Google Classroom is part of the free Google Apps for Education product suite, and is designed to "help teachers create and collect assignments paperlessly." It automatically integrates with your Google Drive to help manage and organize student assignments. When assignments are created, Classroom automatically makes a copy of a Google Document for each student to work on and hand in. Multiple teachers can be added to a class which helps you and your co-teacher manage assignments without worrying about sharing each document with the other. Teachers can also provide feedback directly on the students' work.
