The folks at Google Classroom have put together this handy Back to School guide to help teachers using Google Classroom learn more about the newly released updates and make the best of this learning management system in their instruction. The guide includes answers to 12 questions all of which revolve around the main functionalities in Classroom. Going through the answers, teachers will get to learn how to operate the new tools such as Classwork and the People page. They will also learn where to locate integrated services such as to-do page, About page, how to opt out of using Settings page, and many more. You can check the full guide from this page.

As we have already stated in a post we shared last week, Google Classroom has introduced a huge refresh adding a number of interesting new features that will facilitate, among other things, setting up and managing new classes, grading students work, organizing content, sharing feedback, creating engaging learning hubs, and many more. Anoher set of equally important features are expected to be released soon. These include:
“Materials on the Classwork page
You can add class materials on the Classwork page. This will support sharing and organizing resources like readings or reference materials.
Classwork page for existing classes
Moving forward, any new class that you create will automatically have the Classwork page. For any classes you created before the Classwork page was available, we’ll soon provide a way to add the Classwork page to them.
Create quizzes in locked mode
You can use a locked mode to keep students focused when taking Google Forms quizzes on managed Chromebooks. We’ll add the ability to create Google Forms quizzes from Classroom, streamlining the assignment process and saving time.”
