Thanks for Stopping by. Start by taking a look at our Step by Step guide to starting up with Google Classroom.

 

The most common error we've come across is where Google Services (Gmail, Chrome, Play Store) haven't been logged out of first, which can cause a conflict when pupils log in to Classroom. Make sure this is done first, then if problems still persist please contact school. 

Xbox and Playstation

Classroom can be opened on Xbox and Playstation. There isn’t an app that the students can add to their consoles. Instead, they are going to have to use the built-in browsers that come on the two devices. On Xbox, it is Microsoft Edge. On Playstation, it is the “www” browser. Pupils will probably know how to find the browsers on their consoles, but if not, each one has a search function they can access on the home screen.

Once the browser has been opened:

  1. Type in classroom.google.com in the URL bar.
  2. A prompt for a Google account will appear.
  3. Type in your school district email and password – it doesn’t end in google.com and that is ok!
  4. The Classroom home screen will open up.

If students have a keyboard they can plug in, they will have a much easier time of navigation. Otherwise, they will have to use their controllers to click on the classroom tiles, open up assignments and type. You are able to open assignments, interact with video and written instructions and also open attachments like Docs and Slides and type on them. It isn’t easy with a controller, but at least you can access the content.
