Fresh out of #ISTE2015 , the #GoogleClassroom Team just launched a set of brand new features, some rolling out over the summer and by August:
Classroom API: The Classroom API allows admins to provision and manage classes at scale, and lets developers integrate their applications with Classroom.
Classroom share button: a simple way for developers – or schools – to allow teachers and students to seamlessly assign or turn-in links, videos and images from another webpage or product.
Mobile Classroom notifications: In the next few weeks, we’ll be adding mobile notifications in our iOS and Android app.
Re-use previous posts: If you used Classroom this year and want to reuse your assignments or materials in future classes, you'll be able to in August. We’re planning to roll out the ability for you to reuse assignments and posts from old classes.
Easier provisioning of Google Apps accounts for your domain: Last week we introduced a new API to generate available usernames and create Google Apps accounts in your domain: account provisioning for Google Apps.
