Free Technology for Teachers: Chalkup - Distribute & Grade Assignments in Google Drive Without Using Scripts

Free Technology for Teachers: Chalkup - Distribute & Grade Assignments in Google Drive Without Using Scripts | Using Google Drive in the classroom | Scoop.it

Chalkup is a neat service that combines the concepts of Google Drive and Edmodo into one slick package. In Chalkup you can create classes to which you distribute announcements and assignments in the message board style that you find in Edmodo. Your students can sign-in to see what you post, reply to your posts, and submit assignments. The best aspect of Chalkup is found in its Google Drive integration

Gerald Carey's insight:

As Mr Byrne points out, this might be a useful alternative to Doctopus in terms of setting up classes in Google Drive and distributing documents.

The Chalkup website suggests that it is an alternative to Learner Management Systems so it might be worth investigating from that point of view.
