Google Classroom is a learning management system developed by Google for schools. It aims to simplify, distribute and classify homework in a dematerialized way. It was introduced as a feature of G Suite for Education on May 6, 2014, followed by its release on August 12, 2014. In June 2015, Google announced a Classroom API and share button for websites, allowing administrators developers and developers to engage more Google Classroom. In March 2017, Google opened Classroom to allow all Google users to access courses without the need for a G Suite for Education account. In April, any Google staff member was able to create and teach a course.
Google Classroom combines Google Drive for creating and distributing assignments, Google Docs, Sheets and Slides for writing, Gmail for communication and Google Calendar for planning.
Students may be invited to take courses in the school’s database, using a private code, or be automatically imported from a school domain. Each class creates a separate folder in the user’s drive, where the student can submit to a note. Mobile apps, available for iOS and Android devices, allow users to take photos and attach them to tasks, share files from other apps, and access offline information. Teachers can progress to each student, and after being graded, teachers can return the work, with comments, so that the student can review and improve the task. Teachers can post announcements in a class stream, where students can comment.
G Suite for Education, it does not display ads for Google Classroom users and does not collect data or information for advertising purposes. This has been disputed. Google stopped analyzing student Gmail messages in April 2014. The following was published in December 2015 and April 2017
