Classroom for GitHub is available now, making it easier than ever to teach with GitHub.
Thousands of teachers use GitHub in their courses every day. They distribute starter repositories, give feedback on pull requests, and collect assignments. In addition to helping teachers provide a better learning experience, teaching with GitHub gives students early exposure to software development best practices like version control, issue tracking, and code review.
Classroom for GitHub makes typically tedious administrative tasks (like creating repositories and managing access for large courses) simple and streamlined.
Classroom for Github automates repository creation and access control, making it easy for teachers to distribute starter code and collect assignments from students.
Assignments are the core of Classroom for GitHub. Teachers can easily create an assignment and distribute it to students using a private invitation URL. Optional starter code can be provided for individual or group work. It’s even possible to delegate assignment creation and management to co-teachers and teaching assistants by adding them as organization administrators.
