Classroom is a free service for schools, non-profits, and anyone with a personal Google account. Classroom makes it easy for learners and instructors to connect—inside and outside of schools. Classroom saves time and paper, and makes it easy to create classes, distribute assignments, communicate, and stay organized.
Classroom is designed to help teachers create, collect, and grade assignments paperlessly, including time-saving features like the ability to automatically make a copy of a Google Document for each student. It also creates Drive folders for each assignment and for each student to help keep everyone organized.
Students can keep track of what’s due on the Assignments page and begin working with just a click. Teachers can quickly see who has or hasn't completed the work, and provide direct, real-time feedback and grades right in Classroom.
With the mobile app for iOS, students and teachers can view their classes and communicate with their classmates in real time. Students can open their assignments and work on them right from their phone or tablet. Teachers can keep track of who has turned in work and grade the assignment - at school or on the go. Students and teachers receive notifications when they have new content in Classroom, so they are always up to date.
There are many benefits of using Classroom:
Easy to set up
Teachers can add students directly or share a code with their class to join. It takes just minutes to set up.
The simple, paperless assignment workflow allows teachers to create, review, and grade assignments quickly, all in one place.
Students can see all of their assignments on an assignments page, and all class materials (e.g., documents, photos, and videos) are automatically filed into folders in Google Drive.
Classroom allows teachers to send announcements and start class discussions instantly. Students can share resources with each other or provide answers to questions on the stream.
Affordable and secure
Like the rest of G Suite for Education services, Classroom contains no ads, never uses your content or student data for advertising purposes, and is free.
Camera: Needed to allow the user to take photos or videos and post them to Classroom.
Microphone: Needed to enable audio capture for recording videos to be posted to Classroom.

What's New in Version 2.2017.10204
* Available to users with personal Google accounts
* Improved performance on annotations touch recognition
* Bug fixes and performance improvements
This app is brilliant! Easy to use, helpful, and makes my life as a student so much easier! Using technology to our advantage is a great way to learn, but my teachers only let us start using devices since we had this platform to share our work, answer each other's questions instead of constantly annoying our professors, answer questions for our teachers as class openers, turn in assignments and have them graded, and more. I only have two complaints: sometimes it glitches and there are problems, and sometimes it's extremely slow to open and load. But I absolutely recommend this app for any teachers questioning whether or not they should use this in their classes; trust me, it's worth it!
Easy to review and grade
I have used the app to check assignments turned in by my middle schoolers and give feedback and grades. I love that I can write a note or make suggestions and it will save it as a .pdf.
I may invest in a stylus to make writing my annotations on the touch screen of my device and make written corrections easier since my writing with my finger looks pretty sloppy.
I use this app for school purposes, and it has been doing great so far, but my brother used the app on my device to check on his own classrooms through his own account, but when I went to my account, it showed me his classes, please fix this.
