Google Classroom (English: Google Classroom) is a free web service, developed by Google for schools, that aims to simplify creating, distributing, and grading assignments without having to meet face-to-face. Google Classroom's main goal is to streamline the process of sharing files between teachers and students. Google Classroom combines Google Drive for assignment creation and delivery, Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides for writing, Gmail for communication, and Google Calendar for scheduling. Students can be invited to join classes via a private code, or automatically imported from the school's domain. Each class creates a separate folder in each user's Drive, where students can submit assignments for teachers to grade. The mobile app, available for iOS and Android devices, allows users to take photos and attach assignments, share files from other apps, and access information offline. Teachers can monitor progress for each student, and once graded, teachers can get back to working together via comments. Google Classroom was announced on May 6, 2014, with a preview available to some members of the Google G Suite for Education program. In 2015 Google announced a Classroom API and share buttons for websites, allowing school administrators and developers to better engage with Google Classroom. Also in 2015, Google integrated Google Calendar into Classroom for deadline assignments, field trips, and class speakers. April of the same year, it became possible for any personal Google user to create and teach classes.
In 2018, Google announced a classroom refresh, added a classwork section, improved the grading interface, allowed reuse of classwork from other classes, and added a feature for teachers to organize content by topic. In 2019, Google introduced 78 new illustrated themes and the option to drag and drop topics and assignments in the classwork section. Google Classroom ties Google Drive, Google Docs, Sheets and Slides, and Gmail together to help educational institutions move to a paperless system. Google Calendar is then integrated to help determine due dates, field trips, and class speakers. Students can be invited to classrooms via the institution's database, via a private code which can then be added in the student user interface or automatically imported from the school's domain. Each class created with Google Classroom creates a separate folder in each user's Google Drive, where students can submit work for a teacher to grade. Assignments are stored and graded on Google's suite of productivity apps that enable teacher-to-student or student-to-student collaboration. Instead of sharing a document residing in a student's Google Drive with the teacher, the file is hosted on the student's Drive and then sent for grading. Teachers can select a file that can then be treated as a template so that each student can edit their own copy and then return for grades instead of letting all students view, copy, or edit the same document. Students can also choose to attach additional documents from their Drive to the assignment. Google Classroom supports many different grading schemes.
39;s progress on assignments where they can make comments and edit.
Teachers have the option to attach files to assignments that students can view, edit, or get individual copies of. Students can create files and then attach them to assignments if a copy of the file was not made by the teacher. Teachers have the option to monitor each student's progress on assignments where they can make comments and edit. Changed assignments can be graded by the teacher and returned with comments to allow students to revise the assignment and return. Once graded, assignments can only be edited by the teacher unless the teacher returns the assignment. Announcements can be posted by teachers to class announcements which can be commented on by students allowing two-way communication between teachers and students. Students can also post to class announcements but they will not be as high priority as announcements by teachers and may be moderated. Various types of media from Google products such as YouTube videos and Google Drive files can be attached to announcements and posts to share content. Gmail also provides an email option for teachers to email one or more students in the Google Classroom interface. Classes are accessible on the web or via the Classroom Android and iOS mobile apps. The originality report was introduced in January 2020. This allows educators and students to view sections and sections of submitted work that contain words that are exact or similar to those from other sources. For students, it highlights the missing source material and quotes to assist students in improving their writing.
Teachers can also view originality reports, allowing them to verify the academic integrity of submitted student work. In G Suite for Education (free), teachers can turn on originality reports for 3 assignments. This restriction was lifted on G Suite Enterprise for Education (paid). Classroom allows instructors to archive courses at the end of the semester or year. When a course is archived, it is removed from the homepage and placed in the Class Archives area to help teachers organize their current class. When a course is archived, teachers and students can view it, but will not be able to modify it until it is restored. The Google Classroom mobile app, introduced in January 2015, is available for iOS and Android devices. The app lets users take photos and attach them to their tasks, share files from other apps, and supports offline access. Unlike Google's consumer services, Google Classroom, as part of G Suite for Education, does not display any advertisements in the interface for students, faculty, and teachers, and user data is not scanned or used for advertising purposes. LearningIndustry tested and created a review of Google Classroom, in which they highlighted many positive and negative aspects.
Among the strengths of Classroom, the review highlights ease of use, universal device accessibility, use of Google Drive as an effective way for teachers to quickly share assignments with students, paperless processes that mean late printing, sharing, and potentially lost work, and a feed system. quick feedback between students and teachers. Among the weaknesses of Classroom, this review highlights Google's heavy integration of apps and services with limited or no external support files or services, the lack of automated quizzes and testing, and the lack of live conversations that can help with feedback efforts.

The Quintessential Quintuplets (Japanese:, Hepburn: Go-Tōbun no Hanayome, lit. Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Negi Haruba. It was serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine from August 2017 to February 2020, with its chapters collected into fourteen tankōbon volumes. The series follows the daily life of a high school student Futaro Uesugi, who is hired as a private tutor for a group of identical quintuplets: Ichika, Nino, Miku, Yotsuba, and Itsuki Nakano. At the very beginning of the story, it is shown that the events are being told in a flashback, while an adult Futaro prepares to marry one of the Nakano Quintuplets whose identity is only revealed near the end of the series. The series is published in English by Kodansha USA under the Kodansha Comics imprint. The anime series is licensed in North America under a Crunchyroll-Funimation partnership. An anime television series adaptation produced by Tezuka Productions aired from January to March 2019 on TBS and other channels. The series is a commercial success, being the 5th best-selling manga in 2019, and the 3rd best-selling manga in the first half of 2020 in Japan. In 2019, the manga won the award for the shnen category at the 43rd annual Kodansha Manga Awards. High school student Futaro Uesugi is an academically gifted student that leads a difficult life-his mother has died, he has no friends, and on top of all that, his father has incurred a large amount of debt. An opportunity presents itself when the rich Nakano family transfers to his school.
39;s previous work, Karma of Purgatory (2014-2015), but was very simple at that time.
Futaro is promptly hired as a highly paid tutor. However, much to Futaro's dismay, he discovers that his five charges-identical quintuplet sisters of varied personalities-have no interest in studying at all and have abysmal grades. Some of the quintuplets are against having Futaro, whom they view as a stranger, in their apartment, but Futaro's diligent tenacity gradually convinces those girls to accept him and to improve their grades. Throughout the series, Futaro develops special relationships with each of the quintuplets. Through a flashforward, it is revealed that he eventually marries one of them, but her true identity is only revealed near the end of the series. The idea of "a group of quintuplets falling in love with the same person" existed even before the serialization of Haruba's previous work, Karma of Purgatory (2014-2015), but was very simple at that time. The idea was denied by his editor-in-charge. A year after, after the end of Karma of Purgatory, he discussed with his editor-in-charge what to serialize next.
Among the few ideas being come up with, the "quintuplets" idea was included again, which was accepted by the editor this time. After failures in two to three serialization committees, finally, it was decided to have a one-shot manga published first. The one-shot received positive reviews and therefore went on to serialization. It was decided the protagonist should be quintuplets at the very beginning. When later the idea of quadruplets and sextuplets was raised, it was rejected very quickly, around 30 seconds. Haruba said it might be a reference to Super Sentai when he came up with this idea. Similar to Super Sentai, Ichika (yellow), Nino (black), Miku (blue), Yotsuba (green), and Itsuki (red) are all represented by a color. The design of the quintuplets started from his favorite existing female characters from "some slice-of-life works only with girls", around 15 to 20 of them. The idea of adding numbers in their names was after the design was almost confirmed.
