RESTON, Va. and Washington, D.C. — October 26, 2021— Class Technologies Inc., the company transforming virtual education by adding teaching and learning tools to Zoom, and Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider®, today announced that Carahsoft will distribute Class software to the U.S. Public Sector.
Built on the Zoom Meetings platform, Class offers K-12 and Higher Education institutions and Government agencies everything they need to facilitate instruction and improve engagement in the virtual classroom. Class replicates the best of in-person learning and enables instructors to virtually perform many of the activities that happen in a real classroom. These include the ability to track attendance and participation, deliver assignments and quizzes, automatically grade work, and enhance learner engagement through individual and group facilitation. Class reduces the friction associated with using disparate tools to teach and learn online.
“The addition of Class to our Learning Technology Group allows us to provide K-12 and Higher Education institutions with solutions that enrich, connect, and improve virtual teaching and learning environments,” said Craig P. Abod, Carahsoft President. “We look forward to working with Class and our resellers to transform online classrooms through the Zoom Meetings platform.”
Carahsoft serves as the Master Government Aggregator® and largest worldwide distributor for Zoom, and now as Class’ selected distributor, Carahsoft will expand the company’s North American footprint by bringing its software to Government and Education markets through its robust reseller network. Carahsoft will lead the effort to add Class software to an extensive list of government procurement vehicles and contracts, thus making the purchasing process quicker and easier.
“State, county, and district education leaders are searching for tools to enhance engagement and improve student outcomes across hybrid and virtual settings, which is precisely the reason we developed Class,” said Michael Chasen, education software pioneer and Class co-founder and CEO. “Carahsoft has demonstrated a long-term commitment to serving the public education sector with best of breed learning and video communications platforms, and we’re very pleased to partner with the same team that has successfully grown Zoom’s public sector.”
Class Technologies software is available through Carahsoft’s NCPA Contract NCPA01-86, OMNIA Partners Contract #R191902, Office of General Services - New York Contract #22802, and through the company’s reseller partners.
