Google Classroom is the new learning management system (LMS) by Google, and is free for all Google Apps for Education users. Google hopes Classroom will be a game changer for educators and students alike. Here Garrick Chow gives you a first look at this new LMS, and shows you how to create a course, add students, and send assignments inside of Google Classroom. Plus, get a look at the class from your students' perspective.
Hi, I'm Lynda.com author Garrick Chow and welcome to Google Classroom first look. In this brief course, I'll be taking you on a tour of Google's new learning management system for teachers who are interested in creating an online classroom environment. I'll start with an overview of what classroom is and who it's for. I'll show you how to create a new class and invite students to enroll in it. We'll see how to create assignments, including how to attach or provide links to related resources and documents, and we'll also look at the classroom from the student's perspective to see how they'll be able to interact with you and their classmates, download course materials, and submit their assignments, which you can then grade online.
So, let's jump into Google Classroom first look.
