Classkick Expands onto the Web for Chromebooks and Traditional Computers

Classkick has expanded its collaborative assignment platform onto the Web. Previously, it was available only as an iOS app for iPad.

Classkick allows teachers to prepare digital assignments for students. Students then work on those assignments, while the teacher monitors activity. The teachers and other students are able to provide feedback on students' work..

For now, teachers will still need to use the iPad app to give students feedback and to create assignments. But both the Web and iOS versions are free for students to use. This Web version supports standard browsers and was launched in part to support the growing number of schools that are turning to relatively affordable Chromebooks to support student learning.

Classkick indicated that the teacher version will be coming to the Web as well, though no release date has been announced.

The company released a brief video illustrating how the iOS and Web versions of Classkick work together.

"Classkick was founded on the premise that good teaching and technology can close the achievement gap. We have a lot more work to do, but we're very excited to support affordable and equitable learning tools for all students." said Andrew Rowland, CEO of Classkick, in a prepared statement.

Classkick's COPPA statement and overall privacy policy are posted online. A sample Classkick assignment can also be found on the company's site.
