PowerSchool Enhances Google Apps Integration
PowerSchool has updated its learning management system, PowerSchool Learning, to improve its single sign-on integration with Google Apps for Education.
In previous versions, PowerSchool Learning would send teachers a PDF snapshot of students’ homework assignments, and then they could use Dropbox Annotator to provide feedback to students. However, teachers wanted the ability to comment on student assignments within Google Drive while maintaining a record of homework submission dates in PowerSchool Learning.
In response to customer demand, PowerSchool enhanced its single sign-on integration with Google Apps for Education. Now, when students complete homework assignments in Google Drive and hand them in through PowerSchool Learning Dropbox, teachers receive a link to the document in Google Drive, as well as the PDF snapshot. This new functionality gives teachers the option of annotating student assignments using either Dropbox Annotator or Google Drive’s markup tools.
