Google Classroom pushed out another update

Capture2

Google Classroom made some adjustments this week – you should see a pop-up that sends you an alert when you visit the site. The most notable involve the Classwork page.

There’s now a category called “Materials” that allows you to post and organize class resources – taking the place of the dearly departed “About” page, I guess.

In addition, Classroom sites that were created before the changes that occurred over the summer now have the option to add a “Classwork” page.

Read about the rest of the updates – and see what’s to come – on the “What’s New in Classroom” site.
