Virtual Lessons

Virtual sessions provide opportunities for real-time discussion and dynamic interaction between teachers and students. Virtual sessions enable teachers to duplicate any learning environment, from lectures and debates to small group discussions, presentations, and office hours. By attending virtual sessions, students find the online content more approachable, accessible and easier to understand. As a result, students experience increased success in the course.2
