    I like It, It is very useful to send document as homework.

    Good new feature. Question: Is this going to work while in the classroom or would we have to leave the room to send the file through messages?

    With Skype, Zoom, etc. there's no need for a classroom, let alone additional features that are already in those apps.

    You keep adding useless features while ignoring teachers' requests.

    I guess that no one at Italki has ever taught online.

    From today, I'm being forced to use this stupid interface with a countdown instead of time.

    Oh, I have a lesson in 15 hours! Uh?

    When I have two lessons on the same day, one as a teacher and one as a student, I need to check two pages instead of one.

    This would be good if the italki classroom had worked for me.  But I've tried it with students two times, it didn't work correctly with the audio/visual--and we switched to SKYPE.  Believe me, I wish the classroom would work.  Thanks.

    I already do this with Skype. Am I missing something?

    How is this different?

    This may only be good for students who do not have skype or another platform and use the italki class.

     

    Stefano the Polyglot There are some students who only use italki class and cannot open links.

     

    Instant was very useful for both students and teachers. 

     

    Having two pages for each is a waste of time. 

     

    Now when we see feedback we can't see the profile of who wrote.

     

    It's annoying to see the count instead of the time. 

     

    Seeing the cheapest class instead of the price for an hour is not convenient.

    hey italki instead of developing this kind of marginal thing, how about listening to literally everyone who uses this website and bringing back instant tutoring?

    Which formats are allowed for sending audios ? I can send .wav audios but not .mp3 audios, it is weird.

    I have tried italki classroom twice and couldn't screen share either time.  I'd like that working properly before adding new features.

    Several of my students have reported back that they could not download the pdf-files I had shared. When I sent the exact same files via Zoom it worked fine for them. 

    I also wish that classroom would work properly, every so often I experience problems with screen sharing.

    Please add Zoom as a selectable communication platform.

    Zoom would really be good, but the teacher has to pay for it. I think it’s about $20 monthly. It’s free for up to two people talking for less than 40 minutes.

    Teachers! Does the italki classroom share the sounds? I am afraid when I need to play a sound file to my students, I ought to go to other platforms like Skype or Zoom. Do you all use it when sharing sound files?

    I don't know; I only use SKYPE and may use Zoom possibly.

    Hi Safy - I have never had a student choose the italki classroom.  In fact, one student tried it with another teacher and said it didn't work.  Good luck to all of us - Ilene
