4- GitHub Classroom: The workflow developers use, whether you have five students or 500
GitHub Classroom

Developers rarely work all by themselves, on a deadline, or ship something they’ll only use once (with no idea whether it actually works). Wouldn’t students be better served by showing versions of their work, iterating, checking in on milestones, and showing off the final product?

With GitHub Classroom you can set up the industry-standard workflow and free up your time to focus on teaching. Classroom will automatically create student repositories, track assignments in your dashboard and integrate with third-party tools like automated testing.

With Classroom, you can spin up your course on GitHub and move on to the good stuff.

Why try Classroom?

Spend more time with students, less on setup.
Students accept an assignment with one link, so you can get straight to the material.

Bootstrap group assignments in a snap.
Invite students to a shared repository, and cap the number of students per group. Use the same groups over and over again, or create new ones.

Download all repositories with the click of a button.
When you're ready to grade, download assignments to your machine from GitHub Classroom, or use GitHub's new desktop client, Classroom Assistant.

Get started with your first GitHub Classroom
