Comments from some of those who selected Google Classroom as one of their top tools

“This has been a game changer in the world of education. It makes collecting assignments and grading papers much more efficient, especially writing and language assignments. Instead of having 60 assignments floating around in my email, they are all in the right place and I can see who has turned things in and the live progress they have made on the assignment. I love how I can push out links to websites and articles quickly and easily, and feedback among students is a great feature to have available too.” Librarian, 2020
