So you might want to call Chalkup a “learning management system” because we do all of the things that LMSs do. Okay, fine. But we have to tell you: we hate learning management systems.
We don’t think education is something that should be “managed” and that’s not how we designed Chalkup. Instead, we call ourselves a “class collaboration platform,” because that’s what we’re all about: connecting classrooms, sparking collaboration, and finding new and innovative ways to work together.
(Fun story: Chalkup was founded in a dorm room in 2013 when we were frustrated by the lack of collaboration functionality in our school's technology. We got a team together and made our own system, which focused on class discussion, resource sharing, and connecting students. Bam. Chalkup was born.)
So as you start to learn about our platform and engage with the Chalkup community, we hope you’ll forget what you know about learning management and find new ways to engage your class. Our team is thrilled to get you started.
