Managing a Class
Your Home page of Classroom displays tiles of each class you have created. Additionally, you can access your classes from the Classroom Menu icon at the top left of the window, and select the class you wish to manage from the list. You can rename a class, delete a class, and access the folder in Google Drive for a class from each class tile. To make changes to a class, simply click on the name of the class, and follow the instructions below.
When you have created a class, you can choose a theme, which includes the class image and color that is displayed for the class in the stream.
