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.

Saves time
The simple, paperless assignment workflow allows teachers to create, review and mark assignments quickly, all in one place.

Improves organisation
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.

Enhances communication
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.

Permissions notice:
Camera: Needed to allow the user to take photos or videos and post them to Classroom.

A problem that almost every student is facing on this app

Google classroom is a creative and a very good platform for students and teachers to take tests and to submit assignments but there is a very big issue in this app that is when I submit a assignment it takes too much time to upload the picture and when I go back to home screen without closing the app from recents the app refreshes and everything written in it gets removed. Today , I had a test in which I completed my test but when I wanted to upload the pictures it was almost 10 minutes before the submission time but when I started to upload pictures it took me half an hour to upload almost 6 pictures and i was not able to send the test answers on time . I am very unpleased for this issue please solve it as soon as possible.

This app is great but there are some issues..

This app is wonderful and it was very useful during the lockdown when we could not go to school. It functions well but it has some issues that need to be fixed.

Late Notifications: Our teachers post our Class Tests on this app and we have to solve and submit the PDF in a limited period of time. I have noticed that the notification comes 5-6 minutes after the assignment/test is posted which is really inconvenient because we start our tests late and have to rush.

Slow: When I open the app, it takes a lot of time to open and that is really annoying. When I attach the PDF, most of the time, it doesn’t show till I have rebooted the app at least 3 times and that is super inconvenient for students. When our teachers give us any study material or assignment, it takes time to load.

Crashes a lot: This app crashes a lot and it is really irritating. The thing is both Google Classroom and Google Meet crash often and that annoys both teachers and students.

Kindly address to these problems.

Why is it slow?

This app is good for study and all but, for assignment after you upload your attachment why does it take so much time to show it (like after attachment is completely uploaded it takes 10-20 more seconds to show it there in the list) And, then when I click on ‘Hand in’ then also it takes about 10 seconds just to Hand in the document which is already uploaded... Just why??? It feels as if you are having a bitcoin miner or something which is making it slow (I know there isn’t anything like that actually but it feels like that). And it’s not a problem with my phone for sure...
