Enhancements to coursework in the Classroom API
Hundreds of education developers use the Classroom API to integrate
their applications with Google
Classroom. Last year, we announced
the ability for external applications to read and write assignments. We've
received a lot of feedback from developers who began integrating assignments
with Classroom, and they said that they wanted to do even more.
Today, we're making the coursework endpoints more robust, with additional
management capabilities. Applications can now:
- Create and update questions
- Modify and delete coursework
- Add Drive items and YouTube videos to coursework and student submissions
In case you missed it, we've also made other recent updates to managing parents and guardians with the API. Classroom sends daily or weekly email summaries to guardians, and applications using the API to manage guardians can now detect if guardian visibility is enabled for a course, and list all guardians and guardian invitations in a domain.
For more details on what you can build with coursework, review the documentation, the FAQ, and ask questions on Stack Overflow. As always, let us know what you're building using the #withClassroom hashtag on Twitter or Google+. We look forward to working together to make it even easier for teachers and students to use the tools they love with Classroom.
