What is Virtual Classroom?

A virtual classroom is a video conferencing software where teachers and students/learners engage each other using learning materials such as PPTs, PDFs, audio files, video files, quizzes, games, and much more through the online whiteboard. The difference with other video conferencing tools is that the online classroom offers an added feature-set that is essential to a learning environment and student engagement. Everything happens in real-time in the presence of teachers and provides the learners with an experience very close to traditional face-to-face teaching.

Virtual Classroom Faqs

How Merithub’s Virtual Classroom is different from other meeting tools like ZOOM and Google Meet?

  • Zoom and Google Meet are popular video conferencing software for online meetings and they are good for meetings. But they provide 20% of what is needed to run online tutoring programs. They have optimized their workflow for corporates whereas MeritHub has optimized its workflow for online teaching. Normal Video conferencing software offers just screen sharing. But along with the screen sharing MeritHub offers a dedicated drive for teachers where they can upload all their study material in the format of ppt, pdf, doc, excel, audio/video, or images and bring them to MeritHub whiteboard in one click. MeritHub whiteboard comes with super rich annotation capabilities. Once you upload files in the MeritHub drive, you can reuse them in different classes again and again.
  • Zoom or other video conferencing software will never give features like playing gamified quizzes inside it in the presence of the teacher. There is no workflow to manage tutors, students, their roles and permissions, invoicing, real-time student engagement analytics, reports to reduce no-shows, structured content sharing, teacher’s availability, calendar, scheduling, bookings and many other things.
