How UClass is the Cake to Google Drive’s Frosting

We often get many of the same inquiries about UClass. As a result, we decided to devote a blog column to answering those questions! Today we debut Ask Milton, our brand-spanking-new FAQ-centered series, and we’re kickstarting it with this light-shedding question:

Compared to Google Drive, what makes UClass different?

While both fundamentally function as file management platforms, UClass.io is geared to serve K-12 educators, establishing district-wide resource-sharing networks. Here are a few key points of difference that set us apart and confirm that, together, we make the sweetest pairing in EdTech:

Tag-optimized search: Users “tag” files with keywords and standards so that locating relevant files is quick and effortless. Unlike in Google Drive, UClass.io tags and advanced search options allow users to pin-point files by category. Users can narrow search results by source, grade level, and subject or openly sift through categorized lesson plans, formative assessments, and other types of files.

Administrator surveyance: The UClass.io platform augments teacher-administrator communication with administrative folders. Administrators can select teachers by grade-level and subject to directly share folders with. Superintendents are also able to monitor resource activity and use district analytics to optimize ROI.

Cross-platform integration: UClass.io works in congruence with Google Apps for Education, allowing direct Google Drive file import. Instead of stopping in multiple places (e.g. like Google Drive, your computer, and textbooks) to find your resources, UClass consolidates that experience into a singular hub.

For a better grasp of the differences, refer to the following chart: UClass.io v. Google Drive

We are proud to be taking Google Drive to the next by integrating it into our comprehensive curriculum building system. UClass.io and Google Drive are complementary systems, so who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?
