Previewing a new Classroom

Dozens of LMS companies are reexamining their business plans this week after the launch of Google's preview of Classroom, part of the Google Apps for Education suite. According to their official blog, Classroom helps teachers:

  • help teachers create and collect assignments paperlessly
  • make announcements, ask questions and comment with students in real time
  • creates Drive folders for each assignment and for each student. Students can easily see what’s due on their Assignments page.

Google says it wants the applications to "play well" with others. I'll believe that when I see that.
