Description

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 iPhone or iPad. 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.

Saves time
The simple, paperless assignment workflow allows teachers to create, review, and grade assignments quickly, all in one place.

Improves organization
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.

Enhances communication
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.

Pretty Great!

I️ know there are a lot of people out here who are saying that they hate google classroom and that it’s needlessly advanced, and all I️ have to say is; catch up with the years! This is where technology is now, and if you don’t get it or think it’s overly difficult, then you clearly were not trained or taught this form of technology. I️ think, for those of you who actually understand how this stuff works, it’s a great tool to use in classrooms that makes schoolwork and homework much easier. I️ do practically all my schoolwork on the computer, using google classroom. It’s really a great idea for a simple way to do schoolwork and such. Plus, no matter how much you fight it, this is where society and education is headed anyway. There’s nothing you can do about it, except learn, appreciate, and accept it.

Not the greatest tool for education

Sir Jakesnake 21

Its a way for teachers to make more boring work for their students. All of my teachers in school use this, its horrible. I cant tell you how happy I am when there is an actual test on PAPER. Sometimes google deletes my documents too, or it doesn't save properly. Also, I absolutely HATE google docs and slides, it makes no sense at all, don't even get me started on the formatting issues. The controls are the exact opposite of what you expect them to be. I mean I’m in a whole class where I'm taught to use Microsoft word properly, and then we do all our work on google docs....I guess the drive feature is cool, and the fact that you can share it. But its absolutely USELESS when google docs and slides are so crappy and hard to use with their non-logical controls. If you read this far thank you, but google, will never be as good as Microsoft word.

Google Classroom not parent friendly

Let me start by saying that I am an IT professional with over 29 years experience. I have worked with MS applications in a desktop role, system administrator and most recently as a System Engineer specializing in virtualization. So, I have had ample opportunities to evaluate systems and application for lay and professional people.

My assessment of Google Classroom is that it is a mediocre tool for students and parents. It requires too much movement between multiple screens and displays key information in a very awkward manner. Reports and alerts are very clumsy and I liken it to sifting through trash. I would not recommend it. This app necessarily requires a good tutorial in order for the lay individual to understand it. IT pro's know that delivery of any app for the public MUST be geared toward simplicity first and foremost. This app does not. I would not recommend it.
