The integration between itslearning and Google for Education is creating a powerful new ecosystem that supports enhanced teaching and learning.
A popular feature of the Google Classroom is the option for teachers to personalize assignments by selecting a document from their Google Drive as a general template, so that every student or group has access to their own copy of the document. itslearning has now made this functionality available in their own assignment tool. Teachers share access to students’ documents for each assignment, enabling them to monitor students’ progress and provide real-time feedback.
Here are 4 other ways the itslearning and Google for Education partnership improves the digital learning experience for both students and teachers:
