    Pros

    I use it when i conduct trainings of agents and English Instructors. It is very easy to use and you can share files easily. Each class has its unique id and students can access the class and agenda just by typing the class id when they log in. You can interact with students through the messaging feature. They can access all books and lessons which can be uploaded and downloaded which is helpful instead of send them per student. If there is an update and reminders, no need to inform each, all students an view this in Google Classroom.

    Cons

    I was hoping i can interact with them more by hearing their voice and inputs too but i need to use another platform for that.

    Pros

    Google classroom is consistently on the innovating edge of collaborative learning. It makes connecting students to teachers relatively simple.

    Cons

    Learning to use the functions presents a bit of a challenge as it is not quite as intuitive as google's other products. For example, when assigning an assignment, it is a bit confusing to find responses from a google sheet assigned to multiple people.

    Has some great features for turning in papers online especially for highlighting mistakes and pointing out areas that need improvement.

    Cons

    The grade input screen needs to be updated for some reason it does not allow the teacher to do a mass input for a homework assignment. Each grade must be individually typed in. Talk about a time waster.

    Pros

    What I like best about Google Classroom is firstly the ease with which you can create a meeting room in order to communicate with a certain group of people, it is something that favors an audience exponentially. The organization of Classroom generates controversy, since it gives confidence to the user.

    Cons

    I think that in this platform it is necessary to improve some things, such as the bandwidth that consumes a group session, and the difficulty that is presented when trying to create a Classrooom in mobile devices, is something complex and many people fail to do it.

    Pros

    Since I experimented with Google Clasroom I realized that it is a multifunctional platform, where you can do live classes, and at the same time make forms that help understanding the class, it is a very varied platform that gives a lot to talk about.

    Cons

    I would like Google Clasroom to be more organized, since in many occasions the functions that it has, you have to look for them too much, and you lose a lot of time, I would like the most important ones to focus on the main page of the platform.

    I use my sons log into to check on his grades at school. Google class room makes it easy to see what he is missing and what was turned in. Missing work seems to be a common problem for him and Google classroom makes it easy to keep track of this.

    Cons

    I am unable to see the work itself. Right now very little completed work comes home, it would be great if I could see what he actually did.

    Google Classroom is one of the easiest setups I have seen on the market. Teachers can setup their class, then invite the students and send out/receive content in real time. It seamlessly works with Google Apps like Docs and Drive. IT IS FREE!

    Changing any nomenclature in Drive related to Google Classroom can have a sever impact for students.

    It is much better than traditional school portals. But , for students who aren't familiar with the other google apps, it can take a while to get comfortable with it.

    Pros

    In comparison to traditional school portals, you can quickly send out completed assignments and receive new ones. You can also communicate with announcements. If you are familiar with google apps then you should be able to move through this program with relative ease.

    Cons

    If you don't already use google docs and google drive, it may take a while to become comfortable with navigating and moving documents about. You have to convert word docs to google docs to be able to get them into the program. To enter the classroom you aren't using your google "profile," you have separate log in information.
