EasyClass – Learning Management System

February 25, 2014


EasyClass – Learning Management System
http://easyclass.com/

We now live in a digital age and today’s learners have different needs. Learning doesn’t just take place in the classroom, but outside of it as well. Easyclass is a Learning Management System (LMS) that allows educators to create digital classes whereby they can store the course materials online; manage class discussions; give assignments, quizzes and exams; monitor due dates; grade results and provide students with feedback all in one place. Their tools provide unique opportunities for the instructors to engage students in various activities and offer a new dimension for interaction and efficient learning. Easyclass sets out to disrupt the Learning Management System (LMS) industry by creating an easy to use, yet powerful solution that will be the new standard for open technology in education. They believe that an LMS shouldn’t be a closed system; rather, it should be a platform that connects everyone in education and promotes anytime, anyplace learning. Their services are truly free and will remain free. Easyclass marks the opening of a new era in education as we aim to democratize global education among the learning community by giving FREE access to the platform.

Threema – Seriously Secure Mobile Messaging

Threema – Seriously Secure Mobile Messaging
https://threema.ch/

Threema is a mobile messaging app that puts security first. With true end-to-end encryption, you can rest assured that only you and the intended recipient can read your messages. Unlike other popular messaging apps (including those claiming to use encryption), even they as the server operator have absolutely no way to read your messages. Features include: a) End-to-end encryption – All encryption happens on your device, and asymmetric cryptography ensures that only the intended receiver can read your messages; b) Synchronize contacts – Find your friends on Threema automatically by synchronizing your contacts. Or add them manually if you prefer – it’s your choice; c) Share media – Send photos, videos and your current location with the same encryption grade as your text messages; and d) Scan IDs – Don’t trust any third party with key exchange — scan your friends’ IDs right within the app the next time you meet them.
