Hi, I am trying to figure out how to use GitHub for an advanced programming/software design course. I have a number of questions
- Where is the documentation/tutorial? I like to read about capabilities in an organized way so I am having problems because I can’t find anything. It doesn’t help that when I first log in, Classroom tries to walk me through the process without any explanations, and it doesn’t work - I can’t make it create anything.
- Classroom seems to be more of a Blackboard replacement. I don’t really want that - we use Blackboard and it is fine. I want students to learn the basics of using Git. I don’t really want them to deal with “assignments” - I want them to work with Git in the normal way. Is this possible under Classroom?
- If I don’t use Classroom though, then I think I am stuck with creating a repo per student per assignment, which also sounds bad.
So for those of you teaching programming courses, does Classroom help you create repos? And does it give students access to regular Git or does it put a Blackboardy interface on top?
And WHERE is the documentation???
