Classroom is a free service for schools, non-profit organisations 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 such as 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 directly 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 directly using their iPhone or iPad. Teachers can keep track of who has turned 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, while 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 one another or provide answers to questions on the stream.
Affordable and secure
Like the rest of G Suite for Education services, Classroom contains no ads, never uses your content or student data for advertising purposes, and is free.

Great! but have a request
This app is great! Not had a problem with anything not working and we use it at our school 24/7! At the moment I’m in year 12 and at pretty loaded up with assignments, homework and am studying for exams coming up so I don’t really have much time to check the notifications through my emails and the pop up ones on phone straight away. Eventually I forget what subjects/classrooms have had notifications and don’t end up checking them.
I was wondering if you could add an in app visual that shows what classrooms have been added to by the teachers since the last time you’ve gone into them? It would make it easier to get back on track if I do get behind.
Thanks heaps :)
It is Essential!
My Class Stage 3 ( Years 5&6 ) uses classroom to do all our homework. It is managed by our teachers. When we have completed a task we add the assignment to the set task and mark it as done. Our teacher checks it and marks it as complete. We do this every school week through the year.
It is way easier than taking bunches of paper home and losing some of it. Technology has helped so much for school and we always remember to bring our iPads in each day. We also have a reading log in our school diaries and we write down the books we have read each night and our parents sign it to prove that we have read everyday throughout the week. Everyone individual has their own iPad so we can all use the app. I definitely recommend Classroom to anyone teacher or school.
It has really motivated us to do our homework because it is so fun. When we do Quiz I call my friends and we do it together.
Quiz is really fun because it isn’t like maths or writing it is includes questions about politics, fashion, music, gossip, interesting facts and many things that have come in the news!
Please get Google Classroom it will help you with your home and school work so much!!!!!
An excellent way to organise my classes.
I use this with all my classes (secondary school) and the students find it to be a good way to see and access everything they need, whether that be documents, links, videos, notices, etc. A couple suggestions: 1. Allow the teacher the option to give a letter grade A+ to E- (pluses and minuses too please, not just the letters) instead of a score out of 100; and 2. Make it easier for students to save documents and to upload their work (fewer steps please--it's not an intuitive process at the moment). A terrific app/website though--very efficient mode of delivery.
