What is virtual classroom and why do you care?
The virtual classroom is just what you think. You attend the class using your computer and a headset equipped with a microphone. As the class takes place in real time, the instructor and all the students attend classes at a given time and date. Students use their virtual hand and chat room to ask questions and interact with the class. The instructor can show presentation, videos and break students into small groups for exercises. Just about anything you do in a traditional classroom you can do in a virtual one.
Unless you have unlimited budget and everyone has all the time available to travel, you will be looking for a means to provide quality training at reasonable cost. Virtual classroom has proven itself to be a strong alternative.
Today, multi-location companies are looking for ways to bring together workforce from all over the world, forming global learning communities. Virtual classrooms ensure that training can be uniform across locations.
