Google Tools have been firmly embraced by many educational institutions because of their ability to foster collaboration and efficiency. Google Workspaces (formerly “GSuite”) is perhaps the most familiar range of offerings, including Google Docs, Slides, Forms, and Sheets. One of the newest layers to the family of Google Tools is Google Classroom. This Learning Ecosystem allows teachers to seamlessly leverage Google’s communication features as well as some new organizational tools. Google Classroom is built on the Google Workspaces foundation, so it is recommended that you feel comfortable using the Google Workspaces or are willing to spend additional time learning these tools throughout the course.

Assginmenrs were reasonable and realistic. I went into the 2020-2021 school year knowing how to actually use google classroom.
In the current age of distance learning, this course was what I needed to learn how to use GC as my LMS. I had never really used it before and we are using it daily now for direct instruction with our students.
Just a terrific course. Informative, engaging, and in a time of COVID it *matters* that extensions were granted, even over the course of a year. I’m grateful for this experience. Thank you.
