Virtual Classroom
Overview

What is a Virtual Classroom Course?

Virtual Classroom Instruction is a cutting-edge, educational opportunity for students to enroll in classes from any location where internet access is available. The virtual classroom is a simple concept: Put the instructor in one place, the students elsewhere—wherever it’s convenient—and let the class begin.

Instructor and students meet in a virtual classroom using WebEx and Desire2Learn!

Classes are held at designated times and days; are filled with 6 - 15 fellow classmates; and taught real-time by a qualified technologically trained teacher. It just like a "regular" classroom, except it's entirely online!

Characteristics of the Online Classroom:

  • Real time Instruction with highly-qualified instructors.
  • Live instruction and demonstrations in the comfort of your own home.
  • Classmate interaction.
  • Discussions on content topics

Desire2Learn (D2L) is a Learning Management System that you will use for the Virtual Classroom.  With D2L, you can upload assignments, participate in online asynchronous discussions, take quizzes, view class content, and obtain up-to-the-minute grades in a visual interface that is intuitive and user-friendly. 

WebEx is the virtual standard for online meetings.  Not only is it used for business, but it can also be a virtual environment optimized for learning. Featuring high-quality voice over the Internet or phone, robust interactive functionality, and support for multiple platforms, WebEx is a rich media experience that can be used in many remote areas of the state. All you need is cable, dsl, or wireless internet to connect.
