Google Classroom is one of the products offered by G Suite for Education to make virtual learning easier.

The free service makes it easy for teachers to create, distribute, and grade assignments and for students to complete classwork and track their progress. Its central focus is to simplify the sharing of learning materials and facilitate better communication between educators and students. It also happens to be very easy to join a Google Classroom that an instructor creates.

There are three ways to join a Google Classroom: via an email invite, a unique class code, or a class link. This can be done on a desktop computer or tablet, an Android mobile phone, or an iPhone. Here’s how to do it depending on your device.
