As a Google for Education partner, we are excited to announce new integration enhancements that will provide a cohesive and powerful learning experience for your students, no matter where they are. With TCI and Google Classroom, you can easily share content, automatically post TCI assignments, and sync student grades. The update simplifies navigation for your class by providing a direct link to TCI content and assignments within Google Classroom.
For teachers and students alike, the latest improvements provide greater flexibility for managing, accessing, and tracking TCI content, assessments, and grades — right from the Classroom stream. The new enhancements also offer teachers greater autonomy in managing students who are already connected to Google.
How To Get Access
On April 15th, the integration will be in open beta and available to users who opt-in. If you’re interested in trying it out, sign in to TCI and go to the ‘Assignments’ page. Look for the ‘Join the Google Classroom Beta’ message and fill out the linked form with your account email address.
How To Use the Latest Integration Enhancements
Step 1: Connect your Google Account.
After connecting a Google account, you’ll be able to sign in to TCI using the connected Google account and set up your Google Classroom integration.
Step 2: Link a TCI Classroom with a Google Classroom
Navigate to ‘My Classes’ from the sidebar and select ‘Connect to Google Classroom’ from the ‘Actions’ drop-down. Select the Google Classroom from the pop-up window and click ‘Connect’. You have to do this for every class you wish to connect to the Google classroom.
Step 3: Get Students Connected to Sync Grades
After you link your TCI class with your Google Classroom, your students will see a banner on the top of their account to connect their Google accounts.
On the ‘My Classes’ page, click the ‘Actions’ drop-down and then ‘Manage Students on Google Classroom’. You can manage the account connections and connect student accounts.
Step 4: Create assignments on TCI to automatically post to the Google Classroom Stream
Navigate to ‘Assignments’ on the sidebar. Create an assignment. If the assignment was successfully created on Google Classroom, you will see the Classroom icon next to the assignment.
You’re all set! Newly created assignments on TCI should be posted to Google Classroom and graded scores for the assignment on TCI will sync automatically for connected students.
