What Is Teachers' Classes
This site was put together by Mr. Ausman for his students and other teachers that would be interested. The open source software that runs it is used by major universities and other schools to bypass the high cost of industrial programs such as Blackboard and School Loop. Although, not as sophisticated as these programs it offers all the elements necessary to run a student/parent communication program and much more.
It can offer more because the software is a distance learning program that allows students to take classes over the Internet. Students can have blogs, wikiis, teams, quizes/tests, and immediate feedback. The course is designed by the teacher.
