Google for Education: Learn more at the Google Cloud Government and Education Summit

Another successful InstructureCon is in the books! While you were there, we hope you were able to join our session, “Google and Canvas: What’s New with Google Workspace for Education” and walked away with a better understanding of our partnership with Canvas and new secure collaboration features. We’re very excited to help you learn even more and hear from peers at the Google Cloud Government and Education Summit on November 3-4.

Google and Canvas, Working Together for Educators

We shared a lot of information with InstructureCon attendees about our partnership with Canvas–like the value it brings to educators seeking out tools for sharing templates and  worksheets with students. Hopefully you took away some information about the ability to use Assignments within Google Workspace and Canvas to add rich feedback faster, using the customizable comment bank. And then there’s Originality reports, which uses the power of Google Search to help students integrate external inspiration into their writing, while making it easy for instructors to check for potential plagiarism. If you’d like to learn more about what Google and Canvas have to offer, you can watch our InstructureCon session here
