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 iPhone or iPad. 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.

Honestly speaking this app is pretty unreliable and not very convenient. It spams you with multiple notifications for an assignment a few minutes before it's due, 1. How does that help the user, if your only notifying a few minutes before 2. One notification is more than enough. Also after an assignments due date has passed it is no longer shown in the to-do list that appears on the side of each class which makes the to-do list sorta useless because you don't really know what you have to do. Also many times the 'added' docs or drive folders to an assignment have been deleted or blanked out for me many times, or it'll show on my side but not on my teachers. It also doesn't notified me when a teacher has sent me a private message on an assignment and it won't notify my teacher when I answer so it takes a lot of time to communicate with teachers when they tell you ' only use google classroom to communicate with us'. Overall there are a lot of negative aspects to this app that make the learning process just that much harder. I will admit though it does the job you need done but also over complicates the process to an unnecessary degree which is why I feel a 1 Star review is fit for this app.
I really don’t understand all the negative reviews
that this app gets. Nobody has ever complained to me about how the app is poorly functioning. I use this app in class and it really helps me. One of the only things I have a problem with is the way the platform is laid out. Sometimes I have trouble reaching my teachers assignments because the platform isn't laid out the right way and I can’t seem to figure it out. besides that Google classroom creates folders and organized sessions where you can easily get to your assignments. I really liked this app because I thought it was super easy to where it told you missing assignments, assignments that are due the next day or next week, and so on. or my favorite things about this is there is a to do list because it shows you every assignment that you are missing and have completed. I find this very helpful because sometimes I don’t feel like checking every single teacher‘s class and seeing if I have any assignments. I don’t know why people rate this so low. I’ve read a lot of reviews and they say that things are organized incorrectly, the app crashes and freezes a lot, etc. none of this has ever happened to me. anyway, if you’re reading this right now I think this is a great app and I totally recommend it to anyone who is struggling finding apps to keeping assignments organized. have a good day!
ok I know it was a trend to to rate this badly but i’m really saying it here this app is kind of a disaster. I would have to go to sleep early for my online class meetings early the next day. they would send me like 5 notifications to get my assignment which i had already turned in at 12:00 am while I was trying to sleep of course i could’ve just silenced my phone or whatever but I thought I shouldn’t because a teacher would’ve put an assignment early in the morning because that’s how my teachers give assignments. Speaking of the assignments they would never give you a notification for new assignments at least for me. It’s only notifications were for assignments that were due that day/the day of and when teachers would give updates. It was so frustrating seeing over due assignments because they would never give me notifications for new assignments or when a new assignment was due. Also finding assignments in certain folders was a bit messy so that could’ve helped quite a bit. overall i will not suggest using this but I promise you I am not rating this just for the trend these were problems I experienced and if they were fixed I would enjoy the app more.
