๐Ÿ“ The Road to Google Mastery: Merging onto the Google Classroom Expresswayโ€™s Sixth Point of Interest the Settings Section

In part 6 of our All About Google Classroom Series, we are going to be covering the Settings section of Google Classroom and how you can customize your Google Classroom experience!

Class Details Section

In the Class Details section, you can edit the name, section, and room of your class. You can also add a class description. In the general section, you can find your class code. By clicking on the down arrow next to it, you can display, copy, reset, or disable the class code. You would share this with your students so they could join your class. (Depending on your district, you might have the ability to connect Google Classroom with your SIS (Student Information System) to auto create Google Classrooms and enroll students). Here is where you can also set the stream preferences that we spoke about earlier in regards to student interaction with items on the stream.

General Section

In the general section, you can also adjust how you want classwork to be displayed, if at all, on the stream. Here you can also enable or disable Guardian summaries. Guardian summaries include missing work, upcoming work, and class activity such ass announcements, assignments, and questions posted by the teacher. Guardians have the option of receiving daily or weekly summaries. Here is a link to an example of a guardian summary.

A new addition to the general section is Google Meet. Google Classroom now supports Google Meet which means you can have your own Google Meet link that is specific to your Google Classroom. Click here for some more information about Google Meetโ€™s integration into Google Classroom. You will see a toggle to make your classroomโ€™s unique Google Meet link visible to the students or not. By enabling this, your classroomโ€™s Google Meet link will be displayed on the top of your classroom header.

Grades Section

Finally, you will see the grades section. Here you can adjust the grade calculation and add grade categories.

That does it for the Settings Section of Google Classroom. In our next and final post, we will be diving into some Google Classroom tips and tricks!
