Improved and updated security menu in the Admin Console

 


Quick launch summary 

We have updated the “Security” category within the left-hand navigation of the Admin console by: 
  • Adding navigation access to security features previously only accessible from the Security settings page.

  • Updating the name of the Security Settings page to Overview. 
We hope these improvements will make it easier for admins to discover, access, and manage our suite of security tools.

Zoom’s Work Transformation Summit on Jan. 19: Fresh Approaches for Moving Forward

Access well-known educational technology tools straight from Google Classroom.

  We're making it simpler for instructors to use popular EdTech products that are most effective for their class right in Google Classroom with a new seamless integration of single sign-on, assigning, and grading. With the help of this feature, teachers can find, assign, and grade interesting content for their classes, and both teachers and students can access their EdTech tools without needing to navigate to other websites or apps or go through a cumbersome login process that requires remembering numerous usernames and passwords. This offers a more simplified experience when using technology to affect learning, in addition to saving instructors and students time. We partnered with 15+ EdTech companies to build custom add-ons, including Kahoot!, Pear Deck, IXL, and Nearpod.  Admins :  In order for educators to use add-ons, district administrators must provide access to them.
