Like lots of folks who have access to GoogleApps for Education, when OpenClass LMS opened up today, I jumped in to explore and took some screenshots to build a virtual tour. Since my biases are undoubtedly going to color my view of OpenClass, allow me to throw them out there in the interests of fair play:
- I’m looking for a feature-rich environment that is as modular and activity-heavy as Moodle.
- I’m looking for flexible creation environment that allows me to embed content from GoogleSites, GoogleCalendar, and other web-based, Read/Write resources and tools.
- I am looking for a drop-dead easy to use system.
After signing up, here’s what showed up in my email:

As you might guess from the visual tour, the Loading… messages never disappeared.
