Data Sync synchronizes Courses, Classes, and Enrollments from your Student Information System (SIS) and Google Classroom.
Please Read the Google Support Guide before getting started.
Your organization must have a Google Workspace for Education Plus subscription for Staff and Students.
Student and Teachers must have an email address that matches the email address of existing users in Google.
Teachers, students and the Super Administrator may be in different subdomains, but they must all be part of the same primary domain.
The user that authorizes Data Sync to connect to Google Classroom must be a Super Admin in Google Workspace
How it works
Data Sync connects directly to your SIS using preferred APIs, standards like OneRoster, or alternatively you may also upload CSV files.
Data Sync collects a fresh set of data each night and compares that to what was collected the previous day, and synchronizes those changes with Google Classroom.
Course synchronization is one-way: Data Sync will not modify any manually created courses or enrollments in Google Classroom. These changes also will not be synchronized back to Data Sync.
You may begin by previewing a small number of Courses to learn how it all works, then when ready you can easily expand to the rest of your Courses.
What it doesn't do
Data Sync will not create any users in Google Workspace
Data Sync will not delete any courses in Google Classroom
Data Sync will not remove any students or teachers that were manually added to the courses
What else you should know
Teachers will need to accept an invitation into all Courses created by Data Sync
Only Courses that have a teacher will be created in Google Classroom
All teachers, including co-teachers enrolled in the Course through your SIS will be added to the Course in Google Classroom.
All Students and Teachers must previously have an existing Google Workspace account in order to be added into any Courses in Google Classroom
All Classroom users are required to have their Email field populated with their Google email.
