Gaggle announced today the release of an add-on to its  Safety Management for G Suite solution and support for the Canvas learning management system.

School districts that use G Suite for Education from Google now can safely allow their students to use Hangouts. Gaggle’s algorithms reveal potentially harmful content in Hangouts Chat, and trained professionals evaluate suspicious content, alerting school officials of unsafe situations even contacting local law enforcement when time is of the essence.

Students can safely use Hangouts for project collaboration, live class discussions, peer mentoring, virtual office hours, foreign language practice and online study groups. Also, Google Hangouts provides a way for coaches and teachers to direct message their players and students, eliminating the need to share personal phone numbers.

In addition to announcing support for Google Hangouts Chat, Gaggle now offers Safety Management for the Canvas learning management system (LMS). Safety Management for Canvas supports Conversations, Discussions, Files and Pages.
