If you wish to manage people and their documents in Google, Classroom is the perfect tool! Setting up a new class is quick and easy.
The first thing you will need to do is navigate to Classroom. While there are variety of ways to do this, I find that the easiest is to simply type in the direct URL:
Once you are there, just click the star inside the Omnibox (in Chrome) to bookmark it. This will make getting there quick and easy in the future.
If you are new to Classroom, you will need to indicate how you will be using the product; if you are reading these instructions, then most likely you will select "Teacher." This setting will allow you to join and create classes. If you will be using this with your students (actual children, and not teachers who will be in your class as students), it is important that they select "Student" here. If you accidentally select the wrong role, simply send an email to your Google Administrator, and they can easily reset it for you.
Once you have indicated your intentions as a user, you are now ready to begin setting up your Classroom "environments." This is as easy as clicking on the + symbol in the upper right-hand corner of the page.
You are now ready to begin posting and sharing!
