Whats New In Google Classroom
January 2017

  • 1. Individual assignments—Teachers can post work and announcements to individual students in a class.

Here how to post an assignment to individual students:

  • By default, an assignment is posted to all students in the class. You can post an assignment to individual students. However, you can’t post to individual students if more than one class is included. And, you can’t post to more than 100 individual students at a time.

    1. Next to All students, click the Down arrow Down Arrow and then All students to deselect it.
    2. Select the students you want to post the assignment to.

      Note: You’ll see the number of students you posted to on the assignment in the class stream. To view the students’ names, click number students on the assignment.

  • 2. New teacher notifications—Teachers receive email and mobile notifications when a student submits late work or resubmits work.  Unfortunately, you only have the option to turn on or off notifications.  

  • For mobile devices, you can also customize how you receive notifications on your mobile device. You can get a notification whenever: 

    • A student submits work a second time, after it’s been returned from a teacher.
    • A student sends you a private note.
    • A student submits work after the due date.
    • A teacher invites you to teach a course as an additional teacher.
    • Someone comments on your post.
    • Someone mentions you in a post or comment.
  • 3. Classroom user metrics—Administrators can view Classroom usage reports in the Admin console.
