What is a Virtual Classroom?

A virtual classroom is an online learning environment where instructors and learners come together just like in a physical classroom. The only difference here is that the online version relies on communication tools to manage all training and learning activities.

The best thing about online classroom platforms is that they provide a centralized place to add learners, create learner groups, assign courses and tests, and track progress in real-time. Teaching and learning have never been this easy.
