Repl.it Classrooms

A repl.it classroom provides students with the ability to create code and then submit it to their teachers. It also allows teachers to post instructions and set up automatic code checking.

Assignments in a classroom can only be accessed by people enrolled in the course, and student work can only be seen by the instructors.

A repl.it classroom is used for:

  1. Organizing coding tasks,
  2. Completing and submitting practice tasks and assignments,
  3. Providing feedback for working or non-working code.

Tip

You NEVER have to click Save in repl.it. The site automatically stores your code on their servers.

However, you DO have to click Submit to turn in your work from a classroom.
