ClassIn: Introduction to ClassIn

Let’s give a big welcome to Ivy from SuperTeacher booking system, who has very generously put together this free ClassIn course for Abridge Academy! She will be guiding you step-by-step through using all the key features of this popular online teaching platform.

Unlike business conferencing software such as Zoom, ClassIn is specifically designed for online teaching. It is one of the most popular online classroom software programs in China and rapidly gaining recognition worldwide.


  • Specifically designed for online teaching.
  • Built-in games and activities, including quizzes, dice, virtual science experiments, etc.
  • Reorganise your students’ faces on the screen, including positioning over your slides (e.g. to set up a dialogue) or creating debate-style layouts.
  • Students can interact directly with slides during screen sharing.
  • Option to browse the web or directly upload slides and files to the classroom itself, rather than just screen sharing.
  • Built-in rewards system (give students “trophies” as prizes).
  • Built-in feedback system which automatically sends class stats to students after class.
  • Out-of-class messaging and scheduling system.
  • Available on computers, iPads and mobile devices.
  • Save lesson recordings to your computer.


  • Screen sharing options are quite limited.
  • It can be quite “clunky” to allow students to interact directly with slides using ClassIn’s “give mouse control” option.
  • The free version restricts classes to just 40 minutes and a maximum of two students. 
  • The full range of features, particularly the “give mouse control” tool during screen sharing, are only available if both you and your students are on computers.
  • ClassIn is very resource intensive – you and your students need a computer with good processing power and fast Wifi.

Premium account features

  • Unlimited duration for classes
  • Record lessons to the cloud (more convenient for sharing with students)
