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 Classrooms 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. 

The maximum number of participants that can join a Zoom meeting at any one time is 300. If you wish to host a Zoom meeting with more than 300 participants, please submit an IT request to increase the limit to 500.
