How to find your Google Classroom code on the desktop website or mobile app, so you can share it with your students

With more and more learning happening online, many educators are using Google Classroom to create virtual spaces in which to share and grade assignments, create discussions between students and teachers, and allow students to track their progress. You can invite students to join your classroom at any time and in multiple ways, but one of the simplest is simply by sharing the classroom code. 

A Google Classroom code is a unique series of letters and numbers that identifies a particular course. By entering this code into the Google Classroom website or app, a student can enroll themself in the course with ease.
