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.

Pros

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.

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.

Easy to use for most of the functionality. All good tools from Google are easily integrated into a simple and clean platform. Tools such as Calendar, YouTube and Google Drive (Google Docs). Free account and email for Education under the GSuite for Education.

Cons

There is no good gradebook user interface to check out all of the grades and students. Also, the student should go to the email to check the assignment and rest of process. Lack of a gradebook and an Assignment section is really annoying.

Pros

I am a big fan of google products but Classroom has taken the learning process to heights. Paperless learning is what is required today and Google is leaving no stone unturned to achieve that. It is so easy and convenient to use and giving feedback and communicating directly with the team members was never this easy. Absolutely impressed!

Cons

If Google is able to add the feature of having live open discussions, this product will really stand out. I highly recommend this product

So clean and simple to use across all platforms. I've used Blackboard in the past and this is far superior. So refreshing for online students.

I absolutely love the desktop version. The mobile app, not so much. I realize its supposed to be stripped down via mobile, but it's pretty dang basic at that point.
