Google Classroom App Integration?

Follow

Are there any plans to integrate Google Classroom into Schoology, perhaps as an app? It's pretty useful as a way to distribute and share Google Drive files, and if folks could do that from within Schoology, it would be help people realize that Classroom is a good companion to Schoology, not a replacement (plus it might be a good way to have course enrollments built already so teachers wouldn't have to create their own Google Classrooms, simply for the sake of sharing files). Just wondering. Thanks!

    With the new Google Classroom APIs just announced at ISTE, this looks like it's entirely possible. I hope the Schoology development team will seriously consider this.

    Now that Google has announced the Google Classroom APIs, I would hope that this request becomes a real possibility. I know our teachers would LOVE to have assignments in Google Docs, stay in Google Doc format throughout the assignment, development, and grading process. This would be HUGE!

    Integration with Classroom would make Schoology so much more useful. We are new to the Enterprise version this year. Teachers who used Classroom last year are resistant to using Schoology since it lacks the Drive management features. They don't have the time to deal with managing two different things. We would like to see all of our teachers using Schoology but it is tough to argue for them to have to use both to get all of the functionality. I would think that adding that integration will be necessary as I'm sure other competing LMS products will roll that out soon.

    We have exactly this problem. I am making an app that aims to solve it!

    A few teachers at my are school are already using it and it works great. I still need to implement a few small features to make it do everything that classroom can do, but for now it does 90%

    I've sent it to Schoology to see if I can get it into the app center. Does this look like something that would solve your problem?

    Any movement on this request? I have more and more teachers asking why they should use Schoology as Google Classroom is far superior for document distribution, collaboration, and grading.

    What a shame that the folks at Schoology cannot see this need.

    *Bump this request again - everything that has been said above is still true.  We are a new to 1:1 and new to Schoology district, but have had mobile labs on checkout so many of us used the original doctopus/flubaroo and then Classroom.   Can't echo loudly enough that Schoology needs this "make a copy" and keep the document edittable / commentable / resubmitable as the students OWN copy without changing the teacher-author's original assignment.

    It doesn't look like this is a feature that will be implemented any time soon...

    However, you can add this functionality to Schoology now through an App: https://schoology.com/apps/profile/533830187
