Iíve gone 3 days without Google Classroom and Iím not a fan.

I want my Google Classroom back. Everything syncs seamlessly to it.

The end.

We hate Canvas! Not user friendly, takes 7,000 clicks to do anything. Itís ugly

I use Canvas too, but more like a web page for my life skills class. I made it nice looking so it wouldn't bug the crap out of me. The YouTube channel called "Canvas For Littles" was a lifesaver for me.

Iíve been watching those videos. Someone here (maybe you) recommended them.

I just donít understand paying for a platform at the elementary level when Google is free, syncs with everything and has all the features you need. Secondary is different. And Iím not just saying this because I spent 7-8 years learning Google and love it. Ok, maybe a little. But it doesnít make it less true.

Doesn't Canvas

sync with Google? Can't you create a button in Canvas to take them to Google classroom? (Blind leading the blind here, but this was my limited understanding.) We have Canvas, but I am not required (at this moment) to use it.

Change is hard. I wouldn't like leaving Google either. Why recreate things and make it tougher?

Maybe you can ask your admin if you can use it anyway if it is free. At my school, core class teachers use canvas, and arts teachers such as music, art, etc, are using Google classroom.

While I have gotten used to Canvas, I definitely donít love it.

Itís not super user friendly.

You CAN link Google classroom. Iím a classroom teacher so I use Canvas exclusively as it syncs with our grading platform and Google does not.

I, too, am using Canvas instead of GC this year and agree with all of the above. Everything takes so many clicks to accomplish. But, because of Covid, I wanted my students to have one less new thing to deal with, and the district uses Canvas. The only saving grace is Canvas is now synching with our gradebook. Other than that, I will take GC any day.
