August 18, 2014

Google has officially launched its new learning management system, simply called “Classroom.” The platform has been available in preview since May, but is now in full release. Classroom integrates with Google’s Apps for Education suite, enabling teachers to create within Google’s office software assignments that students can complete and return with just one click. The platform also includes features for grading, real-time feedback on student work, commenting, homework collection, and announcements. A spokesperson for Google noted that there is significant interest from third-party developers to build tools that will integrate with the platform, but would not reveal any further details. THE Journal
