Sycamore Education, the provider of web-based school management solutions, has completed another phase of integration with Google Apps for Education.
While Sycamore Education already contains Google features, an enhanced Google Calendar and new Google Drive functionality have been added.
Sycamore Education’s built-in calendars have been enhanced to allow for full syncing with Google Calendar. Calendar events can now be managed from within Sycamore or Google Calendar and will appear in both locations, to ensure that students and families have the most up-to-date information.
The newly updated “My Documents” within Sycamore Education gives teachers and students the ability to view their files stored within Google Drive. Files and folders can be managed and shared without ever leaving the Sycamore Education system.
This new integration allows teachers to utilize Google Docs, Sheets and Slides to create classroom resources, tests, and assignments. These files can be handed out to students from within Sycamore Education and returned to teachers by the student. Students have the ability to collaborate and coordinate with their teachers using the tools built into Google Drive. Student submitted work is then viewed and graded within Sycamore Education.
These new features add to Sycamore Education’s existing compatibility with Gmail (IMAP) and Google Books. Sycamore Education is also completely compatible with the Google Chrome web browser.
The latest Google integrations come in response to the ever changing educational environment, as Sycamore Education continues to provide its customers leading-edge technology that is widely affordable.
