A Classroom mobile app and new desktop options for teachers

Posted: 14 Jan 2015 09:40 AM PST
Today we’re launching a native Classroom mobile app for both Android and iOS to help teachers and students be more collaborative in the classroom and save even more paper and time:
New with the mobile app, students and teachers can:
§ Snap a photo: Right from the assignment page in the mobile app, students can snap a photo and attach it to their assignment.
§ Share from other apps: Students can also easily attach images, PDFs and web pages from other apps to their assignments. 
§ Offline caching: Class streams and assignment information are automatically cached every time you open the app with an Internet connection, so that you can see them when you don’t have a connection. 

We’re also launching two new desktop features to help teachers stay organized as they head into the second half of the year: 
§ Teacher Assignments Page: On Classroom for desktop, we’re launching a teacher assignments page, where teachers will be able to get quick access to any assignment, see how many students are done and mark assignments as reviewed.
§ Archive Classes: We also know that classes don’t go on forever —that’s why today we’re launching the ability to archive classes. Archiving a class will remove it from the home page and make it read-only — teachers and class members can still view valuable information in archived classes, but can’t make any changes or turn in assignments.

Release track:
Rapid release and Scheduled release
