Feature Ideas  - 
 
Does anyone ever feel the need to "make a copy for every student" in an announcement?

When I put up a copy in an announcement, everyone can view but not edit. But what happens is that everyone opens in view mode and they see each other viewing and open the chat feature. My only recourse is make a copy for every student in an assignment, even though it might not be an assignment.

I've submitted the feature request.

Strange issue today that I never seen before.

When I share documents "copy for every student," one of my students only receives a "Drive File" document that is empty. When I checked her Google Drive, there are no documents in her classroom folder for the entire semester, nothing in the trash either.

This is the only time I've seen this happen and cannot figure out why this only happens with this student.

Best Practices  - 
 
So I just learned today that Goobric/Doctopus rubrics can also be used to grade video assignments. A colleague just showed me how students submitted video files in Google Classroom and she used the Goobric interface to watch and grade them.

She hasn't returned the assignment yet, so not sure if a Google Doc will be created to share the rubric feedback but even if it doesn't, it still makes grading easier.

All this time I just thought it worked with Docs only.

I've been using it with video's, and pictures since November and it is awesome!  Our whole district is now using it to gather evidence and demonstrate student growth by attaching a rubric and then aggregating the data into a very fancy google sheet that was created by another colleague.  Our students get feedback via the rubric that is emailed to them.  It's been awesome!

https://edpuzzle.com is another app that works nicely with Google Classroom. Trim online videos, insert your own questions at specific points you choose in the video, and your own narration. Post the assignment directly to Classroom. Very cool.
Make any video your lesson. Edit a video by cropping it, adding your voice or embedding questions. Then, track your students with powerful hassle-free analytics.

Anyone know the best way to record video on a Chromebook webcam so it can easily be turned in on Classroom?

I had a teacher ask about the share to classroom extension. He would like to share a webpage to the classroom but lock them into that page until they complete a test on that page.  I know the "share to classroom" extension doesn't do this so I was wondering if anyone knows of any other extensions that might lock down a browser tab for a test.  Thanks.

If there are test-OUs created under the grade OUs, then those can be used for kiosks. Then you can easily move select devices to the lower kiosk-OU and then move them back after the test.

+Stephen Gale has a Google Apps script that takes care of the OU-moving part. You/Someone would still have to create and managed the Kiosks, of course.

Is there a list of apps that play nice with Google Classroom? If not, should we start one?

Here are two Android apps I developed that allow easy linking of Classroom student rosters. Free version allow unlimited use for 1 class.

I had students download a fillable pdf to their google drive (a 1040ez tax form). They opened it up, completed some of it, saved it, and returned to it the next day. When they opened the next day, the info they entered the day before was saved but the form was no longer fillable, so they couldn't finish the rest without starting over.

Does anyone know the proper workflow for using fillable pdf's off the internet so this doesn't happen?

I want them to add the completed fillable pdf to the assignment in GC. Thanks.

Kami is another option for having students edit PDF's. I think what is happening is that the PDF tool is creating a new version of the PDF and the fields are not saving to the new PDF file. Just a thought.

Teacher Cal at http://www.edusync.com/ seems like an interesting product that can integrate with Google Classroom.

Question: Now that Google Classroom supports calendars for each class, what features does Edusync provide above those already supported?

Since Google Slides does not have a narration feature I was wondering what the best work-around might be.

I've use screencastify chrome extension and shadow puppet edu (iOS only). I am curious as to what else is out there.

Thanks.
