classroom.cloud has made virtual teaching much easier. I can see when a student is not on task and help them by accessing their assignments, because I can see their screens in real time! The message tool is so valuable when a student is having connection issues and keeps dropping off the video call. You can message their Chromebook directly to give instructions or help.
classroom.cloud represents high educational quality and is proven to promote learning efficiently…In classroom.cloud, teachers have a wide range of tools to manage the classroom actions and are able to produce versatile tasks and contents to support remote lessons… Using classroom.cloud lets the teacher focus on teaching as they can be confident of what their students are doing with their devices.
classroom.cloud as a platform is very easy to install and use, and does not require an overly complex hardware specification. The solution has helped our teachers to monitor students, keep them focused and to maximize the way in which technology is being used in school.
As a previous local authority Service Manager for 360 schools I have been a fan of the use of behaviour management and monitoring software since the earliest days; as an online safety specialist working in schools nationally for the last 11 years I know how vital these tools can be as an additional tool to safeguard children and young people. Recently I had the opportunity to take a deep-dive into classroom.cloud; tools such as this need to be easy to use and managed by non-technical people, equally they need to be able to fit the particular and diverse needs of individual schools. Overall, I was left very impressed, particularly in relation to the granularity of management options which can be tailored to fit individual school requirements and its ease of use. If tailored to fit the individual needs of the school and used correctly, classroom.cloud will be a significant benefit to safeguarding students.
classroom.cloud allows students who might be more self-conscious about speaking in front of their peers to ask for help privately. Not only does this reduce feelings of anxiety, but it also empowers them to receive the support they need and meet their goals.
Frankly, your software/interface is so incredibly well thought out & simple, the setup and deployment was not hard at all!
So classroom.cloud has helped in two ways. It’s helped us to have a greater control of what learners are doing with their Chromebooks and certainly helped to improve behaviour for learning. But arguably, more importantly, it’s helped in terms of the pedagogy and how we use technology within the classroom to improve pedagogy as well, where teachers are able to demonstrate really effectively different aspects of their subject using technology, but certainly using classroom.cloud as a vehicle to make demonstrations clearer, more beneficial for learners and certainly to help improve outcomes of learners as well.
We chose classroom.cloud because we needed a platform which helped our teachers easily monitor pupils’ activities and progress – allowing us to keep them on track with their learning. It also works both inside and outside the classroom, which is really reassuring given the times.
Teacher feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with staff commenting on how intuitive and easy it is to use. Through a combination of its assessment, tracking, classroom management and continuity features, the platform frees up valuable time for teachers to do what they do best: teach.
classroom.cloud has made it possible to focus on the academics rather than the technology while learning virtually!
classroom.cloud is precisely the classroom management solution we were looking for – it is ideal for both the assisting and monitoring of students.

Certified pedagogical quality
“classroom.cloud represents high educational quality and is proven to promote learning efficiently.”
Education Alliance Finland
classroom.cloud has been extensively evaluated by Education Alliance Finland (EAF), which conducts product impact evaluations based on global quality standards for learning solutions. EAF’s report concluded that:
- In classroom.cloud, teachers have a wide range of tools to manage the classroom actions and are able to produce versatile tasks and contents to support remote lessons.
- Using classroom.cloud lets the teacher focus on teaching as they can be confident of what their students are doing with their devices.
- classroom.cloud gives good tools for teacher-student communication and lowers the threshold of asking for help (also in distance learning).
Teaching and learning strategies
classroom.cloud supports a range of teaching and learning strategies, including direct instruction, metacognition, self-regulation, feedback, and formative assessment – to name just a few!
classroom.cloud reinforces learners’ metacognitive regulation with its supportive features, including help request and sharing of learning objectives or a list of approved sites for the lesson. It also helps learners to make informed choices, speeds up time in finding appropriate resources, and avoids distractions that increase cognitive load. It also supports learners practising and selecting appropriate metacognitive approaches by shepherding them to make useful choices about their technology approaches to tasks, such as through web, app and Teams chat monitoring.
classroom.cloud’s sharing and monitoring features mean you can easily guide learners through worked examples and gradually increase their independence as their confidence (and correctness) increase. Plus, it enables easy formal, informal and formative assessment throughout the learning process.
classroom.cloud’s app and web monitoring support self-regulated learning activities in the classroom by keeping learners only on the sites and tools they need to complete their tasks. Meanwhile, its screen blocking automatically diverts learners’ attention where it’s needed – most often on the teacher at the front of the class – without waiting and without fuss.
Feedback and formative assessment
Teachers can easily see where learners are struggling. They can quickly intervene and address misconceptions as they’re happening by seeing every learner’s screen and what tools and sites they’re using. It also facilitates ‘in the moment feedback’ on their progress via low-stakes polling, quizzing, and reward badges. Plus, using whiteboards is part of a normal classroom routine; using digital tools as their whiteboards, classroom.cloud is perfect to support this formative assessment activity whilst viewing student screens.

classroom.cloud has been extensively evaluated by Education Alliance Finland (EAF), which conducts product impact evaluations based on global quality standards for learning solutions. EAF reported that “classroom.cloud represents high educational quality and is proven to promote learning efficiently” and awarded it the following ratings:
How will it help increase student engagement?
Students engage in lessons in multiple ways, and individualized instruction/tools allow for better overall engagement. classroom.cloud provides students with several different options for engagement:
- Survey – Rather than the tradition model of asking and raising hands, teachers can gamify assessment/gauging student understanding by using survey. Using the random mode helps ensure students are picked fairly – and keep them on their toes!
- Help request – For students who are more introverted, the help request feature allows them to directly ask for assistance without the pressure of other students knowing they need help. This opens the door for them to engage with the teacher in a manner that makes them comfortable.
- Chat and messaging – Teachers can facilitate 1:1 chats with students and send messages to selected students, creating new ways of staying connected and boosting communicating with the class. Students at home can still participate, increasing their overall feeling of engagement in learning.
- Lock screens – Behaviour management is important in every classroom however it can be challenging when students are ‘in the zone’ whilst using technology. Locking students’ screens is great for keeping students on task and keeping the focus on the teacher when explaining tasks.
How will this be differentiated and allow for personalized learning?
All of classroom.cloud’s interaction tools (chat, messaging, surveys, launching of web/apps and allowed website lists) can be applied to the class or adapted for individual students, allowing the teachers to personalise each student activities/learning.
The EAF reported “classroom.cloud can be used to set equal learning paths for all users or the teacher can provide differentiated instructions and contents for different students”.
How does classroom.cloud foster dialogue and empowerment among our students?
The platform allows the student to work independently, yet ask for help from the teacher online. The teacher can provide a wide range of pre-curated materials and tools for the students to work with, enabling the students to create their own goals and paths for learning.
