Top 5 Ways of Using a Virtual Classroom Solution

December 12, 2012 at 2:23 PMElecta Live

The possibilities are almost endless, with users only limited by their imaginations. Some of the most common applications of a virtual classroom software are:

1. Live Instruction

Traditional distance learning programs have low completion rates as students are left to learn on their own with a feeling of isolation. Today’s online teachers need a method to communicate to students in an effective and pedagogically sound manner, one-on-one or one-to-many. Studies show that the ideal solution is a blended learning model with asynchronous and synchronous interaction.

2. Meetings

With eLecta Live, you can easily and effectively host web based meetings, significantly reducing teleconferencing and travel costs and decreasing time away from job.
Teachers and administrators save significant amounts per year by not having to travel long distances for meetings and professional development. And this doesn’t take into effect the elimination of the cost of substitute teachers for those on the road.


3. Asynchronous Content Development

With eLecta Live, you can create asynchronous content using the interactive record and playback functionality. For example, you can record student orientation sessions or add a recorded welcome to your virtual classroom prior the first day of class. In addition, students can view interactive recordings of your classes if they’ve missed a session or just to reinforce learning and help retain knowledge.

4. Tutoring Programs

Whether provided by instructors or peers, tutoring via eLecta Live offers students an opportunity to work one-on-one to get questions answered or receive help with homework or other assignments. Sessions can be scheduled, or students can drop into to an existing virtual room to connect with the tutor. The Electa Live Online Training Software is ideal for implementing your online tutoring programs.

5. Classroom Collaboration
 
Collaboration at a distance connects students from different locations and cultures to enhance the learning experience. Students from United Kingdom collaborated with students from China in a course about international architecture.
