I had an opportunity this past week to have an interview with Eric Simons of ClassConnect.com, an EdTech Startup that I feel is pretty great. Eric provided a little background information for us on where he got his start. He gained a little notoriety recently for the struggles that he was going through in starting up his company. But beyond that, it is indeed Eric’s product that will endure. Here Eric discusses ClassConnect.
You can see the full interview, including a video of Eric’s walk-through at Netcast Studio.
