Google Classroom 101: Joining and Leaving Classrooms

Google Classroom has been an important tool for students and teachers. Google released the Classroom five years back in 2014, aiming to simplify sharing notes, creating groups of students, collecting and grading assignments without using paper. The Classroom helps in streamlining sharing documents between students and teachers.

It comes with different Google services such as Google Drive integration to store the documents, Google Docs, Sheets, Slides for viewing and editing different documents, Gmail for communication, and Google Calendar for scheduling events.

Google Classroom works when a teacher creates a classroom for their subject and shares notes or assigns work in the classroom. A teacher needs to have a G Suite for Education account to create a classroom.

You will have to join various classrooms created by your teachers. Joining a classroom and managing notes and assignments is very easy and the same steps apply for both the smartphone app and if you’re accessing it via the PC. In this article, we discuss how to join or leave a Google Classroom, as well as how to view all your assignments.
