I am now a fan of David Kimball and his Windows 10 video tutorials, his Twitter posts and his Beyond Twitter podcasts. In honor of his new website: http://www.davidvkimball.com/ I wanted to include a very helpful video that he made on the 5 Things You Should Do After Upgrading to Windows 10. I found the tips on how to customize Microsoft Edge particularly valuable. Who knew you had to go into the Advanced Settings just to change the Home page?

Enjoy the video, everyone. If you have upgraded to Windows 10, it will be a great help.

I took a lengthy look at both tools and put together this step-by-step guide/article that I hope will help teachers tie together three great Google student assessment and management tools: Google Classroom, Goobric (a Google online rubric) and student assignment submissions (linked through Doctopus) all in one place.
