ClassConnect: Silicon Valley startup, ClassConnect, is seeking teachers to take part in its beta program. ClassConnect aims to do many of the LMS services that Blackboard offers: teachers and students can keep track of assignments from multiple classes, share data, key records (grades and attendance) and "interactive lectures" (a nifty feature embeds live webpages in a slideshow), all in a social environment. Started by former Illinois students and their high school chemistry teacher. About 1,000 teachers use version 1.0 of the product. Want to give it a go? Drop a note to Eric@classconnect.com--but name your beta terms first!
