Versal Adds a Gadget Marketplace and Google Classroom Integration

A wave of updates to ed tech products is a sure sign that the new school year isn't far away. Already today I've shared updates about SeeSaw, ClassDojo, and WhatsDue. Not to be left out, Versal has some updates for teachers too.

Versal is a service for building online courses. (Click here to learn how to use it). Courses can be comprised of text, images, videos, quizzes, and what interactive elements that Versal calls gadgets. Many Versal gadgets are designed to help students see and model problems in geometry and algebra. You will also find some Versal gadgets that are interactive, explanatory images. All of the Versal gadgets can be found in their new marketplace section.

The other update to Versal to note is their integration with Google Classroom. You can now create your online course with Versal and share it to your Google Classroom.
