Google Classroom - what to do with the About page

When you click on the About page in Google Classroom, it initially appears very boring.  But there's more to it than simply adding a description about your class.  There's a link to your shared classroom folder, the Classroom Google Calendar and also a place for your to Add your own resources.  The resources section is the portion that may be most underutilized but incredibly useful if organized thoughtfully.  I like to use it to post links to the following:

  • online textbook
  • class Quizlet site
  • shared folder for copies of class notes
  • class blog
  • class syllabus and templates for common assignment structure (ex. lab reports)
