There are two ways you can log in – via your google email account, or direct to Google Classroom.[/sm_column_text][sm_section_header title=”Logging in via GMail”]

[sm_column_text]Open Gmail in your browser. If you can use Chrome, this works best. Sign into your York Learning gmail account using the account name and password you’ve been sent. You will be asked to set a new password.[/sm_column_text]
