Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Google Classroom

Description: 

Google Classroom is a learning management system designed to integrate seamlessly with Google Docs and Drive. It allows teachers to assign homework, easily share documents, hold discussions, and share links.

What We Like: 
  • An LMS designed for blended environments
  • Works well with Google Drive and GAFE
  • Familiar social media look with stream view.
  • Straightforward assignments, questions (discussions), and announcement options.
  • Can repost material from one class to another.  
Limitations: 
  • Not as robust as a traditional LMS like Moodle, Blackboard or Brightspace.
  • Gradebook only
Classroom Application: 
Use to help ease workflow between teacher and student!
