The Classroom platform is an e-learning system - based on the principle of blended learning - offering a suite of productivity programs that are flexible with core components of cloud computing, mobility, and data analysis. Hundreds of external applications meant for educational use work with Google Classroom such as YouTube, Google Docs, Google Mail, Task Manager, and Google Analytics to name just a few. These integrations save teachers and students time and make it seamless to share information between Classroom and their favorite apps.
