Customize Your Google Classroom!

Wow. So much has changed in the course of just a few short weeks. Like most of you, I'm now trying to figure out how to teach my class remotely. Fortunately, I am beginning Spring Break right now so I have some time to work on it.

Like many people, when I have too much time on my hands, I tend to want to play and not work. I decided to make an effort to be somewhat productive and began to organize my Google Classroom.  While doing that, I thought it would be fun to create my own Google Classroom header images.  This caused me to have to research images sizes, converting pixels to inches, and playing around in PowerPoint. I love to create things in PowerPoint since I can use any fonts that I want, unlike Google where I'm restricted to using just Google fonts. (Google has many great font options, I just like to be different!).

I had a lot of fun creating a set of Google Classroom header images and I thought I'd share them with you!  It's just a little thing, but sometimes the little things keep you smiling, right?

My only frustration with creating Google Classroom header images is that the classroom header box has a gray transparent overlay so that the class title, class code, and select theme/photo upload links stand out. I'm still happy using my pretty images rather than the generic Google options.

I even created a mini-tutorial video to show you how to easily customize your Google Classroom header.

Let me know in the comments if you would like to learn how to create your OWN Google Classroom headers and I'll create another tutorial!

Stay safe and stay healthy!

  6. How do we resize the image? I love these and was so excited to use them!! However, when I go to upload it, Google Classroom says its too small, it needs to be 800 x 200 and the image ai have is 720 x 181...SO CLOSE! : (
