“Working with Christel is always a pleasure. Her videos are fun to work on and allow me to be very creative with the ever-changing topics of her education series. Mixing video and animation allows parents and teachers to really understand the teaching activities instructed in each video in the easiest way possible.”

-Chris Quintero, Animator / Videographer, Rock Paper Simple

Connected Class owner, Christel Reaves, came to Rock Paper Simple with her existing company, Christel Clear Learning. When she explained that her business name was confusing, we collaborated with her to come up with a new name and logo to represent how her unique online platform connects the educator, students, and parents.

When Christel sought to update and upgrade her platform, the Rock Paper Simple team developed a plan to implement a massive overhaul of her incredibly broad education based site.  Working closely with the client, the Rock Paper Simple team revamped her robust online support system for educators and parents.  Connected Class is an online platform which uses videos, coaching, activities and communication tools to support educators, administrators, and parents with their K-12 students. It uses a Learning Management System (LMS) as well as a membership platform for sharing a vast array of tools that assist in engaging, and even entertaining to connected students more closely to the learning process and therefore, their classroom!

Connected Class has the unique model of offering educational resources to teachers so they can then in turn share that with their children in the home environment. Since the primary audience is children and their parents the videos needed to have a fun energy and style to it including animated motion graphics, hand drawn effects, and cartoons that kept the audience member engaged in the game or activity. Since one of the primary components of the Connected Class service is videos, over 80 videos have been completed in different styles from how to tutorials, storybook animations, and math games with cards, dice, and dominoes.
