    I cannot signup to the classroom. It always ends with “This account is not allowed to access this course. Ask the teacher.” Do you have any recommendation? Thanks

      Hi! Most likely you have a corporate Gmail and your IT department has forbidden using it for Google Classroom. Just use a personal Gmail.
