What is a Virtual Classroom?

The word 'classroom' brings to mind a set of neatly aligned desks in rows and columns and a teacher writing on a board, explaining the difficult concepts whiles the students try to understand. Well, for the virtual classroom the scenario is different. A virtual classroom is an online live classroom that allows participants to communicate with the teacher, interact with one another, view presentations or videos, and engage with resources in work groups.

The popularity of virtual classroom has grown leaps and bounds over the years. Today, the virtual classroom is the center of online degree programs. Allowing students to learn from their convenience and in more particular ways they are best at without losing the quality or integrity of the material. So, whether you are a logical learner, linguistic learner, spatial learner, bodily learner, musical learner, interpersonal or intrapersonal learner; virtual classrooms can cater to your individual learning needs.

Top benefits of learning through a virtual classroom:


Virtual classroom offers flexible accessibility to coursework at any time of the day. Students now have the freedom to study and participate in classes from anywhere and at any time that suits their busy schedule. It doesn't matter if you're going out of town on business or you are waiting for a connecting flight, all you have to do is log in, and you're in class!

You can easily access your assignments, submit your homework, watch videos or presentations, join student group discussions, contact your teacher and coursemates, receive feedback, and access your grades.

Immediate Feedback

As you take up a virtual class, you don’t need to worry and wait for days in order to get your test results or performance reviews. Your tests are taken online, so you get your test scores or performance evaluation as soon as you are done with your test. With this, you can instantly review the areas where you performed well and where you need to improve further. In addition to this, you can also interact with your teacher in a private window and confidentially get your feedback in real time.

Flexible Structure and Time Management

Unlike traditional class-based learning, virtual classroom students can work while studying because the system is structured to work around family and work schedules. Students have the freedom to choose the best times to participate that sync with their schedule as there'll be weekly assignments and due dates that must be met.

Boost Learners’ Engagement

Virtual classroom offers a whole new level of learners' engagement that may previously not have been there. It also allows people the opportunity to communicate effectively in a learning environment with fellow students across the world, something that they may not have the opportunity to experience if they were in an actual real-life classroom.

However, learning in a virtual classroom does, of course, have its drawbacks - which borders around the need for digital training, good internet connection, installation, and infrastructure challenges.
