Google Classroom

Google Classroom review

Google Classroom is an app developed for Schools to simplify the learning process in a paperless manner. Google Classroom Platform - brings together useful Google services organized specifically for the study.

Functionality 4/5

On the main page, you choose your "role": teachers create courses, and students join them. Each "class" automatically receives a code according to which students will be able to find their teacher and classmates. Having created the course, you get to the main panel: in the horizontal menu, there are three tabs: “Ribbon” with all available updates. The sections "Tasks" and "Users" contain information about classmates and teachers. Owners of personal Google Accounts can create up to 30 courses per day, join a maximum of 100 courses, and open access to a maximum of 200-course participants. 

Design 4/5

The application has a news feed in which you can add your messages, pictures, or videos. You can create chat rooms for communication on the topic of study or flooding. Students can see the list of course objectives: both completed and those that are yet to be completed. In this case, each student, the teacher can give an individual task that others will not see.

Usability 5/5

Google has tried to make the learning process multilateral. The easiest way to distribute roles: teacher-student. The first one places materials, attaches files, creates tasks; the second ones get acquainted with the information, “do their homework” and get grades. If necessary, comments are added at each stage - for example, when the task needs to be returned, the teacher asks to add or fix something.

Cross-platform use 5/5

Google Classroom has integration with Google Drive, Docs, Calendar, Forms, and Gmail. Google Classroom is available wherever there is an Internet. You can enter the Classroom on a computer in any browser, as well as from mobile devices based on Android and Apple iOS. It also integrates Google Drive for creating and sharing tasks, Google Docs, Sheets and Slides for writing, Gmail for chatting, and Google Calendar for scheduling. 

In-app purchases 

Unlike many other similar Services, Google Class is free, easy to use, and easily integrates with other Google services. This application doesn't contain internal purchases, and all functions are free.
