Classroom turns your Mac into a powerful teaching assistant, helping you guide students through a lesson, see their progress, and keep them on track. With Classroom, you can easily launch the same app on every student iPad at the same time or launch a different app for each group of students.

Apple really needs to make Classroom sync so that teachers can use it on their iPads and computers. It is incredibly inconvenient to have to make students join twice if you want to use it on both devices. It would also be great if teachers could block specific websites.
This app is not consistent. Most of the time it shows the kids are just sitting offline, but they are actually online.
This app doesn't work. I've been trying to make it work for an hour now. It is suppose to automatically find the student so you can add to the class and it should pop up in system preferences and whelp that didn't happen. It doens't pick up other macBooks so I am unable to add them to the class. It is a real bummer.
This needs to be able to be compatible with iPhones! It's much easier to walk around my room with my phone in my hand rather than my iPad. And...when I have a substitute in the room I can still monitor what they're doing from my phone.
I was excited about the release of this app. When I first signed in, I was disappointed to see that all of my classes from my iPad didn't appear on my Mac. I am a librarian and I don't want to set up thirty classes again. There also needs to be a way to manage MacBooks.
I was SO excited to download this once our school allowed the update. I was then SO disappointed to find out you can only manage student iPads and not student Macbooks! Please please please update!
