35 Awesome Apps that Integrate with Google Classroom
Did you know that Google Classroom plays well with others? Yep! Google is known for making their applications open to working with third-party applications, and Google Classroom is no exception. Are you using Google Classroom? I have put together a list of 35 Apps that Integrate with Google Classroom, making it even easier to create lessons and announcements with your favorite apps and resources. Last summer, Google opened the API for Google Classroom which means that other applications could connect or integrate more seamlessly with the platform. Translation: more goodies for you and your students! I wish everything connected to Google Classroom! But this is still a new option for developers, so it is not available through every application you use in your classroom. Expect this list of apps to grow a lot in 2016.
Ready to find apps that make Google Classroom even better? Check out these 35 Applications that Integrate with Google Classroom.
How to Use These Applications with Google Classroom
Most of the applications below connect to Google Classroom through a “share button.” This connection allows you to use some of your favorite websites and applications seamlessly with your Google Classroom assignments and announcements. Note: some of these applications are free, some are not.
To use the application with Google Classroom,
- Create an account within the application or website.
- Locate or create the activity or resources within the application or website.
- Use the “Share to Classroom” option within the chosen application. (The first time you use the connection you will need to grant permissions to connect your account.)
- This connection will allow you to do things like create a quiz and assign it to one of your classes in Google Classroom.
Note: This list is not exhaustive, nor does it include applications that sync with Google Classroom in other ways. There are also many apps that allow you to import your classes FROM Google Classroom. These apps will be shared in another post soon.
