Virtual Teaching Best Practices: Dedicated Question Space in Google Classroom

A best practice in many online courses is to have a dedicated space for students to ask questions and receive responses. It may be helpful to have a discussion question designed for students to ask your questions and where you can provide feedback. Often if one student is confused, there are often other students with similar questions. This dedicated question space can also benefit students who are too shy to ask, because they are able to see your responses to other students. 

Want to see how to do this? Check out my brief tutorial video below:


  1. I love this idea. However, doesn't the Ask a Question feature also get pushed down as new assignments are created? Just wondering. They really need to come up with an area that can be pinned to the top.

  2. I like using google forms in my google classroom, however, I don't feel I can have effective back and forth with the student so they can see my comments and make corrections. They do not have email addresses. Is there another way to accomplish this?
