Change class theme and display your profile photo

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.

To change the theme from the default:

  1. Open the class and click Change class theme in the lower-right corner of the image.
  2. Select an image from the gallery and click the Select class theme button.

Note: At this time, only the teacher of a class can change the class theme.

You can also display a profile photo next to your name in both the class stream and on the class card on the home screen. Classroom uses your Gmail picture as your Classroom profile photo. Check out Selecting your Gmail picture for instructions on adding a photo.

Rename or Archive a class
The following document will guide you through deleting students and archiving your Classroom. Archived Classrooms allow you to reuse any posts next school year. If you choose to archive a class without deleting students, students will retain access to their assignments. This document is great to follow at the end of the school year or when you are starting to create you classrooms for the new school year.
