Google Classroom is a service that simplifies creating, distributing and grading assessments. Using this tool helps keep learners organised and gives users the ability to create and customise assignment materials.
Classroom is part of Google’s G Suite for Education and offers access to a wide range of online apps and tools.
Students are members of the Classroom along with their teacher(s). Teachers can manage the Classroom to share content with students, issue and mark assignments, post important announcements. Students can contact their teacher(s), access their class stream to engage in collaboration and discussion and submit assignments.
