Ten Google Workspaces Features for Teachers You Might Be Overlooking

Google Workspaces (formerly known as G Suite, Google Apps, and just plain Google Drive) has a lot of great features for teachers and students. Some of them are obvious while others might be considered "hidden" features. Those hidden features are often little things that make using Google Workspaces a little easier than faster. In this video I highlight ten of my favorite Google Workspaces features that are often overlooked.



Featured in the video:
  • Google Docs: new document shortcut.
  • Google Slides: specify video start and stop time.
  • Google Forms: set default point value.
  • Google Sheets: apply a theme.
  • Google Meet: blur your background.
  • Google Classroom: copy an entire class.
  • Google Jamboard: duplicating objects.
  • Google Drawings: hyperlink elements of a published drawing.
  • Gmail: schedule sending of messages.
  • Google Keep: set reminders based on time and place.
