Frequently Asked Questions

  • Well, both.

    The Atlantic District uses a service called 'Google Workspaces.' This service provides students with all the tools needed to participate and interact with your course.

    If you already have a google account, you still need an 'Atlantic District' account and easily switch between the two. Just click your round user icon in the upper-right corner of the window while in your e-mail or classroom and select the account you wish to use.

    If you see the LCMS Atlantic District logo in the upper-right corner, you're using your district account.

  • While Zoom has it's strengths, Google Classroom offers a more organized classroom experience.

    Inside of your classroom, you can access:

    • Class syllabus, materials and announcements
    • The Video Conference Link for your live class sessions
    • A New Class Calendar with class dates and assignment dates
    • Applications like Docs (Word Processor) Slides (Slideshow Editor) Sheets (Spreadsheet Editor) and more for completing assignments

    As with anything, it'll take a bit to get used to, but this system has proven very helpful.
