Video: The Student's Guide to Google Classroom

Updated: Sep 29, 2020

Whelp, we finally managed to create something teachers have been asking us for for a LONG time! A video teaching students how to use Google Classroom from their perspective. Don't forget, this video AND the Parent's Guide to Google Classroom are both available (with a license to share with all of your students AND students' parents) in the Google Classroom in 5 on demand course in our online school here.

I know the video SEEMS long, but, here is a helpful guide below so that you can send students to just the topics they need. PRO-TIP: You can use this url below with the timing you want substituted where my timing (481) to get them to JUST the right spot:

481=8 minutes and 1 second (8x60 seconds in a minute+1=481) OR, if you don't want to do the math, pull up the video, go to the beginning of the section you want students to see, then click the Share button underneath the video. Look for this checkbox to adjust the URL. Copy the modified URL and share away:
