Intro to Google Classroom
This blog is a quick intro to Google Classroom ad how we will use that framework to manage our training.
The goal is to have a platform that allow coaches and mentors to create classes and learning modules in a way that students can accomplish by themselves.
To use Google classroom, you must have a Gmail account.
Google Classroom can be use on your regular PC via the browser (we recommend Chrome) or by installing the app on you mobile device.
Once the app is installed, simply open and log in using your Google account.
There is 2 ways to join a classroom:
- Click on the + sign and enter the provided class code.
- You will receive an email with a “Join Classroom” link that will allow you to join a classroom.
Once a classroom is added to your profile, you will see it on the app.
To “enter” a classroom, click on the classroom block. You will then see the classroom content.
The main classroom content is called the “Stream”. Within the stream you will find many “learning module” or assignment to be completed.
Each learning module or assignment will show it’s status. You can quickly see if you are done with a learning module or not.
If you click on the assignment title, it will open the assignment on its own page. Most learning module or assignment will have a small instruction on what to do to get the learning module completed.
You will also see links and other resources such as YouTube videos and/or Google documents to review and sometimes quizzes to complete each assignments.
When you are done with an assignment, you can turn in material or create a new google docs wih whatever the assignment is asking you to do. In some instance, it could be to write an essay or turn a small research. Use the tool as directed and then click on “Mark as Done”.
