Google has rolled out a long-awaited Google Classroom feature . . .
On St. Patrick’s Day (better known as my birthday), Google for Education announced on the Google Workspace Updates page that, after a long wait, the ability to schedule stream posts, assignments, and materials for multiple classes in Google Classroom was available!
It’s even better than I could have imagined because it also lets you select different due dates and different topics for your assignments!
I also really like the “Copy settings to all” option which lets you set it up for the first class, then copy those settings to all of the classes, then make changes.
Let’s go over an example:
Say I want the assignment to launch simultaneously for all classes, but have different due times based on when I have that class period. Or maybe I just want to put them all in the same topic within the classes first, copy that, then modify the post times. I also like that I can select “post now” for some classes, but schedule for others.
I’m really happy with how this came out! Assignment and post scheduling is available in Google Workspace for Education Fundamentals, Education Standard, the Teaching and Learning Upgrade, and Education Plus customers (it can also be seen in my gmail account.)
