New! Updates to Google Classroom

posted Aug 24, 2015, 6:05 PM by Shawn Beard
Google just released new updates to Google Classroom making it more useful and user-friendly than ever!  First,  a new + button has been added Google Classroom pages allowing users to post items to the stream.  

The + button allows users to post:
  • Announcements - post an announcement as always, including links, attachments, or videos.
  • Assignments - Add announcements with links, attachments, or videos
  • Questions - add a question as a check for understanding.  Allow students to reply or comment on one another's posts.  Grade answers to Questions.
  • Reuse Posts - Teachers can reuse old posts, moving them back to the top of the Stream.

Also, any post in the stream can be moved back to the top of the stream by clicking on the options menu for the item (three dots in upper right corner of post).
