Before you get started creating classes, you'll need to know how to sign in. There are three types of accounts you can use to access Google Classroom. The account type affects which options are available in Classroom.
School Account: Also called a G Suite for Education account, this type of account is set up by a school’s IT department at an accredited school (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org). The school will have a Google Classroom administrator who controls some settings at a school-wide level. This is the only account type that allows sending guardian emails.
Personal Account: Set up by you for personal use (e.g. email@example.com). These accounts are typically set up outside of a school or business setting. Homeschool teachers often use a personal account to sign in to Classroom.
G Suite Account: Set up by an organization’s Google account administrator (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org). These accounts are used in business or other non-accredited organizations.
