A school has been using Engrade for all their Assessment related work. Now that Engrade has been acquired by McGraw Hill - it's a Paid service.
The school is looking for an assessment application / tool similar to Engrade , but Free.
Please do recommend . School is based in Mumbai, Affiliated to IGCSE board.
Thanks in advance

Review your past Q&As from Google Slides

The Q&A from Google Slide's audience tools is an exciting new feature that I've been playing with since it came out. Yesterday I was presenting a session and was showing Research under the tools menu and spotted Q&A History! Sure enough, that's what I found.

This is a survey of interest from Google in having an annual license option vs a life-of-the-device option.

Currently Chromebook management licenses are for the life of the device, however in a 1:1 situation that life is very much shortened. I raised the concern that this is costing our school quite a bit of money since we have a 2 year replacement cycle, and they listened.

Annual License for Education - Google Management Console - Interest FormThis form is to submit interest in subscribing to an annual license (vs. Lifetime device license) for use with Chromebooks managed under an education domain in the Google Admin Panel.

Id down load the app if I was you and have a look at the expeditions. I wasn't quite as excited with them as I expected myself to be. Most only have 6-8 photospheres.

Does anyone know if you can switch back to the old Google Cultural Institute?

Visiting the website forces you to the new beta version which does not include the ability to create galleries and compare two items side-by-side.
The Google Cultural Institute brings together millions of artifacts from multiple partners, with the stories that bring them to life, in a virtual museum.

I am creating a teacher PD program with digital badges and G+. Might use google classroom to organize badge paths. I would love to connect with someone who has experience using badges for PD. Still so much that confuses me - like where each teacher will store badges. I know Mozilla back pack but would that be overload with G+, classroom, and badges for a staff of widely varying tech comfortability?

+Colleen Murray  - I'd love to Hangout with you about this. I spotted the same need a while back and so for the past year have been building a badge-based platform which is designed to be super-easy to use both for learners and for course-builders. You can think of it as 'YouTube with badges', although it works equally happily with Slides, PDFs or any other content. It's free to add free content, but has options for creating paid content too. I'm on London time but happy to talk anytime if that sounds interesting.
