You will be able to create a Google Classroom and anyone with a personal gmail can join, as well as users from a GSuite for Edu domain (assuming the Google Admin for that domain sets permissions to allow it. This also lets people from outside your school Google Domain to join a GSuite for Edu Google Classroom, if allowed by the admin. 

I see this as a great tool for professional development and organizations that don't have a school Google domain, i.e. VT Agency of Edu.
