In a short video, Allyson shares how the Google/OnCourse integration benefits your students, teachers, parents, and administrators.
Over the past few months, the topic of Google and OnCourse integration has come up frequently as districts prep their blended and remote programs. It is a great option for districts seeking a best-of-both-worlds approach, taking advantage of Google's terrific toolkit while utilizing OnCourse to add integration, transparency, rigor, and moderation.
Some of the big reasons why districts use this integration are:
Provides a more centralized experience for parents, allowing them to view upcoming content and assignments for all classes in one place
Lets teachers use all of their Google content with a tighter connection to their OnCourse Grade Book
Adds transparency for administrators to provide better support; they can see what any student/parent sees in a live view
In this short video, I share a few basics on how this works for teachers.
Using the OnCourse Classroom LMS with Google also infuses lots of features missing in Google Classroom, like tracking student mastery of academic standards, classroom messaging, and tech-enhanced formative assessment.
