Google Classroom vs LMS

Some educators say that Google Classroom is not a Learning Management System (LMS). In fact it is better than traditional LMS, because google classroom makes it easy for students and lecturers to connect—inside and outside of lecture rooms.

You can still use our LMS based on Moodle at lms.sjp.ac.lk   to distribute your  presentations (PowerPoint slides) while Google Classroom based on Google Apps (Drive, Docs, Slides, Forms, GMail, YouTube) can be used to interact with students and to grade assignments.
