Showbie is a learning management system, similar to Google classroom. 

The major differences are that it is much easier to hand write on documents; this can be great for handwriting, math, foreign language or art. 

Another major difference is the ease of adding audio notes for both the student and the teacher; this an be great for younger grades, foreign languages, students who have a difficulty writing, and providing detailed feedback to students.
