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. Saves time The simple, paperless assignment workflow allows teachers to create, review, and grade assignments quickly, all in one place. Improves organization 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. Affordable and secure Like the rest of G Suite for Education services, Classroom contains no ads, never uses your content or student data for advertising purposes, and is free. Permissions Notice: Camera: Needed to allow the user to take photos or videos and post them to Classroom. Microphone: Needed to enable audio capture for recording videos to be posted to Classroom. Photos: Needed to allow the user to attach photos or videos to Classroom. Photos or videos posted to Classroom will be stored on Google servers in order to show them in Classroom.



  • Great class management tool but need improvements

    I hope the developers actually read this... First of all, I am very grateful for this tool/app. It certainly makes my life easier as a teacher with two big classes. In general, it is a very helpful tool to manage your class and students. With the addition of the ‘material’ option in classwork, it makes it really convenient to post agenda, handouts, or just information if I want to keep record of them (because the posts on the stream gets pushed down over time). However, on the app, the posts always don’t show as its complete version. The posts are always cut off below the first two lines, which makes it very inconvenient for students who use their cellphone to access more often than on a PC. Some of my students don’t have computer access everyday so it makes it really difficult and a little discouraging for them to keep up with all the information provided online, especially when they are all trying to improve their computer/ internet literacy. I truly hope this issue can eventually be resolved in the next few updates.
  • problems never end

    1. It deletes my homework. 2. once you wrote something you can never delete. 3. It is laggy.
  • Non stop bugs!

    By stanley13579
    This program needs more work. It keeps glitching and saying I haven’t submitted assignments when I have. Many other people in my class have this problem, both my teacher and I are very confused. Software glitches that I can’t control should not be affecting my grade like they are. If you’re looking to use an online school program, I’d recommend canvas. I’ve never had a problem with that, whereas google classroom is laden with them.
  • Thank you for this wonderful gift!

    Excellent program! I am so grateful! I wish we could put students who are no longer in the class in a separate file so they don’t show up on the current student list. Otherwise, fantastic! I would like to see the About tab come back. I post photos, videos, slides for students that are not assignments. Otherwise love the app!
  • Design

    Super sleek and easy to navigate.
  • Love it!

    By ~*Trisha*~
    I love that GC just keeps getting better!!! So here is my recent wish list...drag and drop for topics and assignments Loving Topics!! The ability to pin an announcement at the top. Set the default to first view to Classwork! Kids get confused looking at the stream.
  • it used to be better

    By ColtonTG1
    i liked it before this new update, it’s confusing and i have to click on things to know if i turned them in
  • Old format was better

    By mrsw-math
    I do not like the new design. The class work section should have the newest assignment at the top and not the bottom. It’s very confusing for teachers and students.
  • GC is tough to use

    By suzbreneman
    I used ebackpack for 5 years. Admin pulled the plug on it due to cost. My stud and I ate struggling big time with GC. The biggest problem is kids losing their work right in front of their eyes. So crusty. I am loathe to go back to paper, but I can’t add technology stress onto the kids.
