Setting Up Free eMail Groups for Class

The easiest online service for creating email groups is GoogleGroups. One of the great things about GoogleGroups is that it allows you to add your students as members of your group without needing your students to do anything (such as login or sign up or whatever!)

On the other hand, you - as the person creating the group - will need to first create a google ID. Google has set up a brief tour of GoogleGroups that will give you an overview of how you can use it! If you still want to know more, they also have an About Googlegroups page that should answer most of your questions!


  1. Open GoogleGroups in a new window.
  2. When the GoogleGroups page is displayed, click on Join!
