In order to start using Google Classrooms, you’ll need to sign in or create an account if you don’t have one. Creating an account is easy. All you need is either your G Suite, Gmail, or education email. If you’re not sure what that is, it’s the one that your school typically assigns you for educational purposes and typically looks like firstname.lastname@example.org If you’re not sure if you have an account like this, contact your school to ask.
If your school provided specific instructions for how to log in, then it’s best to follow those.
Thankfully, the sign-in process is straightforward. No one likes being confused even before accessing their assignments. Simply go to Classroom.Google.com and select Go to Classroom. Then you’ll sign in with your Google account. You should receive a message that welcomes you to the platform. If you signed in using G Suite, you’ll see the options “I’m a student” and “I’m a teacher.” Students should always select the “I’m a student” option. Unfortunately, pretending to be a teacher isn’t going to help your grades.
When you’re done choosing the correct role, you should see a green Get Started button. Once you click this option, you’re now enrolled in Google Classrooms. Welcome to online learning. Now it’s time to look at some basic tips for using Google Classrooms as a student.
