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:

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.
