Google Classroom Could Bridge a Gap in Online Learning - WILLIAM FENTON, PC Magazine

Contrary to popular perception, faculty are not reflexively opposed to online learning. In a recent survey of 3,500 postsecondary faculty and administrators, Tyton Partners found that a majority of faculty—63 percent—valued the potential impact of courseware. The trouble is, they lack the time and training to pursue it. The solution isn't another learning management system (LMS). Educators need an easy onramp to blended learning that leverages the tools and repositories they already use. Google might have the answer. Google G Suite for Education is already a fixture in K-12 and higher education. According to Google, 70 million students and teachers rely upon the online suite—half of all primary and secondary students in the US and more than 800 colleges and universities, as of last spring.
