Pamela Alaniz's curator insight, May 13, 5:59 PM
Since I have not personally worked with Google Classroom this article is of great convenience to me as I will soon have to learn how to use and reuse assignments posted to classes on my Google classroom app. Now since deleting classes is irreversible it is scary to think you might do something wrong and you have no way of going back. This article provides you with step-by-step instructions as well as screenshots of what you are supposed to carry out in order to delete a classroom. The author of this article also created a add-on for google classroom where you can delete classes easier and much quicker which will be of great help, all while keeping one class where you store all your assignments to just go back to reuse when needed, Very informative article when I become familiar with Google classroom.
