Really cool. My girlfriend is a teacher and has been using drive and other google tools in her class for a while now. Great to see google create more features specifically for that use case. She's pretty pumped.

Most existing LMS tools are totally dated, expensive, and inadequate. While I'm excited that Google is helping to provide a base for learning, I hope they're able to continue to develop the platform as education continues to evolve.

@epicsaurus it would be good if they expanded it to a corporate setting also
Joe Mahavuthivanij@epicsaurus · Product Generalist
@_jacksmith Yup, most definitely. I used to work at an edtech company trying to build something like Classroom a year ago but because of the specifics of their pedagogy, it was difficult to build anything less than a custom product for their use case. I hope Classroom catches on in both the classroom and the personal development/continuing education space.

This is almost exactly how I imagined the ideal online classroom management system would work. Add to that the fact that it's made by a well known name like Google, and I could see the historically luddite-oriented education system adopting this.

Can't wait to try this out on a course I teach when it's available to all. Love that Google is taking a swing at this problem.
