Pros

It has been an amazing platform for all our educational needs. This is probably the best product that a university or school can invest in especially during this pandemic situation.
Overall MS Teams is a very good software with amazing features and amazing customer support.
Everything is extremely user friendly, with a nice graphical interface and all the other added integrated features are really a nice bonus too.

Pros

I appreciate the ease of setting up Google classroom and the variety of tools available. It is a great way to keep the class connected as a learning community and help them stay organized.
Google Classroom has been a lifesaver for me as an educator. I enjoy implementing technology into my classroom and Google Classroom served as an efficient platform to do that for my students.
I liked that Google Classroom was easy to use and navigate. It had a lot of great functionality and made our young daughter's online school experience a good one.

Cons

When video is being used and when a different background is used and when the person moves it looks very fake and weird.
It has bad connection when working remotely. With a team of 30 on one call, we were getting every other word in and it made meeting ineffective.
The most frustrating part is that teams can crash if there are too many people on at once.

Cons

The problem is that it's hard to spot actual messages from teachers in that sea of unread notifications. There are also issues with being unable to tell whether work was submitted.
Another problem that could make lecturers feel uncomfortable is that the assignments distributed to the students may be re-edited by themselves, which is unacceptable.
So if accidentally any part of the assignment gets deleted then it creates a problem for other students as well.

Hard to get excited about.

Reviewed 2 years ago

It's fine. It does the job, but not enjoyably. Glitches and difficulties make it frustrating to use on a daily basis.

Pros

Teams is trying to do what Google Classroom does....and I give credit for the effort. Creating a fully functional classroom with assignments, streams/classes, ways to connect, etc is a worthy cause, and something they should continue to work the bugs out of so that it can be a solid product.

Cons

Unfortunately Teams is filled with inconsistencies in function, form, and quality. Seems unable to handle a classroom sized group of students without malfunctioning. There are multiple ways to upload, view, and turn in assignments, making it confusing for the students using it (and the teachers trying to explain where to find things). Multiple misses in the design of the system, like teachers are unable to see students asking to enter a class or raise their hand while they share their screen. And if not a design issue in itself, the help tools in finding how to make those things possible seems difficult to find for those who need it.

Great tool during online learning

Reviewed 2 years ago

This allowed our school to stay connected with students at home during the past 2 schoolyears.

Pros

The ability to quickly connect with students at home while still being able to teach students in my classroom. I could quickly press a button and connect my computer screen and video to any student that couldn't be in my classroom.

Cons

Maybe it was an internet issue, but it was common for me to experience issues where my video was lagging or stopped working.

Using Microsoft Teams for education

Reviewed 3 years ago

I've been using Teams mostly since we moved from in-person education to online due to the recent pandemic.

Pros

It's flexible for use when working remote exclusively or for being in my classroom with my students.

Cons

I wish it was a bit more customizable. For example, I'd like to be able to change the labels. Also, I wish the video recording with a bit more user friendly.

Pros

Good for holding a classroom because it can upload files, chat, and set deadlines for tasks all in one place.

Cons

For video meetings, it is not as good as its competitor. And it is hard to change the profile in the school/ enterprise version because it is controlled centrally by the enterprise administrator

I have no complaints about this software. I do not use it often, and only to communicate via messages, so I am not aware of any cons.

Microsoft Teams was our great savior during the beginning of the pandemic

Reviewed 2 years ago

I love the software and I highly recommend it. it's helpful and handy. I am using it!

Pros

schools in my country were closed when the Coronavirus pandemic reached dangerous levels last year, Mars. We needed to reach our students even when they are inside their homes. M.Teams saved us. it facilitated connecting with the students and assigning exercises and explaining lessons and discussing things that matter. it also allowed us to chat with each student in private, which helped us cope with each one's difficulties and needs. There are also many other features that I love about this software, such as online chat, video sharing, screen-sharing...etc

Cons

the system may lag some times when there is pressure on the server; for example, when uploading a video or an image to the classroom page it keeps failing.

bare bones but workable

Reviewed 2 years ago

It's functional, but clearly designed for business usage much more than classroom usage. They seem to have no clue what functionalities teachers need.

Pros

The entire O365 suite of course integrates with Teams very smoothly--but forget about any other non-MS plug-ins.

Cons

Many of my students prefer Google docs to the O365 suite, and those links are blocked constantly by Teams. MS likes too protect its own apps, which can be prohibitive when kids want to do things their own way.

Join the Team that will make the dream be

Reviewed a year ago

Overall, Microsoft Teams is great. It feels a bit more secure and is very user friendly.

Pros

Microsoft Teams is very easy to use and is user-friendly. I enjoy being able to have multiple views and layouts on the software. Teams make it so if you want to view everyone, "classroom" style, it's easy and you would be able to see all participants if their camera is turned on.

Cons

What I dislike about Microsoft Teams is that when we use the "Classroom" view, it flips our camera. That just throws me off a bit, but otherwise, it is still great!

it is a good software for educational purposes, you can easily control the classroom during the lecture by sharing the screen and sending files to the participants.

Cons

Works well in a school setting for in-class and remote instruction

Reviewed a year ago

Teams adds an extra layer of communication possibilities on top of OneNote Classroom Notebooks. I really like OneNote notebooks for instruction and for portfolio possibilities.

Pros

I like the integration with MS Office 365, particularly with Forms and with OneNote Classroom Notebooks. It works well both when doing remote and online instruction and in-class instruction. Communication with all or some students is easy and it is properly recorded. Checking the status of assignments is very good.

Cons

The integration with our LMS was a bit weak. Marks from Teams were not always properly transferred into our LMS. The saving of files cross different teams is not always easy to follow. I sometimes had a bit of trouble with the integration of quizzes using MS Forms.

Confusing At First But Very Useful Tool

Reviewed 2 years ago

Pandemic has brought around some much needed change in the world we live in, including the way we educate children. My daughter's school adapted and introduced MS Teams to families. I was confident that I am able to learn its functions right away because I have always been a technical person. But NO, I was surprised that it was not very intuitive at all. I had to LEARN it and LOVE it. Once you are familiar with how it works, you will see why the school opted to use it. It has more functions than Google Classroom.

Pros

I like that it is very useful when used as an online classroom. Young kids, with regular use, will be able to navigate the basic functions on their own.

Cons

I had trouble when I first used it. As a technical person myself, it was not easy to adapt to its functions. We, the parents of the school kids, had to undergo 1 week training in order to be familiar with MS Teams. It was not like Zoom or Google Meet which are basically touch-and-go apps you can easily work with from the beginning.

Microsoft Teams for Teaching High School?

Reviewed 2 years ago

As student teachers Microsoft teams makes it easier for me to manage my classroom by allowing me to control you are able to remove and mute persons.

Pros

Since March of 2020 I have been using teams for group work, online classes and even test. It is great application for lecturer time lessons. What I find very useful is the feature that allows you to mute, add or remove participants from the meeting. There are time persons forget to mute there microphones and it can be a bit distracting for those who are trying to listen to a presentation. Another feature that i find really handy is the whiteboard feature that allows every participant to be able to use it at the same time, which is great when asking a student to work a math problem for the class to see.

Cons

Though Microsoft teams interactive whiteboard is good it is limited. The application does not allow the students to interact with other materials that you might have planned, such as an online game. Like google classroom that allows you to add extensions that would make the students able to interact with your screen teams does not have this. For lessons that have a lot of manipulatives and require high interaction from the students teams is not the software for the job.

Review on Microsoft Teams

Reviewed 2 years ago

MS Teams is in overall and outstanding software where you could have video conferences or audio calls. You could monitor each student separately or class by class which is a great feature. So I would recommend this software to anyone who either wants to teach or learn online. Just go for it. You won't regret.

Pros

I have been using Microsoft Teams for quite a long time period and I have never had any big issue with joining a meeting or conducting one. Teams has made my work a lot more easier by allowing me to create a virtual classroom using channels which is not much different from the actual physical classroom. Also the ability to assign projects and assignments is great. This software takes e-learning to the next standard.

Cons

The one drawback I see is that sometimes there are issues in connecting through apple devices. Other than that, this software is simply amazing.

College Experience: Great in Theory, Adequate in Execution

Reviewed 2 years ago

Great for college settings and explicit multi-team organizations. However, Slack and Google Workspace are similarly viable options that could be considered based on the desire for video conferencing quality.

Pros

For the pandemic classroom setting, the ability to have classes/teams and channels was INCREDIBLE, as well as managed file systems that allowed for teachers to share resources and students to manage their file submissions in an easy manner.

Cons

Video quality was often poor, which is likely a function of compounded feature loading (f.e. having audio calls while collaborating on a DOCX file often lead to clipping and pronounced lagging).

The conferencing was an excellent feature however, my video screen sharing would great some video performance issues with attendees. Overall, an excellent SaaS for small business owners who use PC.

Teams for students and Office use

Reviewed a year ago

I have been using Teams, Webex, Zoom parallelly for attending classes and online examinations, most of my lectures are arranged in teams where apart from meetings, we can have assignments, grading, chatting. It's the best one-stop for all the classroom activities.

Pros

Most convenient way of organising meetings. Best platform for both Live lectures and recorder, we don't need to download another software to play the recorded videos. Screensharing is butter smooth especially while sharing 3d graphic software visuals. While other apps fail to recognise the importance of scroll button on mouse, teams Is spot on.

Cons

To be able to pin my video for screen recording. Especially for proctoring of examinations, we need to have video of ourselves while able to see questions.

Microsoft Teams Unique Features Make Up for Lacking Quality

Reviewed 2 years ago

Teams has some issues and is not my first choice for this type of software, but it has extra features that some may enjoy.

Pros

Microsoft Teams is bulkier than other similar software products, with a clunky design and issues causing slow-down for extra large groups. However, there are some neat extra features like the "classroom" setting background and the ability to change your personal background settings or blur your background.

Cons

The organization of the chats and different rooms is rather clunky if you are using multiple team chats/video calls.

It is fine but I do use Google Meet much more often as I use Google Calendar and its easier together.

Pros

It is easy to use and intuitive. It has every feature that I would want and it all works well together.

Cons

It is not so much that I liked anything least but there is nothing unique to me that makes it better than Zoom or Google Meet.

Works like zoom and other similar

Reviewed 2 years ago

Works the same as other similar programs out here

Pros

Works just as good as zoom and Microsoft teams stuff. I can’t really say anything extra because it just serves its purpose

Cons

The layout was a little boring I wish they would change the tip a bit for sharing purposes when presenting

Google Classroom review

I switched from teams, and I feel the overall layout of this one is better than teams. The extra features for testing top it off.

Pros

I think the tests/reports were the best part about this, ensuring my business stays accurate so my workers know what theyre doing when they answer the test.

Cons

There was nothing bad with google classrooms. It’s a simple app and nothing wrong with it.

Good but there may be better

Reviewed 3 years ago

It's a great start for educational institutions.

Pros

Easy to use and, for school, feature rich in terms of how tutors can interact with their students.

Cons

I think that though it's great, MS Teams may have an edge over it. MS Teams seems more integrated into Windows and the Skype echo-system which is used by millions and is proven to be very stable. Classroom's file sharing, conferencing however are still good to use.

Great free tool

Reviewed 3 years ago

Great! Being currently used for passing updates to my team which can be acknowledged by them and for conducting assessments.

Pros

Great for passing updates and conducting assessments. Serves as a good substitute for LMS for small teams.

Cons

Nothing at the moment. Wish it was not linked to Google forms at that seems like an overhead at times.

Simple to use and effective

Reviewed a month ago
Pros

Google classroom is very user friendly. A child, a teacher, anyone can learn how to use it. Even though it is simple it does offer a lot of tools for in person to online learning integration.

Cons

I quite like the layout of Microsoft Notebooks and if it was laid out a bit better like a notebook, it would behelpful.

I think that Google Classroom is a great tool to use among coworkers when sharing information and ideas.

Pros

Google Classroom is a great tool for sharing lessons and work plans with other colleagues, and staff members. Google Classroom allows you to upload assignments, notes, PDFS, and any other documents. You can share items with your team in real time so that you can see if and when any changes are made.

Cons

I think that the only con that I have for Google Classroom is that you can't import documents from Microsoft word into Google.

J.L. Google Classroom Review

Reviewed 5 months ago

Google Classroom is a software where students, teachers, business partners and more can communicate and share information in various formats. With the addition of giving feedback via the 'Add Comment' feature prevents persons not being able to communicate entirely. The layout and design of the software is user-friendly, hence anyone can learn to use the software for the first-time.

Pros

The ability to view large video files without much buffering.

Cons

The inability to view some video files from the software itself, thus moving to browsers like Microsoft Edge on a device like an Amazon Tablet.

The best right now

Reviewed a year ago

At the university we use more frequent MS Teams and we only use Google Classroom on a few subjects. I personally prefer working in Google Classroom.

Pros

Easy and intuitive operation, very nice simple design, provides all the basic functionality needed for a virtual classroom (homework, assignments, materials, evaluation, ...)

Cons

I didn't find anything that bothered me. In my opinion, this is currently the best platform for virtual classrooms.
