Google Classroom Overview

What is Google Classroom?

Google Classroom is a collaboration tool for educators to create assignments, provide feedback, and track student progress. Features include materials and resource organization, contacts database, originality reports, comments bank, locked mode, custom fields, permissions management, and more.

With Google Classroom, teachers can create, assign, and distribute coursework to students, providing consistency in content as well as ensuring all students have access to assignments when not in the classroom. Teachers can issue grades on submissions and the platform's comment bank enables teachers to give common feedback quickly. Additionally, teachers can provide custom feedback as well as collaborate with other teachers, with a record of all feedback and grades stored for future reference and progress tracking.

Google Classroom originality reports feature enables teachers and students to scan submissions for matching text on the web. The reports highlight any high similarity in submissions, missing citations, ineffective paraphrasing, or unintended plagiarism. This enables teachers to provide feedback to enhance students' academic authenticity and integrity and also provides students with the opportunity to edit coursework before final submission.

With Google Classroom, teachers can store classroom resources and materials as well as student grades and progress reports. Additionally, details of students, guardians, and co-teachers can be managed and accessed according to specified permissions. With the locked mode feature, teachers can assign quizzes to students, providing them with a locked domain for completing the quiz, preventing any access to other sites. Additionally, other applications are disabled, including extensions and keyboard shortcuts, enabling students to complete quizzes without distractions or interruptions.

Google Classroom integrates with many other third party learning and education platforms for digital literacy, creativity, coding & computer science, languages, arts and culture, and more.

Google Classroom provides effective learning environment at home.

I have been running my classes in Google Classroom by integrating it with Google Hangouts Meet and Google Forms. I am loving it!

A great online classroom

I have to say that I am impressed with the Google classroom and what its able to do. With the current state of everyone being home online classrooms became a must have. While I did have access to more advance CMS that are structured for an education being pressed for time I chose to use Google Classroom. I now have about three classes online with a total of 50 students and I can say that Google classroom helps a lot with the day to day tasks when it came to teaching and providing assignments. Student we able to join and with some minor issues they were also able to upload their work. The great thing is that its accessible on both PC and Mobile so it can cater to more students.

A friendly platform for education

I learned to use this platform in the midst of the pandemic crisis, so it was wonderful to be able to learn so quickly, without interrupting my course. I like that I can include many varied resources and that it is a platform that allows both synchronous and asynchronous work modes. I can present what I have on my computer screen and combine applications and other tools. It allows collaborative work and allows an orderly course.

Pros

Google Classroom lets its user to host online classes and manage them effectively. The application is easy to adapt and packs a lot of essential functions. Teachers can give assignments to their students via Google Classroom and the students have to submit it by attaching files within the date fixed by the host. And the host gives marking to the assignments. It can be used by integrating it along with other sites provided by Google to make the learning process more effective.

Cons

Google Classroom has all of the features required to run online classes effectively and I have never faced any problems using it.

While I did have access to more advance CMS that are structured for an education being pressed for time I chose to use Google Classroom.

Student we able to join and with some minor issues they were also able to upload their work. The great thing is that its accessible on both PC and Mobile so it can cater to more students.

Pros

The interface is sleek as with most Google designs. The lay out is simple and you can easily find everything you need to set up your classroom. Since I had three separate classes, I was able to configure each separately adding students via the provided invite code that can be generated by the classroom. Work and assignments can be easily structured for use by students and I love how Google gives you a dedicated Google Drive for storing uploaded classroom content. This accommodates all types of documents and media. There is also integration with YouTube which means students can watch videos from the classroom. I can give assignments and students can also upload their projects. As a basic educational tool Google Classroom is great.

Cons

The biggest downside is that it is too basic and lacks some extra features or some of the features implemented are limited. Maybe this is part of Google concept where all services are separated into apps in their G-Suite, but it can be annoying having a conference call with students, then switching to the classroom, then having to switch to the whiteboard. If all these services where integrated, it would make life a lot better. Also, there a few features that you will have to search online for instructions. Student notifications only work when new content is added. It you correct errors or made upgrades you will need to manually alert your students.

Pros

What I like most about Google Classroom is the easiness. It's a very good program for students. The teacher creates a ''classroom'' and shares it to all people in the class via Gmail. And then can the students do the work. The teacher can write instructions too. When it's done can the teacher automatically see the work. And it is harder to not be finished with the work, you can see when the work needs to finish. This software is awesome! I've used it a lot when I was a student. I really recommend this!

Cons

What I like less about Google Classroom is that it is crashing sometimes. When I was a student, sometimes I couldn't log in. It's the only thing that isn't so good. Otherwise, I love Google Classroom!
