Nextwave (Thailand) and U.S.-based education technology company, Class Technologies Inc., today announced the launch of Class software in the Thailand market.
Class adds teaching and learning tools on top of Zoom to make the online classroom feel like a real classroom environment. Nextwave (Thailand), now an official reseller of Class software, is already working with K-12 and higher education institutions, and corporations, to implement Class software in Thailand.
Class recently announced it has raised a $105 million Series B funding round led by SoftBank’s Vision Fund 2. The financing will be used to accelerate the company’s growth and expand globally into new markets and brings total funding to over $160 million in under a year.
“It is a great opportunity for us to work with Class to help improve online learning during this pandemic and future education in Thailand. Through our partnership with Class, we are able to bring teachers and students together and take online learning to the next step,” said Krisada Cheevamongkol, CEO of Nextwave (Thailand).
Class is built on the Zoom Meetings platform and provides everything needed to facilitate instruction and improve learner engagement in virtual and hybrid classroom settings. The software adds teaching and learning tools to Zoom that enable instructors to perform many of the activities that happen in a real classroom, virtually. Some key activities supported by Class include taking attendance, handing out assignments, giving a quiz or test, grading, proctoring exams, and talking one-on-one with a student.
“As the father of three children, I know that by improving the virtual and hybrid learning experience, Class can make a real difference for millions of students and educators around the world,” said Michael Chasen, co-founder and CEO of Class. “We fast-tracked the development of Class because we knew how many people needed our help. We’re pleased to partner with Nextwave (Thailand) to bring Class to Thailand.”
The partnership between Class Technologies Inc. and Nextwave (Thailand) comes after the software’s launch in the U.S. Since the software’s introduction, Class has raised more than $160 million dollars and has received interest from academic institutions and corporations around the world.
