Intro to Google Classroom by Google
Classroom is part of Google Apps for Education, a free suite of productivity tools that includes email, documents and storage. More than 30 million students, teachers, and administrators in schools around the world use Google Apps for Education. Classroom makes it easier to use Google Apps – like Docs and Drive – giving teachers more time to teach and students more time to learn.
How Classroom Works
Classroom was designed hand-in-hand with teachers to help them save time, keep classes organized, and improve communication with students. Classroom lets teachers create assignments, make announcements, and start class discussion.
Simplified assignment process:
With Classroom, creating assignments in Google Apps for Education is much easier. You can attach a Document from Google Drive, share YouTube videos, or send website links. Set a due date for each individual assignment. After you press “Assign,” Classroom works in the background to automatically file all assignments and class materials into folders organized in Google Drive.
Class announcements & discussion:
Communicate directly with your students in the real-time activity stream. Teachers can pose a question at the beginning of class, post videos for the students to watch, or share anything else important to the class.
