How to Use Google Classroom for Teachers

Google Classroom serves as a bridge to online education. It has made the learning process seamless when schools closed and students had to learn at home. Teachers can use the platform to direct and assess their students remotely using a few clicks only. Here’s how:

Step 1: Create a Google Classroom as a Teacher

You can set up a class where you can allocate tasks and post some notifications to the students. If your school facilitates a Google Workspace for Education account, you employ that email to create your classes. Otherwise, you can start a class using a personal Google Account. 

  1. Go to Google Classroom.
  2. On the top of the Classes page, click the Add + button.
  3. Click on Create class.
  4. Enter the Class name.
  5. Click Section to enter the short description, year level, or class time.
  6. Click Subject and pick the subject name from the dropdown menu.
  7. Click on the Room and enter the needed information to locate the class.
  8. Click Create.

Click Create

This classroom gives you a class code you can use to bring students into the class. At any time the class code is available at the top of the class stream.

Step 2: Copy the Invite Link

Each time you create a class, you are assigned an invitation link. You can send the link to students in advance so that they automatically become part of the class. To share an invite link

  1. Navigate to Google Classroom official website.
  2. On the Class card, select three dots beside the Class code.
  3. Click on Copy class invite link.
    If you don’t see the Copy invite link, be sure you have enabled Invite codes in Settings.

Click Copy Class Invite Link

You can paste the link into any messaging app and send it to students as shown in step 3. Students can click on the link and it will take them to the class.

Step 3: Invite Students with an Email Invite

After creating a class, you can send an email invitation to students individually or as a group. Through the email, they can either accept the invite or click Join this Classroom to enter the class.

To contact a group of students, you can use the email alias of the Google group. If you can’t see group members’ emails ask the administrator to modify the setting.

  1. Go to Google Classroom.
  2. Select the class in which you wish students to join.
  3. On the top, click People and then Invite Students.
  4. Type the email of a student directly or that of a group.
    Upon entering text, an autosuggest list could start appearing under search results.
  5. Pick a student or a group from the search results.
  6. Repeat Steps 4 to 6 to add more students to the class.
  7. Click Invite.

Enter email and click invite

If you encounter an error when adding an email address, it’s likely because the email does not belong to your school’s domain.

How to Post an Assignment in Google Classroom

Google Classroom provides an easy tool for teachers to assign tasks to their students within their digital classroom. As students complete their work and submit it to you, you can mark and give the marked work back to them.

  1. Go to in your browser and select the class.
  2. On the top panel, choose Classroom.
  3. Click + Create and then select Assignment.
  4. Type the Title for the task and add instructions.
