Google Debuts Paperless Classroom Feature

Google’s Classroom launched and is available to users of Google Apps for Education, a free suite of productivity tools for teachers. Classroom helps teachers create and collect assignments, automatically copy documents to distribute to students, and facilitate the use of Drive for each student, all via Google. Its goal is to let “teachers spend more time teaching and less time shuffling papers,” according to the Google Official Enterprise Blog.

Teachers can also view and comment on students’ in-progress assignments, track their work, and distribute grades. Classroom is available for 42 languages including Hebrew, Arabic, and Persian.
