DO YOU NEED TO TEACH REMOTELY?
Create more engaging and therefore more effective virtual classes
AN ESSENTIAL TEACHING METHOD
Why choose a virtual classroom?
Offering a class experience that is as natural as a real-life classroom
The specially designed classroom is set out like a real one
Content is kept in a library and can be shared by the teacher on tables in real time. A whiteboard is ready to be used.
With an overview, like in a real-life classroom
All participants can see each other in bubbles showing their face. With a simple swipe over the bubble, they access information to identify and get to know each other.
Participation and free movement just like in a real-life classroom
In a group class, simply put your hand up and wait for the teacher to call on you to speak. Change places when you want, get up if you feel like it, have a private conversation with another participant – everything is possible! The teacher can move from one participant to another and create sub-groups.
Effective group dynamics
The teacher has a complete overview of the class – reactions can be seen at a glance, bubbles grey out when participants leave the classroom – so they can encourage participation and play on dynamics.
FEATURES THAT ENHANCE THE TEACHING EXPERIENCE
For effective learning like in a real-life classroom
By moving your bubble, you join a sub-table assigned to your group, forming collaborative workshops without leaving the classroom!
Each sub-group is independent and all participants communicate, work together and co-create content which they can then share with the whole class.
The teacher can move from one table to another to help or give instructions. They can also make an announcement to all participants at once, sending a message or asking them to come back to the central table.
Preparing and storing your teaching material
Your classroom is permanent and lasting. So, you can import all the content you will need in advance – documents, presentations, YouTube videos, surveys, pictures – and it stays saved in your library and available each time you log in to one of your classrooms. No need to keep sharing your screen!
Each sub-group table can also be prepared ahead with a special name, a description including any instructions, for example, and a directory of ready-to-use resources.
Using teaching tools
It is vital for a teacher to be able to create spontaneous interaction. To achieve this, you can switch from a theory-based presentation to a video illustrating your ideas or to a roleplay between participants via webcam. Students can put their hand up to “go to the whiteboard”, and can share their ideas via chat and emoticons.
You can also sound them out by asking binary or multiple-choice questions or turn the session into a game by asking them to move their bubbles according to a pre-defined scenario.
Monitoring attendance and attention
Through their bubble, each participant plays a full role, remaining visible and recognisable through their avatar, camera and name.
The teacher has an immediate overview of the whole group, even when they are presenting their teaching material or showing videos. A system of bubbles that grey out and other signals show if everyone is fully attentive and concentrating on the class.
All participants have a virtual identity card, so they can get to know each other and network.
