Fall 2020 Google Update Roundup - GTP120


Google News and Updates
  • The Anywhere School: 50+ Google for Education updates
  • MEET
    • In September, we’ll kick off with a larger tiled view of up to 49 people and an integrated Jamboard whiteboard for collaboration. We’ll also release new controls so moderators can choose to always join first, end meetings for all participants, disable in-meeting chat, and much more.
    • In October, we’ll launch custom and blurred backgrounds to provide some extra privacy. Breakout rooms and attendance tracking will also be launching for all Google Enterprise for Education customers, allowing for more engaged classes and insights on participation.
    • Later this year, we’re rolling out hand-raising for all customers and Q&A and polling for G Suite Enterprise for Education customers. Plus, we’ll launch a new temporary recordings feature that will be available to all Education customers for free (premium recordings will still be part of G Suite Enterprise for Education). 
  • CLASSROOM
    • A new to-do widget on the Classes page will help students see what’s coming up, what’s missing, and what’s been graded. 
    • Teachers can now share a link to invite students to their class, which makes joining a class much easier. 
    • Classroom will soon be available in 10 additional languages, for 54 languages total.
    • educators can soon run originality reports five times per course (up from three previously). And with G Suite Enterprise for Education, educators will be able to see matches for potential plagiarism not only against webpages but between student submissions at their school.
    • school leaders with Enterprise licenses will have greater visibility into Classroom usage via new Data Studio dashboards, which allow admins to see active classes, measure feature adoption, and monitor teacher and student engagement. 
    • To support teachers and admins, we’re making it easier to sync Classroom grades with a push to your Student Information System (SIS), starting with Infinite Campus customers (and more SIS to come). Keep reading for more details on what’s new in Classroom.
