One of the Best Online School !!!

5.0 5 days ago New

Comments: My overall experience with Google Classroom has been largely positive. Google Classroom offers an intuitive and user-friendly interface, making it easy for both educators and students to navigate and utilize its features. Also, the platform simplifies classroom management by providing tools for organizing assignments, facilitating communication, and managing student submissions.

Pros:

What I like most about Google Classroom is that it streamlines the management of classes by allowing teachers to digitally organize, distribute, and collect assignments and course materials. This reduces the administrative burden on teachers and keeps everything neatly organized and the integration with other Google tools, such as Google Docs, Sheets, and Meet.

Cons:

What I like least is just the inability to schedule assignments for multiple classes simultaneously.

I really loved my experience with this site, which lasted more than two years

3.0 last month New

Comments: It was a very good experience. I highly recommend it to anyone who needs the features that the site offers. For me, some of the flaws can be overlooked in light of the amount of features available, and it does not cost the person anything.
Everything is really organized perfectly

Pros:

What I loved most about it is the wonderful organization with high quality and the capabilities of bringing together large numbers in teams in a way that is not available in many other sites. It suits me in many situations, such as my studies and work, and I truly believe that any person currently, whether a student or an employee, will need it one day.

Cons:

What I liked least about the site is their slow customer service and response, and I think it does not befit the range of features on the site. The last thing was that if some of the ideas on it were developed using artificial intelligence, it would be more creative, although it really is not one of the best sites for me. The best of them

Fast access, high quality meetings and amazing features

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: I used Google Classroom for virtual classes in 2020 and 2021, now I mainly use it for meetings with friends that are in other countries, to record presentations and to attend meetings to prepare activities for the year.

Pros:

High quality of audio and video, accessing different features like a virtual whiteboard, you can create a meeting in less than 10 seconds.

Cons:

I can no longer record the meetings. I used to use Google Classroom to record videos for presentation.

Google Classroom Review by Certified Teacher in Texas

4.0 7 days ago New

Comments: I used it for two years and enjoyed it while I did. The students did as well. It's one of the better learning management systems out there on the market when cost is factored in.

Pros:

I like its ease of implementation. Google classroom also organizes your classes into sections which is helpful for organizational techniques.

Cons:

The layout was simplistic and could have had more visually stimulating centers.
