- Google Classrooms, a learning management system based around Google Drive, is celebrating its one-year anniversary with new updates to its mobile app.
- Users can now edit, create, and grade assignments from the app, leave private notes on student documents so feedback stays between the teacher and student, and scan and add print documents using their mobile device's camera, according to EdSurge.
- In the year since its launch, 70 million assignments have been created on Classroom and Google Apps for Education, and the app has over 40 million teacher and student users.
Google Classrooms has been one of the most fun apps to follow since it seems to have a steady stream of updates and new features, a testament to Google's desire to push the limits in making data sharing and tracking seamless for education.
For those who don't remember, a little recap of the product's history: Google Classrooms was announced in beta in May 2014. By August, it had fully launched, and September brought the announcement of unlimited storage. October marked a round of upgrades (the integration of Google Groups), followed by mobile compatibility in January and custom themes in February.
It will be interesting to see what is to come in the next year.
