Features of Virtual Class Room
Synchronous Learning : In this type of learning process, students and professors connect and interact with each other in real time. Interaction with professors and peers makes the learning process interesting and enriching for students.
Live Audio-Video Support : Audio and video support both contribute towards the e learning process in virtual classroom. Professors can share their audio and video, thus establishing one-to-one relation with students. This builds confidence in students about the pedagogy methods and allows professors to communicate effectively with the students. Moreover, the students asking questions can share their videos with the fellow students as well.
White Board : White Board is an alternative to the traditional blackboard method, used as a tool for drawing graphics or diagrams in virtual classroom.
Sharing of Learning Resources and/or Desktop Screen : The resource sharing feature in virtual classroom allows professors to share varied content in different formats with the students in real time while delivering lectures on various course topics. This resource sharing feature supports sharing of various file formats – MS Word, MS Excel, Powerpoint Presentations, PDF files, flash presentations, flash videos etc. With this type of supportive and informative course material, learning becomes interesting and gives an interactive experience.
Classroom Control by Professors & Active Student Participation : In virtual classroom when professors deliver lectures to the students while explaining or elaborating concepts, ideally one sided process of communication is followed, and students are not permitted to talk/ express themselves at the same time in order to avoid chaotic situations. Though all the participants from the virtual classroom are connected through audio and/or video conference, the participation rights are controlled by the professors.
