Today Chalkup unveiled the latest version of their innovative learning management system, launching the next chapter in the evolution of classroom technology.
With this unveiling comes a cadre of new tools, including an improved user experience, powerful course calendar, and an innovative new way for students to estimate their workload.
Chalkup has also enhanced teacher-provided course materials by allowing instructors to share videos, links, and flashcards, as well as files and media directly from Google Drive.
All the while, the platform continues to support blended learning and flipped classrooms.
Since its arrival in 2014, Chalkup has turned learning management systems on their head, categorizing themselves as “the class collaboration platform.” Chalkup’s slick design has proven both easy-to-use and effective, making it one of the most powerful tools for the modern classroom. It’s seamless integration with Google Apps for Education and unique tools for teachers and students have already set it apart from competitors.
"We feel like we've made the class collaboration tool that students and teachers have been waiting for," said Chalkup Co-Founder & CEO Justin Chando. “I believe that learning doesn’t stop when class is dismissed, and learning management systems weren’t creating an environment for classes to stay organized, share information, and truly keep talking. That’s why we made Chalkup.”
Classes are rapidly making the switch from their old LMS to Chalkup. Since it’s launch in May 2014, the product has become a success in over 70 countries and 2,500 schools.
"Chalkup is helping me transform my teaching,” said Middle School Science Teacher Lindsay Sereika of North Olmsted, OH. “There is so much potential for how to use it and I see the benefits for both teachers and students.”
