How I Use It
This platform is very similar to Google Classroom, but allows for teachers to connect assignments to their gradebook.
My Take
This tool has all of the functions of Google Classroom. You can create assignments, share links, create quizzes, and assess work. It is slightly easier to organize than Google Classroom with the way you can set up folders. However, overall it is less user friendly, and sometimes difficult to navigate. I think the quiz feature is not as useful as Google Classroom. I miss the ability to populate results in a spreadsheet. However, I think if you are used to Google Classroom you will find that this has a similar functionality. The biggest "pro" is the ability to connect the assignment to your real-time grade book, so any work that is graded electronically is automatically entered, saving time.
