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
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.

Google Classroom is convienient.

Reviewed 24 days ago
Pros

I love the fact that Google Classroom (like most Google products) integrate their other products with each other. For example, with Google Classroom, users (ranging from teachers and other faculty to students) can use Google Meet to conduct video calls for classes, lecturing, holding parent-teacher conferences, and other meetings. There's a seamless feeling I get from that and it's very convenient for users.

Cons

There were no cons or what I liked least about this software.

Google Classroom, with various integration options, is the top-notch product in the LMS industry

Reviewed 2 months ago

We have been using Google Classroom since 3 years due to the COVID pandemic and my experience with this product has been excellent so far. It has helped us a lot in keeping track of my students' progress and has become an essential tool for us in imparting education to my students due to this pandemic. It is an easy-to-use cloud-based LMS solution so one can access Google Classroom through the browser without downloading anything. Google Classroom has provided us with excellent ROI. With the implementation of Google Classroom, students' grades have improved a great deal.

Pros

The feature of Google Classroom that I like the most is the easy-to-use, user-friendly and attractive user interface. Another favourable feature is that this platform is totally cloud-based and so it works on any browser. Google Classroom has various features for keeping my students interactive and engaged in my classes. The most helpful feature of Google Classroom is the ability to link a Google Doc...

Cons

One feature that Google Classroom is missing is the attendance marking feature. This feature is available in most of the competitor's products and so it might be a downside for those who are considering this product. When the stream is updated from the teacher's side, it does not immediately show up on the students' side. They will have to reload the page to view the updated stream which is a bit painful somehow.

My Review of Google Classroom

Reviewed a month ago

My overall experience with Google Classroom is a little bit good but it still needs more features and capabilities.

Pros

Google Classroom provides a high quality social learning. I like assignment grading of Google Classroom. Also, it has a very simple interface with just the main menus. I love that uploading documents to Google Classroom will be through my Google Drive.

Cons

The mobile application version of Google Classroom is not good having glitches and lags. Also, I don't like that there are no interactive activities that can be done through Google Classroom.

Google Classroom: The Modern Virtual Classroom

Reviewed 3 months ago

I have used Google Classroom both as a student and as a teaching assistant. The features I thought that lacked as a student, were in-fact present beforehand which the teachers were forgetting to do, such as properly labelling posts/assignments, and arranging every student's grade in the application in itself. This basically implies that there is a learning curve to the application and is not as straightforward, which is due to the multitude of features present in the application.

Pros

Classroom makes it easy for teachers to create their classrooms and manage students in it. Counter-intuitively, it is extremely easy for students to register into their preferred classrooms. The administrators can add multiple teachers (teaching assistants) to help the main teacher help with managing the classroom. One can also sync the Classroom with a lot of apps from the Google Suite, such as Google Docs, Sheets, Slides and Meet.

Cons

Google Classroom currently lacks a search bar to search for appropriate post/assignment. This makes it difficult to search through the timeline for a post, unless it is appropriately labelled, which is usually forgotten by the teacher/instructor.

Virtual Classroom

Reviewed a month ago

Amazing! It is a valuable and productive application. I would prescribe it to individuals who haven't attempted it. By and large, I love the capacity to assemble materials and tasks into one point of convergence, per class, since it tells understudies where to really look at data. Google concentrate on room worked out the quantity of tasks for each class of different subjects.

Pros

It is moderately simple to set up a class and welcome understudies to join. You will probably have to watch an instructional exercise first, however from that point forward, it is really direct. I like that it time-stamps submitted work. I like the most about this stage is the association between online courses. Making tasks, taking tests, sharing declarations, contacting understudies exclusively, capacity of understudy task documents in the connected Google account in all around organized way, sharing of Google structures or connections to assets from outer sources help make instructing understudies extremely productive.

Cons

Google Classroom at present misss the imprint on search bar to look for authentic post/task. This makes it hard to look through the arrangement for a post, beside if it is properly named, which is ordinarily forgotten by the teacher/instructor.
