Tech Tip Tuesday: New! Schedule Assignments in Google Classroom

One of the things I love most about Google Apps for Education is that they're always working hard to develop and add the features that teachers request. Last week, they added a long awaited feature- the ability to schedule assignments in Google Classroom!

In the past, you could go ahead and create posts for future assignments, but they had to be kept in draft format and manually posted when you wanted them to post. Now, you can schedule them so (if you're like me) you don't forget!

There's really no magic to this one, I just wanted to let you know about it in case you've always wished it was there and haven't noticed the new change! To schedule your post, create an assignment as usual (this video can help if you don't know how!). But, instead of choosing "assign" or "save as draft", choose the new "schedule" option and set your date and time!

Thanks Google!!
