About Virtual Classroom

Our simple, straightforward web conferencing tool provides a seamless way to connect face-to-face to support learning and training objectives.

The Virtual Classroom meeting space allows instructors, trainers, and learners to engage each other with livestream video. Instructors can engage a large audience and connect up to 7 simultaneous webcams.

Learners can create meetings in the Virtual Classroom space within Group Project and Individual Project. These recordings can be submitted as a part of their final deliverable.
