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.

I’m a student, so I was required to download this app for school purposes, and it glitches so much. Every single time it updates they say that they’re making it “better,” but really, it just messes up all my classes. It has deleted my classes before, and because I need to be able to access those classes to be able to get and turn in my work, it affected my grades. The “to do” section seems like it would be really helpful, telling you what you have left to do and when it’s due, but it glitches so much that it’s an inconvenience. I tried to access it the other day to find out what homework I had to finish, and instead of showing me what was due the next day, it displayed all the homework I had ever been assigned for every class I was currently enrolled in, marked as missing even though I had turned it in months ago. This app is terrible, and what makes it even worse is that if they just put a little effort into it, it would make classes more convenient and accessible, but instead it’s doing the opposite. Along with all of that, it’s super slow. Every time I try to open it, it takes an exorbitant amount of time to load, even when literally everything else that I might need WiFi for works fine. Even if I go to a place that I know has faster WiFi in an attempt to fix this problem somehow, the app still takes the same crazy long amount of time to load.
One feature is extremely annoying.
As a student, I find it convenient that I have access to my assignments and materials from home, and as a Google user, I know I can trust this app. However, I find it inconvenient and downright preposterous that this app, when being used through the mobile app version, goes back to the home/classes page when the app is exited. I find this annoying, because there are many cases in which this slows down efficiency and honestly just makes a bad day worse. For one, if my iPhone turns off due to myself reading something in an assignment and not scrolling for a few minutes, I have to sign in an open the assignment all the way from the beginning. Another example could be if a student is doing legit research for an assignment, or is opening something in another website required for said assignment, and misses their deadline by a minute because the can’t trust that they may close the app for just a few seconds. I understand the fear of plagiarism, but honestly, there is a reason that anti-plagiarism websites and softwares exist; Namely, so that these measures do not have to. I’d truly love to love this website/app, as it is very useful, but I absolutely despise this feature. If I’m already upset about something, this will just throw me off the edge. I hope that this feature is revised or removed. Wishing only the best.
Changed the “add attachment” menu for no reason
In the new update, when you click add attachment, it opens up this menu that closes if you swipe down when you’re at the top of the list. However, when I swipe down that means I want to refresh the list because I’ve just uploaded a new file, not close out of the “add attachment” menu. However now I can’t do that, so I have to go into the drive app, reload the classroom app, and wait way longer than I should need to. This menu itself also always defaults to sorting by name rather than last modified, even though the assignment you want to submit is probably something you recently worked on and would thus be at the top of the last modified list. This has been an issue since the app first came out however.
This is honestly ridiculous. How could they screw up something so simple? Why would they take away a useful feature for no reason? The new layout for assignments is awful in general, there was absolutely nothing wrong with the old layout, so this app has actually been on a trend of bad updates. I don’t get it, does an app need to meet a quota of updates for it to make money or something? Why else would such clearly garbage updates be pumped out? Such a shame, but I have to use this app for school.
