New features in Google Classroom came out today. The Google Classroom reads every piece of feedback that is submitted. Many teachers were asking how they can make their classrooms more about their students by using a picture from their class rather than the default images in the theme gallery.

Submit Feedback

Submit feedback to the Classroom team by clicking on the question mark in the bottom right hand corner of Google Classroom.
Send feedback to classroom team

Choose “Send Feedback” to share your ideas for what you want in Google Classroom. Choosing “Ask a question” takes you to the user forum where other users can help you with questions. Use the “Send Feeback” to get the ear of the Google Classroom people.

Custom Themes

For those who were feeling restricted by the default themes in the Gallery, Google Classroom now allows you to upload your own image for your classroom image banner.
