Google Introduced An Educational Platform Called Google Classroom!

Literally, We all learn from Google! In honor of Teacher Appreciation Day, they got into a real business and introduced a new classroom called Google Classroom. An education platform for teacher-student communication. It’s part of Google’s Apps for Education lineup of products, and it uses Gmail, Drive and Docs.

Many were already using and streamlined it to make it more useful like Google’s new online platform. Google has an immense built-in existing population of users to get on board and It’s a huge advantage over the other startups who do the same.

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 to their Assignments page.

Starting today, teachers and professors can apply for a preview of the classroom. Based on the requests they receive, they 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. If you’re a developer or partner, sign up to learn more about integrating with Classroom. In order to make sure Classroom plays well with others.
