Distance Learning in Virtual Class Rooms

Distance learning and self-directed education are becoming increasingly prevalent in today’s information-rich world. Web-based technology is essential to support both of these trends. On a large scale, schools and universities are enabling students of all ages to attend virtual classes or lectures, select course materials, and pursue self-paced learning. Online educational tools provided may include:

  • Prerecorded audio and video lessons
  • Live webinars with some Q&A capability
  • Educational games
  • Chat room style study groups and forums
  • Skill/competency evaluation and testing

Putting a Human Face on Remote Teaching

While the flexibility of remote education is a benefit, distance can lead to a feeling of isolation for those involved. The core teacher/student relationship is still about face-to-face engagement—even in virtual space. For private tutoring and small group classes, it’s essential for all attendees to be able to fully participate. Veeting Rooms provides a useful solution with video conferencing that includes a full complement of tools for collaborative learning.

Case study: Private Mandarin Lessons

Learning a new language is an enriching experience on many levels. It provides the mental challenge of stretching one’s intellectual capacity, the chance to create new relationships with people from other cultures, and expanded opportunities for career and business.

When a family in Switzerland had their child’s Mandarin teacher go on leave, they struggled to find another tutor to step in and fill the vacancy. Fortunately, they were eventually able to make contact with Ms. Yang and arrange for private lessons online.
