Google integrates Docs, Drive and Gmail in Classroom

Google on Tuesday unveiled Classroom, a free tool that integrates Google Docs, Drive, and Gmail so that teachers can assign and collect homework electronically, communicate with students in and out of class, and organize their curriculum. It helps teachers create and organize assignments quickly, provide feedback efficiently, and communicate with their classes with ease.

Classroom was designed hand-in-hand with teachers to help them save time, keep classes organized, and improve communication with students.

It is based on the principle that educational tools should be simple and easy to use, and is designed to give teachers more time to teach and students more time to learn, according to Zach Yeske, Classroom product Manager in a blog post.

The rolling out of Classroom, however will commence in September to all schools that use Google Apps for Education.

Meanwhile, Google is testing the new tool with several universities and colleges and now, teachers and professors alike have been invited to give the tool a spin, by registering for free on: https://classroom.google.com/signup.
