If I continue to have so many suggested improvements, why don't I just go and use any other CMS (classroom management system)? Simply because my students would kill me!
The ease of use of Classroom by students who are not all particularly tech-savvy (or weren't at the start of this year!) means it has now quickly become irreplaceable in my English lessons. The ability to post to mobile via desktop, to allow comments from students and most cool of all, the "assignment" management elements ensure that a paper-scared teacher such as myself has seen a dramatic drop in subject-related academic workload. Furthermore, the "announcement" feature enables students to increasingly work at their own pace and also ensures that students late or absent from class can access lesson content where-ever, when-ever they want. By the way, the ability to post announcements via a mobile platform means that even on the way to class, I can post my Do Now and the learning activities for the day literally as I walk into the classroom.
Now as I said at the beginning, Classroom's imperfections are why it works. I love the fact that Google are consistently pushing out new, innovative updates, in the most part due to teacher feedback and demand. We don't have to wait for the annual software release or a service pack update (remember those?). If we had to wait until Google had perfected Classroom, the majority of us would have retired by its eventual release date. The fact that Classroom is consistently evolving ensures its relevancy in the classroom by teachers and students.
Now...what about that search function, Google?
