Overall Satisfaction with Google Classroom

Google Classroom is used by a subset of our employees to demonstrate the viability of a Google ecosystem in our choice of suites. Currently, we use Microsoft 365 as our productivity suite and Cornerstone OD as our LMS. However, I have extensive experience with G-Suite and think that Google apps can serve a certain population in our hospital. Managing education within that population has been far more intuitive with the use of Google Classroom in conjunction with G-Suite applications.
  • Google Classroom work seamlessly with G-Suite applications, allowing us to create and share learning and materials and submit them for review and distribution
  • Google Classroom is intuitive to use and easy to learn
  • When using Classroom, the workflow of distributing assignments, receiving completed work, and providing feedback on the assignments is far more intuitive than in the enterprise LMS that we also use.
  • Classroom works best for those in G-Suite environments. I have to extend accounts to non-Google users to offer its benefits.
  • I would like to see Classroom add an annotation feature. Many of my educators request this option in their feedback workflow.
  • Video submissions are often cumbersome depending on file type.
  • Our deployment of G-Suite was fairly cost efficient, so the use of Classroom offered no negative financial impact
  • Piloting Classroom has allowed us to weigh different options in an online learning environment.
  • One of the goals is to be an employer of choice, and presenting new staff with a tool that intuitive and familiar helps us reach that goal.
A dedicated LMS is far more capable in providing control, customization, and analytics. Customer service from enterprise LMS clients also offers more options and support.
Google Classroom is best suited to a fixed group of users where everyone is a managed Google user within a G-Suite environment. We have an often transient group of learners, some of whom are not within our managed network of Google users. Therefore, our situation may not be ideal.
