How Classroom Works
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 organised 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.
