I think Google Classroom is a more complete package than Khan Academy because of its integration with Google Classroom and it is a well-suited platform for student learning because it allows students to post questions on discussions and participate in its platform. Google Meet is an integral part of the platform because it allows the teacher and the student to communicate with one another.

I selected Google Classroom because it is a great website for managing and organizing learning. It is simple to use for interface; interacts with a wide range of apps and websites; effortlessly shares, collects, and grades Google Workspace documents. It is also free , inexpensive, and accessible for teachers, students, parents, and administrators alike. It also utilizes Google services like Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides, making Google Classroom simple to use and easy to share information, and helps ease student work evaluation.

Google Classroom ties to the Google G Suite for EDU which has very good support and documentation as needed, at no additional cost, which is a big deal for setting it up. The integration with Chromebooks, Active Directory, Clever and other common platforms make it very attractive. The others were a bit less refined and do not have as much responsive support when setting up.

Google Classroom was chosen unilaterally for one of my places of work, although I had checked Google Classroom when it was first released and decided against it for my own company owing to its poor reporting and other controls.
Provided one has the servers to use it and an administrator to run it, Moodle is superior in nearly every respect, particularly security, testing, and analytics.

We think Google Classroom is better than the existing platforms like Moodle, Canvas, and Microsoft Teams due to the following reasons:
  1. Moodle is a better platform that can compete with Google Classroom, since it is free and we can download and customize as per our wish and we can host it in our own space. But the main problem is we need a little bit of technical experience for this.
  2. Canvas is another web-based LMS platform, the main disadvantage that we faced is for accessing the complete features of the LMS we need to pay a good amount of money.
  3. Microsoft Teams is currently emerging, but it is not very user friendly and the UI seems confusing.
We haven't found any of the above problems in Google Classroom and we selected this LMS.

I think Google Classroom is better suited for younger audiences and less tech-involved than a Blackboard or Canvas site. I would much rather use google classroom with my student in a middle school than Blackboard and Canvas which are better suited for colleges. I think those look better, but Google Classroom is more functional.

To create an instructional space online, Google Classroom is ahead of its competitors. It does precisely what educators need - create a virtual classroom where students can collaborate, post discussions, post their work, and receive immediate feedback. It feels like a real classroom. Schoology, though user-friendly and connected to the district's LMS, does not allow as much autonomy for educators to add outside apps and is otherwise more "robotic" than Google Classroom. Schoology feels and looks like Facebook, with student collaboration limited to comments, whereas Google Classroom feels like a real classroom in digital space.

  • Schoology, Moodle and Blackbaud Education Management Solutions (formerly Blackbaud K–12 ON Solutions)
Google classroom has some great features - assignment creation most notably and the automatic creation of folder structures, however, it really lacks the functionality that some of these others do in terms of building out a full course page, with syllabus, other content, video, news, links, etc. Also, the lack of integration and inflexibility in the grading module make it difficult to manage and inferior to some of these other fully functioning LMS solutions.

Interestingly enough, I do not have another format/product that I have utilized to be able to compare/contrast it to Google Classroom. However, I do find that Google Classroom is quite an effective strategy for distance learning and collaboration with students. I chose to use it because I believed that it would help improve the classroom environment while also allowing students to be responsible for their own work.

Google does a great job of doing the obvious: integrating Google's Drive system as schoolwork. It does a great job of scheduling assignments and sending reminders to students.

Google Classroom and Canvas are very similar programs, but yet they still have things that are different from each other. Google Classroom is a free option to use for our school, so that is always a plus when finding software. They are both great for recording grades, but Google Classroom seems to be a little bit more user-friendly.

It is free of cost plus it is extremely easy to use. Its features are easy to understand as well and once accustomed one can easily apply them anywhere needed. It also gives several accesses to URLs links which students can easily view that is why it stacks against many other apps.
