Online Learning was not a part of our academic life until this pandemic. But now it is not only important but the only way to organize classes, post assignments, hosting meetings, etc. online. Wouldn't it be great if you could do all these things in just one location without worrying about any security issues and with better tools and visualization? Fortunately, Google for EDU listened intently to teacher needs and designed by Google Classroom to do just that. Students have a single source of information for assignments, parents can see missing assignments and student progress; educators are more easily able to manage digital assignments and communication.
In today's changing world, students need to leave school with a set of skills that can help them compete in the world's job market. For teachers, there's a free resource available that can help them give students those skills: Google Classroom.
