Benefits

Easy setup—Teachers can set up a class, invite students and co-teachers. In the class stream, they then share information—assignments, announcements, and questions.

Saves time and paper—Teachers can create classes, distribute assignments, communicate, and stay organized, all in one place.

Better organization—Students can see assignments on the To-do page, in the class stream, or on the class calendar. All class materials are automatically filed into Google Drive folders.

Enhanced communication and feedback—Teachers can create assignments, send announcements, and instantly start class discussions. Students can share resources with each other and interact in the class stream or by email. Teachers can also quickly see who has or hasn't completed the work, and give direct, real-time feedback and grades.

Works with apps you use—Classroom works with Google Docs, Calendar, Gmail, Drive, and Forms.

Affordable and secure—Classroom is free. Classroom contains no ads, never uses your content or student data for advertising purposes.
