No more Grade Book double-entering for teachers using Google Classroom

Google announced they are making Google Classroom Grade Sync available to all districts using Infinite Campus on August 11, 2020. The connection was previously only available to districts participating in Google’s beta program. 

What does this mean for teachers? First, there’s some setup your district and you need to do (see below). Once you are all set up, your Google Classroom gradebook will talk to your Infinite Campus Grade Book – no more re-entering assignments and scores in Infinite Campus! All you need to do is click the “sync” button in Google Classroom, confirm each assignment is aligned as you desire in Campus, and you are done!  Continue reading “No more Grade Book double-entering for teachers using Google Classroom”

Using Campus Learning for online instruction

These are interesting times.  

As more and more schools close their doors to curb the spread of COVID-19 and expecteachers to move lessons online, a new challenge emerges. Teachers need tools to assist in e-learning, and need to figure out how to use them. 

To do our part, last Monday Infinite Campus offered licenses for the Campus Learning LMS to all Campus districts for free until the end of June 2020. This means your district’s Campus administrator has the ability to give you access to all features of Campus Learning immediately. Sorry, but since Infinite Campus always works through districts, we can’t give you access ourselves. 

If you have never used Campus Learning before and are now being asked to learn it and continue teaching simultaneously, that’s a big ask. But it’s not as daunting as it may seem. Here are some resources to help.
