Google Apps Update Alert!



Posted: 06 May 2015 09:57 AM PDT
In January, we launched a Classroom mobile app for iOS and Android, because we knew that students were increasingly relying on mobile devices to get homework done on the go. That app has now been downloaded more than 2.5 million times. This functionality isn’t just useful for students, however. We’ve heard from teachers that they also want to be able to keep track of their classes no matter where they are or what device they’re on. Today, we’re making that even easier with several new features. Teachers can now:

  • Create and edit assignments on the go, make copies of attachments, and attach new photos to assignments. 
  • Grade assignments from their phones or tablets, and add private comments for students.
  • Snap pictures to create assignments, so whiteboard photos and class notes can be posted to the stream for students who are absent and/or assigned to the class for a deeper dive.
