Increasing Interoperability

The need to focus on interoperability is more important than ever before as more and more educators shift to online, remote, and asynchronous instruction. And while technology affords a more flexible and personalized learning experience, effective distance learning often requires the use of several different technological platforms at once.

Our Integration Points

As a Google for Education Partner, we believe educational technology should be seamless to use and as impactful as possible. That is why we continue to create meaningful integrations between our digital experience and the technologies chosen by educators, to help every teacher become even more effective, and every student more actively engaged as a learner.

  • Google Classroom: You can now create an assignment in our Open Learning Platform and then share a link to that assignment in Google Classroom. Once they have logged into their McGraw Hill program, students can then click on the shared link and launch the assignment in Open Learning.
  • Google Drive: You and your students can now more easily attach all file types from Google Drive to assignments in Open Learning. In addition, teachers can create a worksheet template and then share individual instances of the document to specific students.

Crafting a More Accessible Experience

Teachers are often looking for one place to store and share documents, such as the gradebook, roster, and assignments. Students also don’t want to have to navigate into various platforms in order to access all the materials they need for a particular class. Our integration with Google Classroom will allow teachers and students to access all instructional resources through one click and sign-in into Google.

Encouraging Collaboration

Assigning collaborative and group work can become even easier as you can easily set the permissions on a document so it can be edited by students.

Enabling Real-time Feedback

Making a Google Doc file editable can give students real-time feedback to students as they work. And because the documents live in Google Drive, you can make updates to distributed materials quickly without having to share out a new version to students.

Supporting Your Instruction, Wherever It Happens

We know how hard you are working to provide the best instruction, despite today’s challenges, and no matter the environment where learning happens. Our goal is to allow you to reach each and every learner and more easily do what you do best: teach.
