How to use Google Classroom in your course
Google Classroom is free and works on laptops, tablets and mobile. You don't need any other app or software (such as Microsoft Office). Everything simply works online.
To use Google Classroom you need a Gmail address and its password. Don't worry if you don't have a Gmail address - you can easily create one when you first visit your Class. Remember your password!
Most courses, both online and face to face, have a Classroom. Even if you don't use them in your session, you will find all your course resources there, so you can work with them at home.
For online sessions, a 2 hour online video session uses about 3Gb data.
After you have enrolled
After you have enrolled on your course on the Adult Learning website, look out for your email confirmation and reminders before it starts. These contain one simple link to join your Classroom. For online courses, you will find a link to the Video 'Meet' conversation on Classroom when you get there

You can download them free from Google Play/iStore
