Share to Classroom - Powerful Google Chrome Extension

"Get your class on the same (web)page, instantly."
Share to Classroom by Google

I typically use a Google Hyperdoc (Google Doc with links.) to get my students to the right online resources during an activity. Sometimes I want to move them quickly to a resource or need to make an adjustment to a lesson. The "Share to Classroom" extension is a powerful tool to save time when I need the students to visit a web page, quickly connect to a drive file, or watch a YouTube video. 

"Share to Classroom" is a Chrome Extension that connects your web browser to Google Classroom. Gone are the days of having every student copy a shortened URL. With just a few clicks, I can make sure every student in my Google Classrooms can quickly access a resource with no messy URLs. 

Key features include:
  • Push web pages from Chrome to Google Classroom.
  • Create assignments in Chrome and post them to Google Classroom.
  • Ask a Question in Chrome for students to respond in Google Classroom. (Newest Update)
  • Make announcements from Chrome that post in Google Classroom. 
  • Students can also push web pages to their teachers if they install the extension. 
  • Quickly access Google Classroom from the extension
