October 16th, 2014 · No Comments · Classroom, Google Tools

Google rolled out a few changes to Classroom earlier this week. You can now

  1. Restrict students from posting and comments.
  2. Change the sorting order to last name.
  3. Have assignments marked as done (when there is no product to turn in).
  4. Download multiples assignments grades at once.
  5. Invite students based on groups.
  6. Show deleted items in your stream.

Here is a great video from Aaron Svobada as he walks through the changes.
