My own experience with Google Classroom

Google Classroom helped me immensely to stay more organized.  All class materials are in one place.  Google creates a folder for each assignment and all submitted assignments are automatically placed in this folder to ease marking.  I can reuse assignments, tests and announcements to quickly recreate a course.  Create a test and use the Flubaroo add-on to mark it for you.  Finally, the site just looks good, the layout is appealing.  You can change the theme to suite your class.  It is professional while at the same time inviting to students.  Try it for yourself to take advantage of all of all these amazing features in your classroom.

Google Classroom – Deleting a Class

download

I had a question… “How do I delete a class from Google Classroom?”

The main thing to understand is that you can’t delete a class until you archive it.

At the end of a semester of the school year, you may want to archive a class to preserve the class materials, assignments and any postings in the class stream. When you archive a class, you no longer see it among your other classes. It is moved to a separate area.
