Finding an app that helps you stay organized in the classroom, whether you’re a student looking to stay on top of your assignments, or a teacher organizing his or her assignments or even remaining in contact with your students can be an arduous task. That’s where Google Classroom steps in. Available for iOS and Android devices, this app helps keep you on top of any classroom task, whether it’s grading an assignment or sending a bulletin board notice to all of your students. For teacher, Google Classroom works by allowing you to generate a unique classroom code for students.
Google Classroom’s user interface is clean, minimalistic, and easy for anyone to use. This app also features multilanguage support for non-English speakers. It does a superb job of keeping multiple classes organized.
You can only access all the functionality of this app if you have a school-provided Google class code or a Google Apps for Education account, which may be costly if you’re not an educator.

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.
The simple, paperless assignment workflow allows teachers to create, review, and grade assignments quickly, all in one place.
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.
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.
