Our mission is to connect students and instructors. We do that by embracing the power of web video.
NowLesson creates a community where instructors and students can find each other and participate in live classes over two-way video. Classes are interactive, giving personal feedback to participants. And they are happening at all hours of the day, to fit with our users' busy lives.

Startups take a lot of work and require the help of many friends. Thanks to Ben, Dan, Gene, Liat, Gary, Guy and Lindsay for being some of the very first beta testers. Thanks to Sachin, Rahul, Dennis and Val for many long conversations hashing out the business. A huge amount of gratitude goes to Jian and Raymond who not only have exceptional product development skills, but also graciously applied them to this project. And a most special thanks to Lindsay for putting up with a lot in the name of NowLesson.
