Google has created a new product called Classroom which combines Google Docs, Drive and Gmail. Google Classroom is an application targeted for use by educational institutions to assist in the creation and organisation of paperless assignments with ease and efficiency.
Classroom is very versatile as it allows teachers to create assignments, share a single document or automatically make copies for each student. The application automatically creates Drive folders for each assignment and for each student taking out the hassle of organising paperwork. Classroom also allows teachers to view the extent of completion of work and provide direct feedback in real-time along with making announcements and posing questions to students. Students can also easily see on their homepage the assignments which are due.
Classroom, which assist in assignment creation, management and communication will be officially released in September 2014. Google is currently offering educational institution an opportunity to trial the product for free before its release. If you are an educational institute on Google Apps you can apply for a trial here. If you would like help implementing Classroom, feel free to contact us to assist. firstname.lastname@example.org ph: 03 9999 3106
