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.

Before this last update, the to-do tab was absolutely essential to getting my work done. Overall, I think the app and website are heading in a great direct, but please bring back the to-do tab!! It was great to be able to see all my work in one place and one of the features that made the app great. Please bring it back!!
grudz2 on 8/15/2018
All I have is a frozen blank green screen! I can’t even access my emails or messages anymore!!
Bring back the to do list “tab”—it is the only thing that parents need
save me time on 8/15/2018
We use Google classroom for the first time last year, and I raved about how much I love the to do list. It was awesome. Why would they take it away???! As a parent, I don’t have time to click through 6 to 7 different class pages to see what my child has to do this week. I also need Quick access to what she has marked as done for the next day, so I can verify that she’s got it in her backpack. Finally being able to see what is due for an entire week for all of her classes helps both me and her prioritize when we have to tackle work early and which projects to tackle first. This new classroom stream format is completely unusable for parents and Children.
I need the To Do list back
smivs.14 on 8/14/2018
I like GC and it is very helpful with school— my entire school uses it. But with the new update you guys took away the To Do lost and no one at my school likes it. Not even the teachers. Three complaints have been filed from teachers. Anyway the To Do list is mandatory for me and most everyone at my school.

I would give this app five stars but occasionally it would lag and crash. I don’t know why. Also I dislike school, but that’s not the point. Sometimes whenever my teacher posts a new assignment it doesn’t show up until a day or two later, but this has only happened twice. Besides that, this app is great!
Let’s go this is awesome

Wow I love this app I will almost post a new video every day it’s so awesome!!!!-

Good until the update
kfkcncncjj on 8/10/2018
Google classroom was a really good app until it got the update. Because now there’s no to do list. Not like it’s that big of a deal but I’m still mad. I just used it to play around with with my cousin.
I absolutely love Google Classroom!
Pigletnyc on 8/9/2018
My class uses Google Classroom a lot, and I have a lot of sports and other things, so when I didn't have my computer on me, this app was a life saver. All of my assignments were on here and I could easily mark them up right from my phone or iPad. I would 100% recommend for any student who uses GC and for any and all teachers. GC definitely changed my learning experience in the best possible way.
DJBear2008 on 8/8/2018
I love this app I don’t use it at school because I’m in summer and my mom does assignments for me she a sub so clearly I’m a student
To-Do Tab
wenava05 on 8/8/2018
Where did the to-do tab go? Are we not going to be able to use it anymore?
Ann56789 on 8/8/2018
don’t like that they took the todo list off
shupedogg1014 on 8/7/2018
I love Google Classroom- I have used it for a few years now- I would love to see a portfolio features so students can build them based on their grades work.
Classwork Update
Katiekoolz on 8/7/2018
I’ve had his app for a few years now and most of my teachers use it. It’s helpful to be able to access work that my teachers put up quickly and without needing a chromebook. However as of late there’s been an update where a new “Classwork” tab has been introduced. I have updated the app to its current version however every time i open up this app, a small pop up shows telling me i need to update. When i click the update button it just takes me to the app store but nothing changes. I did delete the app yesterday and redownload it. Though that solution didn’t last. The first time I opened the app after redownloading it the “classwork” tab was there but when i open it today it is back to pop ups and no update.
I don’t like school
Lpsib23 on 8/6/2018
This is school related and my mom forced me to get it I hate school honestly but I mean other than it being school related it’s a good app
Leapardstalker on 8/6/2018
Great app
Adamk0902123 on 7/29/2018
This is amazing since most of my classes use google classroom, but could you add archived classes? I have videos in my old orchestra classes that i want to hear but to listen to them i have to use the google classroom on my laptop, i would rather have it on my phone because i can listen to it whenever i want. Please add the archived classes feature.
CrazyBean1621 on 7/27/2018
This app is pretty good. It is a tad slower to load images and videos up than on the computer, but if your school uses Google Classroom, you should get it to know if you have homework or not that day.
Google classroom: to small and hard work with
Thanks Nintendo on 7/22/2018
To be honest if you are planning to install google classroom in any of your phones for your job or school. Please install google classroom on a tablet, Computer or laptop because using it on a phone will make the screen look too small and hard to work with.
Student Review
Fun__Sized on 7/12/2018
Google Classroom has come a long way in the past few months with all the useful updates. I had many image-heavy assignments that became easier to manage after optimizations with things like zooming in. Also, if you add files to an assignment and close the app, they’ll still be there when you go to turn them in. They’ll also be there if you add them from a browser. Very handy for working between home and school. Under each assignment, you’re given a choice of making a new Google Doc, which is very convenient. Even after you turn something in, you can still edit what files the teacher will eventually get. Cheating is reduced by automatically making the teacher the file owner after clicking “Turn In” (no last-minute editing to documents), and with text indicating if it is complete and on time. With Classroom, it’s the little things that make it awesome. If you’re a teacher, I highly recommend this. Classroom makes it easy for students to turn in their projects without dealing with lost emails or size limits. Grading is also less of a pain, since you can arrange each student’s work in a grid. These can then be flipped through, with options for zooming in. Out of all the sites my teachers have made us use for turning in anything, this is by far the easiest. *Suggestion*: report buttons for comments. There are seemingly no automatic filters for class comments on assignments, meaning students (more often than not) post whatever they want. The teachers can block comments altogether, but when they don’t it’s a free-for-all. Although this won’t solve everything, this can help alert the teacher to any inappropriate comments without spoiling it for everyone else. Also, as far as I recall Classroom lacks dedicated features for group projects... Kind of a big deal since some classes have a lot of them.
Great homeschool tool
jflade on 7/9/2018
This is so helpful with homeschooling especially for more than one child. This has changed the way that we homeschool! I’m able to plan the week in advance and set scheduled post dates for my kids. This allows us to be 90% paper free (: which is great!! I love that I can attach documents and YouTube videos to the posts. I haven’t found anything like this before and I’ve been searching for a while for something along these lines! Great product!
I only am rating this bad cuz u hate school sooo...
Dogfish scheduled on 7/8/2018
this associates with school so can it plz go away k. thx. bye.
Where’s the comments?
⛸skatergirl❄️ on 6/21/2018
I really like this app but sometimes on my phone I’ll get a notification that someone commented on an assignment but then when I go to the comments section there’s nothing there. This is really annoying please fix it.

Screw you dude on 6/14/2018
It would be nice to group things on classroom like drive. Thanks.
A new bug?
Jameskay67 on 6/8/2018
I can no longer send items to Classroom from Safari or from Photos. The choice is there under the share button, but there is no send button!
Google Classroom NEEDS cheating feature!
Ian N. on 6/6/2018
Google Classroom is an awesome app. But as a teacher, I’ve noticed it makes it easier for students to share, and copy and paste each other’s work. Would be great if teachers got an alert when work has been copied or has similarities. Please make it happen Google!
Amazing google classroom
Happyluba on 6/5/2018

Studens Have Oppinions Too on 5/31/2018
Im a student working with this program and its quite enjoyable to use and it shortens the amount of paper since you can assign homework on the app.

Lonnie58392537 on 5/23/2018
the app is great but I think you need to add a messagepad to talk to the teachers and sometimes the students
Speed-God on 5/20/2018
It’s cool
Where is the mail?!
IM MAD. VERY MAD on 5/18/2018
It’s a great app but on the iPad you can’t mail/text to your friends. Pls add this because soon I’m only gonna use it on the computer.
makeitsimpler on 5/17/2018
Is there a way to print directly from classroom vs. having to download Docs, transfer the document there, preview and then actually print it? It would be nice to have a simple, embedded print button which wouldn’t be that hard, would it?
Not perfect but pretty good
pfft definitely NOT a robot on 5/17/2018
It works, but it can get pretty hard trying to find the exact file in google drive that I need. Also it wouldn’t really work with non-google applications and if you don’t have all the apps, then it’s pretty hard. It can get tricky sometimes trying to figure it out, but overall pretty good.
Hannahthebannah on 5/16/2018
I use it all the time for school and is AMAZING
Great tool but can be laggy and slow on my iPhone 6s and my iPad at times
AAAAAZZ1 on 5/16/2018
Sometimes I notice a little bit of lag and sometimes slow but terribly but still great to check my homework and stuff.
At school, we use LOTS of tools. One of them is Google Classroom. It has all we need. Big thank you!
