Classroom weaves together Google Docs, Drive and Gmail to help teachers create and collect assignments paperlessly. They can provide direct, real-time feedback to individual students.
Teachers can make announcements, ask questions and comment with students in real time inside and outside of class.
In addition, Classroom automatically creates Drive folders for each assignment and for each student. Students can see what?s due on their Assignments page.
Starting today, teachers and professors can apply for a preview of Classroom. Google will invite 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.
