Two fresh graduates discussing classroom experiences in 2012 led to development of nClass. They saw proprietary hardware and software solutions being used which were more pain and offering little gain! There was a way to do this better using ubiquitous mobile and web devices. Mobile technology was quickly getting integrated with other activities then, so why not the classroom!
Instructors are not looking for a new tool just because it is mobile! They are looking for easier to use tools that simplifies the admin tasks. Millennials are already using Mobile devices for everything and expect more from institutions, which in turn are looking for economical options with quick ROI.
nClass version 1.0 was released in June 2013 and has been used in several classrooms since then. We continue to build and enhance the product. With institution budgets constrained and student finances already stretched with rising tuition and other expenses, one of the objectives from the beginning has been to keep the price economical and 100% inclusion i.e. support for various devices. In its simplest form, instructors and students can use nClass via a web browser on their computer.
With private investment(s), nClass has come a long way since inception and continues to grow. Read our blog to learn how to transform your classroom from a passive lecture into an interactive learning experience.
