Google released today some very good new features to Google Classroom. Teachers now are able to customize the look and feel of their classes by uploading their own images to use as themes. There is also a new cropping tool that allows teachers to crop their images to the perfect dimensions and it can automatically pick a matching class colour.
Google Classroom also provides you with a set of pre-made photos to use as templates for your class in case you don’t have a photo to use. There are actually 18 new images and 30 pattern themes in the gallery.Google Classroom also announced some new updates for its iOS and Android apps that include:
- Students and teachers can now view the About page in the mobile app for quick access to their class materials and resources
- On iOS, students can now add images, videos, and any other files to assignments from other apps
- Your favorite emoji are now available on the Android app [insert smiley face here]
- We’ve made overall changes that will increase the speed of the app’s performance, so you can get your work done even faster
