  • Creating classes
  • Sharing ressources
  • Assigning Homework
  • Organization of courses
  • I would like for it to add certain features such as live streaming of classes, similar to a Google Meet video. This would allow students to better understand their lessons.
  • An option to evaluate students directly from the platform.

  • Clean and Simple User Interface makes the productivity fast.
  • Has built-in third-party apps as well as a huge library of Google built-in plugins like plagiarism checker.
  • Good Multi Device support.
  • Sharing and Collaboration between the students and teachers is good.
  • The content management of the Classroom is not that good. The sub-section for notes, syllabus, or discussion is missing.
  • It doesn't have parental control feature.
  • It converts the excel output into a normal file. All the formulas and pivots got changed into plain text.

  • It has an option "to-do list", I personally like this option because it shows us which assignments are given and when we have to submit them.
  • Google Classroom sends us emails all the time when our teachers update or add anything to the classroom.
  • It has mobile application so that we can use it at our comfort.
  • We can use all of the tools Google has with Google Classroom. For example- we can use Google Docs, Google Sheet, Google Form, Google Drive, etc with ease in Google Classroom.
  • There is another option as plagiarism checker which really help in the assignment.
  • Option "to-do list" takes a bit of time to refresh in the mobile application to show our given assignment.

  • Google Classroom does very well with its clean interface.
  • I love using the different tabs so that I can post different lessons on the website.
  • I love the integration with Google Meet as it is very important to communicate with students.
  • I think the interface needs a major uplift at some point.
  • Sometimes the Google Meet does crash.
  • Sometimes the website is not responsive.

  • Google Classroom is a great website for managing and organizing learning. i
  • It is simple to use for interface.
  • It interacts with a wide range of apps and websites; effortlessly shares, collects, and grades Google Workspace documents.
  • The young students, they usually need an adult to read tabs for them to understand; a totally visual interface would be better.
  • Using an application on a mobile device causes some lagging.
  • Not all applications make it simple to assign assignments using Google Classroom.

  • The system is relatively easy to begin with.
  • It is integrated with Google Drive and Google Docs, which makes recycling relatively easy.
  • It is platform-independent.
  • It is relatively speedy.
  • Tests and quizzes (in my experience) are primitive and do not allow modern testing techniques involving IRT.
  • Recycling of materials is, at best, counterintuitive.
  • Formation of subgroups is difficult.

  • If we register Google Classroom with our organization's mail ID we can use the integrated Google Meet for conducting online meetings, online classes, etc, but if we are using our personal mail ID for creating a classroom then we need G-Suite for setting up Google Meet.
  • We can perform different online classwork like assignments, quizzes, and also we can conduct online exams with a proper grading system.
  • Each of the classrooms created will be associated with a separate class code, we can simply share this class code to the students and with the help of this code they can easily join our class. Another method is we can add students by manually entering their mail ID.
  • The default integration of Google Meet is absent if we are creating the classroom using our personal mail ID, and for integration we need G-Suite and we need to pay for it.
  • The UI could be little more appealing, since the existing platform uses very simple and basic UI.
  • Uninterrupted internet connection is required for proper working.

  • It notifies my students via email when I share a resource or file with them.
  • It allows me to verify the time and date of the release of information.
  • I don't seem to get email notification when my students post into the classroom.
  • The ability to record voice and/or video messages easily and directly into Google classroom would be great. I would love to be able to stream and store my lessons in Google Classroom!

  • Allows individual “classrooms” or groups to be made to manage different groups of individuals.
  • Makes adding materials and documents easy by pulling easily from Google Drive.
  • I’d like to be able to schedule assignments for three different groups at once instead of having to go into each classroom individually.
  • It would be nice for the chat feature to be able to be turned off by the teacher/administrator on shared documents.
