    Students & Staff Webmail Features

    Google Classroom

    Google Classroom is a blended learning platform for schools that aims to simplify creating, distributing and grading assignments in a paperless way. It was introduced as a feature of Google Apps for Education following its public release on August 12, 2014. Google Classroom ties Google's many services together to help educational institutions go to a paperless system. Assignment creation and distribution is accomplished through Google Drive while Gmail is used to provide classroom communication. Students can be invited to classrooms through the institution's database, through a private code that can then be added in the student interface or automatically imported from a School Information Management System. Google Classroom integrates with students' and teachers' Google Calendar.
