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.

Needs same options between web & app
So far, so good. I'm using this with a homeschool co-op group to assign work between meetings. I love the ability to have the students upload their work so that I can grade it before we meet again. Class time is used more efficiently by only reviewing what wasn't understood.
My only complaints are that the app doesn't have a "to do" option in the menu like the web access. I also cannot change the point value on the app when grading.
Google classroom is where I share out and collect my classwork, and I love it, but there are a few needed improvements, especially where grading is concerned. Creating a new sheet each time rather than automatically linking and updating the grades as they are updated in the clsssroom is one suggestion. Allowing for rubric grading and adding scoring links in the student docs is another. Overall however I am a fan
I was hesitant at first to make a transition to google classroom from another website I was using. The transition has been easy so far and I believe this product will be a great addition to my regular classroom curriculum!
