A Designing of Google Classroom as an Online Productive Flipped Classroom Tool
Abstract— Flipped classroom is an effective learning approach which promotes students’ learning
performances based on individual learning differences. And it focuses on educators’ learning materials and
knowledge tools providing to learners. This paper aims to propose a designing of Google classroom as an
online flipped learning management tool for twelfth-graded students. The classroom is developed by Google
which helps instructors manage their flipped classes effectively. The tools allow many functions of managing
the classes and of providing applications of Google for Education. The applications for education include an
online Google drive storage, documents management (Google Doc, Google Sheet and Google Slide),
messages and notification of classroom activities (Gmail), and so on. The research tool was developed by the
Google classroom following 5 steps of Waterfall model including requirements, design, implement, testing,
and maintenance. The result shows that the flipped classroom management is depended on 4 components as
follows; 1) classroom management, 2) students management, 3) learning management, and 4) students’ tasks
management. This kind of online classroom management concept had been reviewed and proved to be
appropriate and effective by three academic experts.
