Other links that feature with it are edchat; a personalized chat room to discuss topics, edtech, GoogleEDU and many more.

They can carry out all the activities except deleting class. That is the only option unavailable to them. It becomes easy as it distributes workload and provides direct feedback. This encourages healthy discussions and helps in brainstorming. Everyone can comment and question without hesitation. It fosters synergy and maintains authentic collaboration of mindset.
