What is a Virtual Classroom?

A Virtual Classroom is an online classroom that allows participants to communicate, view presentations, interact with learning resources and work in groups. The software can also be used to host a meeting with UQ and non-UQ people by simply sending them your meeting room URL.

Why would I use a Virtual Classroom?

A Virtual Classroom can be used to hold lectures and tutorials online, particularly with external students. Virtual Classroom's allow you to share your screen or specific applications (ie a presentation) from your computer; to see other people's screens (subject to settings), conduct polls; and write on a virtual whiteboard. Virtual Classrooms can also be setup as online meeting spaces for students to work on group tasks. 

Other Considerations

Zoom is UQ's virtual classroom and meeting software, previously Adobe Connect was used.
