yourClass Launches Marketplace For Live Online Classes

yourClass Launches Marketplace For Live Online Classes
Summary: yourClass is a marketplace for live education that empowers teachers, not institutions and beta invites will be going out in early Fall 2013. yourClass is backed by a passionate, multifunctional team that believes a quality education must come above all. yourClass is taking an innovative approach by offering a synchronous virtual classroom in a sea of asynchronous e-learning options.

Let’s face it: Education is broken. Institutions capture much of the value that teachers create in the classroom; the cost of education restricts access to those who need it most; and present e-learning solutions are mediocre at best. That’s about to change.

How yourClass Works

yourClass features a marketplace where anyone can teach a class on almost any subject. Live classes are free for both teachers and students. Live classes are also capped at 50 students per session. If you absolutely loved a class that you took live or you missed the live class and want the benefit of accessing a recorded version, yourClass offers forever-access for a fee that is set by and shared with the teacher. Teachers earn approximately 75% of revenue from class sales.

yourClass Features

At its core, yourClass is a virtual classroom that offers synchronous one-to-many and many-to-many live video. It has the standard virtual whiteboard, screensharing, notes, and raise-your-hand features that you’d expect to find in a virtual classroom, but it goes further. For instance, to help students build relationships with their classmates, student profiles incorporate information from social media profiles. When you click on a student’s profile, you’ll see their latest tweet, Facebook post, interests, and classes they’re teaching or they’re taking. It’s a wonderful way to create relationships in a virtual classroom.
