A virtual classroom is a learning space where both teachers and students can see, hear and interact with students in real-time via the internet.
Here's what the LearnCube virtual classroom looks like:
What are the key characteristics:
Teachers and students can see and hear each other (live video/audio streaming)
Students can ask questions and teacher can provide info/links (via the chatbox)
Teachers can upload multiple lesson materials into the whiteboard (via inbuilt lesson library). Screen-share with interactive overlay is also possible.
Participants engage on the whiteboard at the same time (i.e. practice together - write, draw, watch videos, etc)
LearnCube also provides rich insights and data about behaviour, learning and interactions... effectively "opening up" the classroom for administrators and business owners wanting to ensure quality education.
