New SysClass plans to help break down the barriers to education both in the US and internationally with a free web-based online learning platform. It is the most advanced system ever created to offer online courses in the US and abroad. It promises simplified multi-lingual translation to make the world your classroom.

Creators of this revolutionary yet simple teaching platform have just launched a global crowdfunding campaign via Indiegogo to help everyone have free access. The concept started when HSBC, the world’s second largest bank, asked this company to develop a training program for IBM Super Computers. The challenge was training hundreds of students in a short period of time when most students lacked the resources to pay. They needed an economical solution for underprivileged students– a solution that allowed students to sign in from their home, library or school. The answer was delivering online courses via the SysClass platform. Now, those behind the SysClass success want to take it a step further and overcome geographic and linguistic barriers for education on a global scale.

“The success we had gave us a crazy idea. … Why not develop an open version of SysClass that would allow anyone to use it for free? But, how can a small company like ours develop an entire new system and provide servers without the support at no cost?” This is where small and big donors via the crowdfunding Indiegogo campaign come in. Take advantage of perks for donations at all different price points for anyone who believes in the importance of education in shaping a better tomorrow. Perks start at $5 (less than a cup of specialty coffee), for $20 you can have a custom flash drive. For the fashion-minded just $250 gets you a designer Polo shirt (Calvin Klein). Those wanting to get more leverage for their business for the investment can choose perks from $1,000 (gorgeous crystal Champion of Education Award) right up to $10,000 for a dedicated premium channel (where subject matter is hosted). Check out the site for all the cool reward details.

This technology has the power to revolutionize education and can be delivered anywhere with an internet connection. It shatters language barriers with the simple ‘automatic translation’ into most major languages. As the campaign site explains,“We created a wiki system that allows users to collaborate with a translation just by clicking on a word or phrase, changing it, and pressing ‘save’.” The open SysClass platform will enable instructors and institutions to create and deliver online courses to almost anyone in the world in any subject matter. Your dollars will go towards helping this small company fulfill their vision. Donations will go towards finalizing development of the open version of SysClass, and acquisition of servers and equipment necessary for a secure and fast environment.

With your help, SysClass plans to keep giving back to education globally for free. Even if you can’t donate – spread the word to everyone in your networks. Together let’s make a difference changing lives around the world.”
