I like it but...

Overall great for what we can use it for. Because we were told we would have full functionality, and later to find out that only applied to schools, not non-profit religious (which is an education space, but not according to google) we can't use all the pieces and must still use email for a lot of things. I suppose if we were a regular school it would be different.

Pros

It's great to put a classroom together on this platform. We previously used yahoo groups... which is basically asking people to visit a desert island as Yahoo is just about obsolete. Gmail dominates this game in my opinion, but...

Cons

They upsold this platform to the organization that I am going to school in, a spiritual non-profit; and because they are a spiritual non-profit they didn't receive all of the classroom benefits. We lost so much functionality. BE CAREFUL in reading and getting what you want or you may be sold short.

Online Course Easiness!

Pros

- The interface is good and understandable.
- Took hours only to manage its features.
- A paperless learning.

Cons

- The ability to edit the docs by the receiver is not good for me.
- So far, that's all I notice, hope to get a positive feature in the future.

Free elearning platform

Pros

Free for schools therefore minimizing costs for purchasing a Learning Platform
Accessible from multiple types of devices making it really flexible
Can be integrated with other platforms like Moodle

Cons

Cannot be used solely to manage learning, there's a requirement for integrating or using together with other platforms as it does not have all features with complete back to back operations support for a school

Google Classroom is an organized platform for schools

Pros

Google Classroom is a great website provided by Google which allows for both teachers and students to easily access assignments.

Cons

As this is online, it poses a risk of being a victim of hacking. Then, online assignments and other data could be compromised.

Helpful Software

Pros

A very helpful software for an online course.

Google Classroom

Pros

Google classroom has a familiar and intuitive interface, which certainly played a role in widespread adoption by my fellow teachers. This has certainly been a massive upgrade over our previous use of web-based tools, and students seem to be responding as well. I love knowing that my and student's work is saved due to the cloud-based approach. This has revolutionized my classroom management.

Cons

The simplicity here comes at a cost - the gradebook is really not featured enough to be useful for me as a higher-end user (this hasn't necessarily been an issue for others who are new to using tech in the classroom).

Great for teacher and students

Pros

Easy to use if you are familiar with Google. This product is integrating well with other services from the same company. One place organization for students is a plus.

Cons

The assignments are not clear sometimes and it lacks the ability to customize the colors for the menu. Also, it should have more templates in order to create and share the content.

Paperless Course

Pros

I do like the paperless approach of this software. It allows users to attached documents for students to study at home.

Cons

I just notice that not only the sender can edit the documents that he/she sent. Hope to add a security level when it comes to files.

An API with easy access from every device, familiar google inviroment, but not offering as many features as a modern LMS

It can be use for limited interaction , such as feedback to the students or for docs edit and common use. There are LMS giving many more features and modern way of interaction such as Rubricas, quizzes etc, witch are free.

Pros

It is free. A teacher can easily give assess students' work and give feedback. Easy documents sharing through out google docs

Cons

Not always compatible with doc formats. Ηas no possibility of creating pazzles or quizzes. Not offered synchronous meetings or disquissions.

Outside the Class

We use it a little outside of its intended usage. We use it to organize a podcast between the co-hosts (one of whom is a teacher and uses the app as intended) but it has all the organization we need and is always just a click away from our chat on Hangouts.

Pros

The ability to package and share thoughts, notes, links and files into subjects and to share and have chats in this streamlined package is great.

Cons

Not sure if I have missed it but I would like a way to build out notifications for everything, sync with hangouts.

Your online schooling tools available in Google

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.

Great features with a little confusion on how to use

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.

Google Classroom Software Review

Pros

A versatile software for student-teacher communication. You can attach every files and document that was needed for class, truly paperless.

Cons

Just a little concern on refreshing updates, and editing of assignments for example. Admin should be the authorized read/write.
