A great Chinese proverb says: “Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere”
Google has made sure that learning is a key component of its ecosystem. Whether for students or employees, everyone can keep learning. It has encompassed the accessibility, the teaching and the learning agility all within their learning platform: Google Classroom!
Google Classroom is an education platform from Google that was initially created for schools but ended up solving problems of companies in the midst of their digital transformation. How? By providing solutions for their onboarding process.
You might be wondering: what’s in it for your company?
As businesses move to the hybrid world, the need for a platform where employees can be easily onboarded becomes bigger. This is where Google Classroom comes in handy.
It provides an ecosystem that fulfills the need but also gives employees the hands-on Google experience.
What better way for an employee to be onboarded within the Google ecosystem than by using Google Classroom? They learn to use the Google communication and collaboration tools by the same occasion.
Last but not least, Google Classroom is not limited to onboarding employees with regards to Google Workspace, but also many other topics. Hence the importance of a single unified ecosystem.
What does the experience look like?
Visually speaking, Google Classroom is consistent with the user-friendliness of Google. From the home page to the course room, nothing is out of order.
On the homepage, all the classes your employees are registered for are listed, such as onboarding, technical courses, etc. The content of these classes can be accessed from there.
Classes are divided into three sections:
- Stream: This is where announcements are made, allowing employees to access new material from specific classes.
- Classwork: All the material, content and exams can be found here. This is the core of the classroom where employees can learn the necessary information.
- People: Your employees can see who is attending a class and the teacher’s contact information.
One of the most important aspects of Google Classroom is the creation of the material.
Being able to provide adequate material to employees is key. From a simple question to complex assignments, Classroom covers it all.
Moreover, all the following material can be organized into different topics:
- Quiz assignment
The creation of material is key and this is where Google Classroom is strong: it isn’t time-consuming nor demanding.
When creating material, there are a couple of aspects that are important to define:
- The title of the material created
- Instructions for the material, if any
- Attach documents if necessary
- Classify it accordingly
- Due dates to complete assignments if applicable
