In addition to the Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Calendar and Google Drive applications which can be accessed online through personal Google accounts, Google Apps for Education includes Google Sites — the elegantly simple website design app, along with the innovative Google Classroom tools,
Google Classroom was created to give teachers more time to teach and students more time to learn, allowing you to:

  • Create and collect assignments — Classroom weaves together Google Docs, Drive and Gmail to help teachers create and collect assignments paperlessly. They can quickly see who has or hasn’t completed the work, and provide direct, real-time feedback to individual students.
  • Improve class communications — Teachers can make announcements, ask questions and comment with students in real time, improving communication inside and outside of class.
  • Stay organised — Classroom automatically creates Drive folders for each assignment and for each student. Students can easily see what’s due on their Assignments page.
