How Do I Personalize My Google Classroom Homepage?
Personalize your homepage to make it stand out or reflect your personality and style. Google Classroom will put a random image as your background, but you can change it. You can pick a theme from a menu of choices provided by Google. The themes include the following categories: General, English & History, Math & Science, Arts, Sports, or Other. Each category has several colorful and artistic images to choose from.
To select a theme, go to the homepage of your Classroom, and you will see a colorful rectangular box that lists the class title and class code. In the bottom left corner, it says “Select theme”. Click on it to pull up your options.
Pick out the theme that represents your Class best, and then press “ Select class theme”, located at the bottom right corner. It will automatically update to show your new theme on the home page.
If you do not like any of the theme choices, you also have the option to drag and drop an image or upload it from your computer. You could use a personal photo, a class photo, or an image from the internet. To choose this option, go to the homepage and on the title and class code section, you will see “Upload photo”.
Click on it and this screen will appear:
You can drag a photo and release it, or click on “Select a photo from your computer”. A menu of your files will appear.
Highlight the file you want to use and press “Open”. It will begin loading the image you selected:
After it has loaded, you will be directed to crop it. Press “Select class theme” at the bottom left corner once you have decided how you want to crop the photo. It will automatically upload it to your homepage.
