What is The Class Wall?The Class Wall is an easy-to-use web application that allows classrooms to securely and easily share and communicate. Teachers can post up coursework, study guides, online tests & quizzes, grades, school photos and videos, or any other type of media! Students can communicate privately amongst themselves, or in an open forum where the instructor may step in and answer questions. "Observers" (parents, friends and relatives) can also easily keep watch and/or participate. The realtime messaging system allows students to chat one-on-one or in group chat rooms. Additionally, the offline messaging system allows them to send notes to each other, and allows teachers to send notes to the class, similar to a traditional email system.
