Tools4ever, the market leader in Identity Governance & Administration (IGA), has further expanded its connector for Google Apps to include support for Google Classroom. This makes it possible to use source data, typically from a Student Information System (SIS) to create lesson groups automatically in Google Classroom, as well as to easily add or remove students. A teacher can then be added to this lesson group as its manager. Alongside this feature, the Google Apps connector offers a range of possibilities to manage user accounts automatically in Google Apps.

For downstream provisioning, e.g. managing user accounts in a variety of educational applications, Tools4ever has developed connectors for a range of business applications, including e-learning systems, e-mail systems, library, transportation and cafeteria systems, as well as numerous other educational systems. The connector for Google Apps has been available for many years and, until recently, focused on managing user accounts in Google Apps. The Identity Management solution by Tools4ever, Identity and Access Manager (IAM), can create, update and remove user accounts in Google Apps using source data. IAM can also perform a password reset for user accounts and synch it from Active directory to Google. IAM can also be utilized to allow users to add or edit specific attributes of their own accounts.

In addition to managing user accounts in Google Apps, IAM can create group or distribution lists and can add users to them. The feature is particularly useful in education, where classes or lesson groups are created. IAM recently also gained the ability to add the Google Apps rights to groups automatically.

Google Classroom
Google Classroom is part of the Google Apps for Education Suite. With Google Classroom, teachers can more easily organize and distribute assignments, as well as give students feedback. Everything works simply, quickly and easy, and deploying Classroom gives teachers more time to deliver lessons, while the learning process is also improved for students.
