Virtual Classroom

Virtual classroom sessions are an excellent way to bring life and engagement to online learning. They also provide a way to support some of the key aspects learners love about face-to-face classroom settings (live discussions, debates, group work, role play, etc.).

Virtual classrooms can enhance interaction and build a sense of community among learners of online or blended courses.
