How do I start using Google Classroom?

Updated

Faculty who would like to use Google Classroom must create a support ticket at support.cia.edu.  Any other request will not be recognized.

We only recommend using Google Classroom for faculty who are comfortable performing some administrative tasks on the system.

If you choose to use Google Classroom, you will need to keep the following points in mind:

  • Once you have access to Google Classroom, you will need to create your own Google Classes.
  • Faculty will need to manually manage course enrollments.
  • Faculty will need to post the link to the Google Site in the course site located on myCIA (this allows students to visit a central place to access their courses).
  • Faculty will need to also post the syllabus in the course site located on myCIA.
  • Faculty will need to post grades in the course site located on myCIA.
  • Course data from prior courses on myCIA will not automatically be transferred to Google Classroom.

Access to Google Classroom

Go to classroom.google.com

Log in with your CIA account information

Which account is logged in?

If you need to check and/or change the logged in account

  1. Select the top right corner icon
  2. Sign out (to avoid confusion)
  3. Select 'Use another account'  and login as usual.
  1. Enter your CIA email Address
  2. Select 'Next'
  3. Enter your CIA email Address
  4. Select 'Continue'
  5. Enter your CIA password

Getting Started with Google Classroom

  1. You are logged into Google Classroom
  2. Verify your CIA account is listed
  3. Select 'Continue'
  4. Select 'I'm a teacher'

If you see 'Join first class!' you don't have teacher access yet.

Open a support ticket at support.cia.edu.  or follow up on your support ticket email (from [email protected])

A CIA Google Admin will need to verify your account. You will receive an email after it has been verified.

If you see 'Create or join your first class!' then you are good to go.

Remember:

  • Once you have access to Google Classroom, you will need to create your own Google Classes.
