Pros

A very helpful software for an online course.

Adding some helpful feature will make this software improve. But there is always a room for improvement and will surely wait for that.

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).

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
