Problems


During a hectic transition to virtual learning, SGM had tried popular videoconferencing platforms for online instruction, including Zoom and Google Class. However, educators quickly observed that it is challenging to make classes attractive and interactive, and as a result, students failed to actively participate in class.

  • Traditional videoconferencing software failed to support classroom interactions

  • Online classes were conducted in a “monotonous” way

  • Teachers end up spending more time searching for education-specific tools

Teachers credited ClassIn’s interactive features and demonstrated great enthusiasm in creative teaching materials such as EDB files. Outside the classroom, ClassIn supported various management needs and school functions. Additionally, instead of a one-time handoff, ClassIn’s 24/7 customer service team stayed keen on addressing concerns from SGM.
