Google Classroom button for faster lesson sharing

whiteboard with Google Classroom

The Google Classroom “LMS” is one of the most popular and easy-to-use ones out there. If your school has been using it, you probably know it pretty well already. But did you know you can take advantage of it within Explain Everything? And we have just made it easier!

The Explain Everything product team is determined to integrate our digital whiteboard fully with all of the most popular LMSes – this is the main development goal for 2021. All of these integrations are coming up pretty soon, and one of the very earliest deliverables on this field is a special Share with Classroom button that you can already use with your Google Classroom system.

A Whiteboard with a Google Classroom integration

As a whiteboard that is specifically designed for teachers, Explain Everything has cared about integrating with a variety of LMSes since the beginning. If, somehow, you missed this blog post about using it with Google Classroom, take a look

So, how does this Google Classroom integration work and what’s changed?

Currently, you can share any of your Explain Everything creations to Google Classroom. This integration with our digital whiteboard couldn’t be simpler. It’s based on 3 main scenarios:

  1. Sharing a Web Video Link.
  2. Sharing a cloud project to collaborate with others.
  3. Sharing a project or another file created with Explain Everything.

What’s changed? We have now added a special Google Classroom button for faster sharing and it doesn’t require a Google Classroom app!

With the new Share with Classroom button, you are able to instantly send an Explain Everything collaborative project or a Web Video Link to your students via Google Classroom and on any Explain Everything platform without the need to install the Google Classroom application.
