There is no convenient solution for designers to teach online at the moment. The majority of producers duct-tape together disparate technologies to give critical class features like scheduling, money, community, statistics, and video conferencing. Klas has a seamless integration of all of this. Klas aspires to become the Shopify of online education.
During a five-month hiatus owing to the loss of his right eye, Nathan, the company’s 18-year-old CEO and co-founder conceived the idea while looking for an easy approach to teach Physics online.
