Class Software Adds Teaching and Learning Tools to Zoom and Replicates Real Classroom Environments
Rome, Italy (September 9th, 2021) – MediaTouch 2000 and U.S. based education technology company, Class Technologies Inc., today announced the launch of Class software in the Italian market.
Class adds teaching and learning tools on top of Zoom to make the online classroom feel like a real classroom environment. MediaTouch 2000, now an official reseller of Class software, is already working with higher education institutions, and corporations, to implement Class software in Italy.
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.
“Class was the EdTech product that was missing, not only in MediaTouch general offering, but in the whole virtual class scenario. We are quite excited to have the chance to offer such an innovative product to our clients.” – Emanuela Cappelli, CEO at MediaTouch 2000
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.
“We fast-tracked the development of Class because we knew how many people needed our help. We’re pleased to partner with MediaTouch 2000 to bring Class to Italy.” – Michael Chasen, co-founder and CEO of Class.
The partnership between Class Technologies Inc. and MediaTouch 2000 comes after the software’s launch in the U.S. Since the software’s introduction, Class has raised more than $58 million dollars and has received interest from academic institutions and corporations around the world.
