Saturday Suite Tip: Sharing with Classroom

Saturday GSuite Tip

If you're a Google Classroom user you already know how easy it is to share documents with your students. How about sharing sites and getting them all on the same page at the same time? Check out the Share to Classroom extension to do just that...

Share to Classroom

Share to Classroom is a Google Chrome Extension that makes it easy to get your students onto the same website as you at the click of a button.  

It's as simple as it sounds..

Goto the website you want your class to be on
Click the 'share to classroom' extension
Share it to the classroom your students are part of
They'll get a notification to say their teacher is sending them to a site and all the need to do is hit yes and they're there.

What is an extension?

An extension is a little add on for your Chrome web browser that extends its capability.  Sort of like apps there's an extension for pretty much everything you can think of from creating QR codes to blocking ads or creating GIFs and Screen casting.  There are plenty of them to chose from.  

Extensions are really easy to install.  Just make sure you're signed into Chrome, check out this help file if you're unsure how to do that -How to sign into Chrome
