Classroom is a free service for schools, non-profits, and anyone with a personal Google account. Classroom makes it easy for learners and instructors to connect—inside and outside of schools. Classroom saves time and paper, and makes it easy to create classes, distribute assignments, communicate, and stay organized.
Classroom is designed to help teachers create, collect, and grade assignments paperlessly, including time-saving features like the ability to automatically make a copy of a Google Document for each student. It also creates Drive folders for each assignment and for each student to help keep everyone organized.
Students can keep track of what’s due on the Assignments page and begin working with just a click.
Teachers can quickly see who has or hasn’t completed the work, and provide direct, real-time feedback and grade the assignments right in Classroom.
With the mobile app, students and teachers can view their classes and communicate with their classmates in real time.
Students can open their assignments and work on them right from their device.
Teachers can keep track of who has turned in work and grade the assignment - at school or on the go.
Students and teachers receive notifications when they have new content in Classroom, so they are always up to date.
