In-Person & Online Classes

Wet Ink supports both in-person and online classes equally well.

Students of an in-person class also benefit greatly from all the features of Wet Ink: have a continued connection with each other even when not physically co-located, get an archive of all the feedback at the end of the class, and weekly summaries. An in-person class also needs a way to manage assignments, critiques, etc.

In today's world of constant connectivity, students have expectations to stay connected with their class even beyond the class meeting times.
