itslearning + G Suite for Education now

Phase One of this integration delivers what has been called a “killer feature,” and a favorite Google Classroom capability of teachers, that can be used together with group assignments, rubric assessment, plagiarism control, and peer assessment.

Here’s how it works:

Automated tasks provide more time to teach

Teachers can easily attach template files from their Google Drive when creating assignments in itslearning.

User Icon with G Drive icon

Logical and seamless

With one click, a separate copy of the file is created, in Google Drive for each student, and titled with the student’s name.

Proactive

While students work on the assignment, the teacher has the ability to check in on their progress (look over their shoulder, virtually) and if needed, comment on their work directly.

Human control

After the students hand in the assignment, itslearning will automatically manage permissions so that they cannot change their answers (though, if necessary, teachers can allow students to edit and resubmit the assignment).

‘A’ for effortless grading

Lastly, we have seamlessly integrated the submitted answers into a new, efficient grading workflow. Teachers can quickly and easily review each student’s work, enter feedback and submit grades – all in a single screen. Teachers can also easily navigate from student to student, saving valuable time from typical grading workflows.

Important

These capabilities are built on the pre-existing ability to add resources from Google Drive. But, importantly, this new enhancement is just the start of a broader set of integrations of G Suite products into the itslearning platform.
