Use add-ons in Classroom

This article is for teachers.

You can use add-ons within Classroom to share engaging activities and content with your class. Add-ons can be attached to assignments, quiz assignments, questions, materials, or announcements.

You can choose from any add-ons your admin has installed. You can also install add-ons yourself if your admin has allowlisted the add-on for you to install.

If you're looking to find more add-ons, contact your admin.

My add-on isn’t working. What could be wrong?

If your add-on isn't working, it's possible that a pop-up blocker may have caused the issue. You can report the issue and check with your IT administrator to help investigate it.
