Learning Management System (LMS) – Google Classroom

Classroom (https://classroom.google.com) makes it easy for learners and instructors to connect—inside and outside of schools. Classroom saves time and paper, and makes it easy to create classes, distribute assignments, communicate, and stay organized.
Follow these steps to create a class:

  1. Open a Web browser and go to classroom.google.com. You have to sign in with your IIU email account.
  2. On the Welcome screen, click the plus sign at the top and choose Create Class.

There are many benefits to using Classroom:
Easy to set up – Teachers can add students directly or share a code with their class to join. It takes just minutes to set up.

Saves time – The simple, paperless assignment workflow allows teachers to create, review and mark assignments quickly, all in one place.

Improves organization – Students can see all of their assignments on an assignments page, and all class materials (e.g., documents, photos, and videos) are automatically filed into folders in Google Drive.

Enhances communication – Classroom allows teachers to send announcements and start class discussions instantly. Students can share resources with each other or provide answers to questions on the stream.
