How Google Classroom can help you manage coursework from a distance

3 April 2020

In times when you can’t be in a classroom at school together with your students, you have to look for alternatives. Google Classroom can help you out here. It’s an easy-to-use tool that helps teachers manage coursework. It’s created together with educators.


What is Google Classroom 

Google Classroom is developed to save you time, to keep everything organized and to communicate with students. You are grouped together with your students in a digital classroom. In this classroom students can find and make their assignments. You can grade their work and provide feedback. All digitally. 


What can I use Google Classroom for

  • Assign and grade coursework securely
  • Reuse assignments you created earlier
  • Post, comment, and facilitate classroom discussions
  • Keep materials and resources organized in the Classwork page
  • Give better feedback faster
  • Manage and view guardians, students, and co-teachers on the People page


Keep it organized

The way that you distribute assignments saves you time, because it makes a copy of your document for every student. It also prevents organizational chaos, because students don’t have to email you their finished assignments. They hand it in with the turn-in button at the top and it will appear in one folder in your Google Drive.


Easy to give feedback 

As your students are working in their Google Documents a teacher can just open the Doc and give remarks while they are still in progress. When grading the final result you have access to a comment bank, created from comments you gave earlier. Another timesaver!
