Collaborize Classroom Is Bringing Innovation Into the Classroom With a Free Online Learning Platform

Democrasoft Supports Education With a Focus on Student Engagement

SANTA ROSA, CA--(Marketwire - January 11, 2011) -  Democrasoft, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: DEMO) announced today the official launch of Collaborize Classroom™, a free online learning platform where teachers can extend discussions happening inside the classroom to a structured and private online community. Students can also interact with online lesson plans that allow for deeper participation inside and outside the classroom.

Collaborize Classroom is not meant to replace traditional in-class instruction. Instead, it is a free online learning platform aimed to complement classroom activities to achieve increased engagement, comprehension and participation, using a medium with which students are familiar. 

Collaborize Classroom was recently named one of the "Top Fantastic Free Online Social Media Tools for Teachers" by social media news website Mashable, and was quoted by the education blog, iLearningTechnology.com, making it an emerging educational technology to watch for. As a result of these mentions and the need for an online learning platform that is within school budgets, registrations for Collaborize Classroom have significantly increased over the past several months.

Additionally, Democrasoft® has teamed up with education-focused organizations such as the California Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (CASCD), Gifts-In-Kind-International and the Kids in Need Foundation, to bring Collaborize Classroom to schools and teachers across the country. 

According to Democrasoft CEO Richard Lang, the company has initiated a unique sponsorship program that enables teachers to use Collaborize Classroom for free. "We are thrilled that our Collaborize Classroom platform has been so well-received by both teachers and students. We are especially excited because helping education is in direct alignment with our corporate mission "social networking with purpose."
