Hi

Does anyone on the list know of, or use, Google Classroom?  It's a
Google-Based LMS.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Classroom
https://classroom.google.com/

I want to experiment with it, but, in order to create a class, the
institution must have signed up for the G-Suite for Education
https://edu.google.com/intl/en-US/products/productivity-tools/#how-to
and I'm not sure if SQU has done so.

(And, yes, I am concerned about students' privacy, but, let's face it, with
all the cookies and gmail accounts and tracking of Google searches, etc,
that horse has been out in the pasture for a long time already :-)


Regards

Ken
