Guardians and Parents in Google Classroom Now Supported By Salamander Active Directory

96x96_yellow_stroke_icon1x_thumbGoogle Classroom has just launched a new feature to support parents and guardians – blog post. This will allow Google Classroom to share summaries of student work with parents. They can receive daily or weekly email summaries of student work and class announcements, allowing them to keep up-to-date with what’s happening in the classroom.

We’re pleased to announce that we have added support for this to Salamander Active Directory, allowing it to automatically invite your students’ parents to Google Classroom, rather than an administrator needing to do it for each student. We can also remove parents from classroom if they stop having parental responsibility. This will work whether you use SIMS, Facility, iSAMS, Pass or any other MIS.

If you are using Google Classroom and Salamander Active Directory and would like to implement this then just email support and we’ll get it set up for you. Note, you will need to make sure that your contact information is clean and up to date before using it.

For more information on how we can create classrooms directly from your MIS/SIS please email info@salamandersoft.co.uk,

Salamander Active Directory now supports Google Classroom

96x96_yellow_stroke_icon@1xLast night, Google released a preview API for Google Classroom. Today, Salamander Active Directory now supports creating and updating Google Classroom from your MIS, whether it’s Sims, Progresso, Facility CMIS, Bromcom, iSAMS, Pass/3Sys, Integris or any other of the systems we support. This will allow the automatic creation and population with students and teachers of as many of your classes you want, whether it’s the whole school, or just a sub-set.

So come the new academic year we can pre-populate all your classes for the year, and archive your old ones – or whatever else you want.

Previously we supported creating and updating Google groups so that they could be used to manually create Google Classroom classes, but now with the release of the API we can take it a step further and fully automate their creation, and keep the rosters up to date and students and teachers move classes.

If you are an existing customer, then please contact support to get it set up, otherwise please email info@salamandersoft.co.uk if you would like to find out more information. Whatever your MIS/SIS/SMS there’s a good chance we already support it, otherwise we would be happy to add support for it.
