Earlier, a simple board meeting required the physical presence of all involved people. It is stressful to the participants and causes a drop in productivity, since they have to travel from their distant and distinct geographical locations to the venue of such events.
But now, scheduled Online Classrooms, Events and Meetings are organised with the full participation of all members regardless of their geographical locations through the use of Online Virtual Classrooms.
A virtual classroom is a real-time replica of an online learning environment. In such an environment, students are fully immersed and communicate seamlessly with the teacher and other students, in the same way as they would in real life.
Here are some benefits of implementing Virtual Classroom in your Online Course:
- Free from Geographical Constraints
With Online Virtual Classroom, the geographic location of both teachers and students is inconsequential. The fundamental requirement is that both of them should have a computer/laptop or in some cases mobile devices, and a dependable source of internet access.
In traditional classroom sessions, students totally miss out the learning experience when they are not present at the scheduled time, Online Virtual Classroom sessions can be recorded thereby allowing the students to replay.
This kind of flexibility allows students from all over the world regardless of time zones are able to move at the same pace in the learning curve.
- Retention of Knowledge
Virtual Classroom delivers a more effective learning experience due to interactive modules, narrated online textbooks and multimedia tools that can be repeated until the concept is mastered. This helps the students to retain the information they learn and helps to stay focused on the learning objective at hand.
In an Online Virtual Classroom, interaction among students and instructors is faster and more helpful than face to face conversation on important course topics.
Altogether, the Virtual Classroom setup has become widespread and its benefits break all the barriers that traditional classroom deals.
