Coursekit is an online product that wants to turn classes into a lively community online. Coursekit wants to make it easier for students and professors to share files — including images, office documents, and videos — on the equivalent of a Facebook wall.
Coursekit also features the ability for professors to embed in their calendars their course files so it’s easier to adjust the online syllabus if there is a change in their schedules.
The team at Coursekit believe that there’s a lot more to class than lecture. You can Post links, videos, files, start discussions and write a blog post. Ask about an assignment. Classes are meant to be social, but they rarely are. They want to change that.
Coursekit has raised $1 million in a seed round from investors like Founder Collective and IA Ventures.
