Nudging Students Into Better Grade Outcomes

Despite the proliferation of learning management systems, it is common for students to ask the instructor their grade during the semester. "Nudge" is a Google Drive based program that indicates not only the student's current grade, but the possible grade outcomes given various scores.

Create Group Projects

The use of group projects in higher education is common. However, students often don't have a digital place for their team to collaborate on files. Google Drive, with its online office suite and file storage, is an ideal solution to this problem. "Create Group Project" automates the process of creating folders with the proper permissions for each team in a class.

Remove Permissions on a Google Drive Folder

Remove Permissions solves a small, but important, problem that can occur when you use Google Drive in a classroom setting. When you use a product like 'Create Random Assignments,' you might generate a giant folder of files and sub-folders for your students. It would be nice to be able to revoke all permissions on a folder and its sub-items once the assignment is due. This program does just that.

When you run Remove Permissions on a folder, it removes all permissions (except your own) on every file and folder that you own within the selected folder.
