive and Gmail to help teachers create and collect assignments paperlessly. They can quickly see who has or hasn't completed the work, and provide direct, real-time feedback to individual students.

Improve class communications: 
Teachers can make announcements, ask questions and comment with students in real time—improving communication inside and outside of class.

Stay organized: 
Classroom automatically creates Drive folders for each assignment and for each student. Students can easily see what’s due on their Assignments page.

Starting today, teachers and professors can apply for a preview of Classroom. Based on the requests Google will be inviting a limited number of educators to try Classroom in about a month. By September, Classroom will be available to any school using Google Apps for Education.
