Introducing Classroom, coming in August
Classroom was designed hand-in-hand with Google Apps for Education teachers to help them save time, keep classes organized, and improve communication with students.
More teaching, less tech-ing
Classroom will be part of Google Apps for Education, a free suite of productivity tools including Gmail, Docs, Sheets.
Classroom is designed to help teachers create and collect 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 grades right in Classroom.
Benefits for classes
Easy to set up Teachers can add students directly or share a code with their class to join. It takes just minutes to set up.
Saves time The simple, paperless assignment workflow allows teachers to create, review, and grade assignments quickly, all in one place.
Improves organization Students can see all of their assignments on an assignments page, and all class materials are automatically filed into folders in Google Drive.
Enhances communication Classroom allows teachers to send announcements and start class discussions instantly. Since students can post to the stream, they can help out their classmates.
Affordable and secure Like the rest of our Google Apps for Education services, Classroom contains no ads, never uses your content or student data for advertising purposes, and is free for schools.
Get started with Classroom
Teachers and professors can apply for a preview of Classroom. Based on the requests we receive we’ll be inviting a limited number of educators to try it.
In August, Classroom will be available to any school using Google Apps for Education. If your school doesn't yet have Google Apps for Education, your IT administrator can sign up here.
We want to make sure Classroom plays well with others. If you're a developer or partner, sign up to learn more about integrating with Classroom.
