The Virtual Classroom Defined

Many people wonder, “What exactly is a virtual classroom?”

If you want a precise definition, Wikipedia.com says, "A virtual classroom is a learning environment created in the virtual space.
"The objectives of virtual classrooms are to improve access to advanced educational experiences by allowing students and instructors to participate in remote learning communities using personal computers; and to improve the quality and effectiveness of education by using the computer to support a collaborative learning process. 
"The explosion of the knowledge age has changed the context of what is learnt and how it is learnt – the concept of virtual classrooms is a manifestation of this knowledge revolution.
There are a lot of different virtual classroom systems and platforms you can use: everything from Adobe Connect, WebEx, and Citrix GoToTraining. But what really matters is the way the training content is designed and facilitated. This is the key to successful knowledge transfer.
