What is the Google Classroom API?
Google Classroom is a free LMS (Learning Management System) provided by Google that allows educators to create classes, distribute assignments, send feedback, and see everything in one place. Classroom also seamlessly integrates with other Google tools like Google Docs and Drive.
Quaver can integrate with Google Classroom using their API, which allows us to pull class and roster data into Quaver. This integration will make it so that any classes and rosters that teachers see in their Google Classroom will be reflected in Quaver automatically.
Because Google Classroom is a free tool available to any Google user, Quaver only supports rostering via the Google Classroom API for districts that actively administer their Google Suite for Education and use Google Classroom as their primary LMS. Additionally, users must access Quaver using Sign in with Google to enable automated rostering via the Google Classroom API.
How to set up Google Classroom API roster data exchange with Quaver
There is no configuration explicitly required on the district side to set up automated rostering via Google Classroom API with Quaver. Our integrations team will configure your district for Google Classroom API sync on our end. Your users will then be prompted to allow access to their Classroom data when they access Quaver via Sign in with Google. Users will go through the workflow below.
