Today, we are announcing a partnership with WebSIA as the official reseller of Class in the Latin American market.
Class adds teaching and learning tools on top of Zoom to make the online classroom feel like a real classroom environment. WebSIA, now an official reseller of Class software, is already working with K-12 and higher education institutions, and corporations, to implement Class software in Brazil.
“With Class, we are able to replicate the engaging learning environment of an in-person classroom virtually during a time when Brazilian students need it the most,” said Rodrigo Leme Santos, Vice President of Innovation and Technology at WebSIA.
“Through our partnership with Class Technologies Inc., we are embracing the future of digital education, and we look forward to helping teachers and students as we continue to navigate the pandemic.”
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 WebSIA to bring Class to Brazil.”
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.
