What is Google Classroom?
Classroom is a tool in G Suite for Education that helps teachers create and organise assignments quickly, provide feedback efficiently, and easily communicate with their classes. Classroom helps students organise their work in Google Drive, complete and turn it in, and communicate directly with their teachers and peers.
Create and collect assignments: Classroom weaves together Google Docs, Drive and Gmail to help teachers create and collect assignments paperlessly. They can quickly see who has or hasn't completed the work, and provide direct, real-time feedback to individual students. Improve class communications: Teachers can make announcements, ask questions and comment with students in real time—improving communication inside and outside of class.
Stay organised: Classroom automatically creates Drive folders for each assignment and for each student. Students can easily see what’s due on their Assignments page.
