Google Classroom and G-Suite allow teachers to easily assign and collect digital work. These tools are extremely beneficial in helping to improve efficiency in the classroom. Integration between the itslearning LMS and Google creates a powerful ecosystem to support teachers. This makes it easy to get more out of Google by having all the benefits of the robust and easy-to-use itslearning LMS.

Create a class plan by organizing resources and aligning learning resources to standards.

Support collaboration by creating collaborative assignments for all course participants, groups of students or individuals. Promote a one-to-one classroom by using itslearning to connect to digital teaching and learning resources anywhere and on any device.
Assess assignments created through G-Suite by using itslearning tools for automated grading to easily assess student understanding. Align assignments to standards with standards-aligned rubrics, and give students concrete, actionable feedback via text, audio, or video. Communicate with students through surveys, discussions, live conferences and messaging through the itslearning LMS to gather different perspectives and assess students in a variety of ways.
Track student mastery of standards to gain insight into student progress and quickly identify and assign appropriate content personalized to each student’s needs. Follow trends and student progress through the incorporation of Google content and itslearning’s robust reporting functionality to track growth or identify anomalies over time. Share data with administrators by drilling down to view data by school, grade, class, and more.
