Part of my job requires me to actively manage our instance of Google Classroom - the adding/removal of teachers, students, changing of class owners are just a couple of the every day tasks that are required. Unfortunately, Google Classroom doesn't have an included management interface for doing this - but there is a great command line utility called "GAM" which I use to accomplish these tasks.
I looked at a few different management utilities to do this - and essentially left GAM until last as I was really after a reliable (and free) utility that had a graphical user interface (GUI) instead of command line, but unfortunately at the time I was looking there was nothing that met these requirements (and worked) for me.
GAM can be downloaded from here - they have an excellent Wiki section with detailed instructions on how to get GAM setup and running within your environment.
In subsequent blog posts I'll be covering some of the scripts/commands that I use to manage and bring some control over Google Classroom such as identifying active classes, exporting them to CSV, archiving (disabling) old classes that are no longer required, synchronising members (teachers and students) and managing/maintaining the owners of Classrooms.
I'll be executing GAM commands from within powershell to do this.
What tool do you use for managing Google Classroom? Do you wish Google would create some kind of web/graphical user interface to do this?
