How to create and use a Google group in your High School classroom


Sometimes you want to send an email to a group of students for them to be able to communicate with one another. Google Groups provide a really convenient way to create online groups and email distribution lists.  This is a great way for a High School class or a Higher Education class to communicate.

Depending on the group settings, you can send a message to all members using a single email address, create a question and answer forum or post a message to the group via a web interface.  After this you and the others in your group can post messages to one another, upload files for review and collaborate on a a document etc. All your discussions can be seen by everyone in the group.
