ClassTag has launched a new feature that will make it easy for teachers to post the content of their Google Classroom in their class on ClassTag. With ClassTag’s partnership with Google Classroom, we have launched what we call “Google Classroom Parent Portal” that automatically syncs the content posted on Google Classroom to ClassTag for parents to view.

This feature will make it so much easier for the parents to communicate with the teachers via ClassTag Messaging and still have visibility of everything their children need from Google Classroom without switching from one platform to another.
