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 organised.
Classroom is designed to help teachers create, collect and mark 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 organised.
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 marks 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 handed in work and mark 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 mark 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.
Like the rest of Google Workspace for Education services, Classroom contains no ads, never uses your content or student data for advertising purposes.

Resubmitting attachment over and over
This app works okay for my daughters schoolwork seeing as we are in lockdown her in Victoria. But ... some of the assignments that have attachments to show her work have been going missing therefore the assignment/task ends up in the missing pile. I thought maybe it’s because my daughter has been skipping the work. To solve the problem I started submitting the attachments for her to complete the assignment. She does the school work I post it for her.. when I had checked if all her assignments have been completed.. some of them have missing attachments for the work that I uploaded for her. So then we have to re upload it ! It’s time consuming and rather very bothersome because the teachers then contact me to say that my daughter hasn’t been doing her assignments. I have to go back and check every assignment done in the last 1-2weeks worth of school work looking for the assignments that say (handed in) but are MISSING ATTACHMENTS FOR SCHOOL WORK. Please fix it and also add a notice or warning sign saying that the work has been handed in with no attachment and compile it into an organised category with DATE and time. So that I don’t have to sift through each and every task done a week or so ago. Thank you that would be nice. I would really appreciate it
As we are in lockdown here in Victoria, we have been using Google Classroom to submit our work and ask for help in the comments. It started out fine, but over time it made my lockdown and remote learning experience absolutely horrendous. Every single day, the teachers hand out work and in turn, we, as students do our work and hand it in! Although for me and a few others as I've read in reviews, I hand in my work as usual. I wake up the next morning to a private comment from my teacher telling me I haven't done any of my work. In shock, I wrote a detailed message explaining that I have finished my work and submitted it on time. All they can see is that my work is missing. It's absolutely horrible. For this, I have received a ND on an exam which stands for not demonstrated as I "had not handed in my work". And it's on permanent record. My teacher cannot change this. When we get out of lockdown, I need to show my teacher ALL of the work I've completed during remote learning as I wasn't able to submit it anywhere. Hopefully this gets fixed because my school thinks that I am a student idling away and not doing the set work.
My review on google classroom
It’s good. I know lots of people are going to hate me after this review. First of all it is the easiest thing to use! For students to submit your work you for e.g your teacher was set a task to do like research on eggs she have give you a doc to do you do it than you submitted it done easy! Even she does not give you a doc just make a new doc than submit it! For teachers. Say you as the teacher wanna make a task about should we ban homework or something. Just click on make a assignment done. Also you can make how much students to do the assignment chose how much points you get. Also you can comment also students can! But teachers you need to look out those students. Because in my google classroom someone was swearing also bullying someone so you need to keep a look out! So that is why google classroom is the best also it’s good for the environment! My review stars 5 stars
