Tech Tip Tuesday: Organize Your Google Chrome Tabs

I use to have so many tabs open at once, that they would get lost. And half the time… many of the tabs I had open were multiple pages from the same website!

Now, although I have made it a goal to never have more than 10 open at a time, Google has released a new way to create tab groups to help you get organized. With tab groups, you can put related pages in a group, name and color code the group, and then collapse it for a streamlined view.

To Do This:
Right-click a tab, then click Add tab to new group.
Name your group, pick a color, and press Enter.
Drag as many tabs into the group as you like.
Click on the group name to collapse or expand the view.

Hope this helps!

Tech Tip Tuesday: Google Classroom to Schoology App

Google Classroom released a new app connecting Classroom to Schoology. Using this new application available under the Schoology App Center, you can import your Google Classroom content over to Schoology. You will no longer have to manually recreate material you had previously used in Google Classroom. The new tool is completely self-service and automated and can be run at your convenience when needed.​ Using this tool, you can have the same experience as with Google Classroom on Schoology. So for those of you who use both platforms, this should make your life easier.

Just go to the Schoology ap center –> locate the Google Classroom App (Use Command + F and search Google) –> then click on the title –> click Install LTI –> choose your courses.

Hope this helps!
