Posted by Vance Vagell, User Experience Prototyper In every classroom around the world, teachers spend time decorating their rooms by tacking up fun decorations and outstanding student work.
Starting today, teachers can bring those same personal touches to Classroom by uploading their own images to use as themes. That’s just one of the little surprises we’ve sprinkled throughout Classroom to brighten your winter (or sweeten your summer, for our Southern Hemisphere friends). If you have an image you’d like to use as your theme, Classroom will help you crop it to the perfect dimensions, and automatically pick a matching class color. And in case you don’t have a great photo to use, we’re adding 18 new images and 30 pattern themes to our gallery, so teachers have lots of options to make their classes look great.

Google is making it easier for U.S. artists to sell their music on the Google Play artist hub by offering free sign-up for a limited time.
The Google Play artist hub is where musicians can create a Google Play store page, set the price on their music and sell direct to users. Artists get 70% of revenue and Google gets 30%. Google charges $25 for artists to sign-up for the artist hub but thanks to the fan management platform FanBridge, the sign-up fee will be waived for one week. Existing FanBridge customers will also be able to easily create and manage their own presence on Google Play. The free offer is only available to artist’s in the United States and will run from March 27 – April 3.
