Due to Covid-19 Pandemic, a lot of changes took place around the world. The education sector faced a huge difficulty after the social gathering was not allowed to control the spread of the deadly virus. Schools, universities, and other educational institutes were shut and this created a hindrance in the flow of education for all students. This encouraged innovations like LMS and Virtual Classrooms to finally change the course of education and make it a digitized process.
Today, the number of schools and education institutes adopting eLearning solutions are rapidly growing in number. Schools are organizing online learning sessions that all students can attend from their homes through the internet. This technique of learning is now taking over the traditional methods.
According to Global Market Insights, “E-Learning Market size surpassed USD 200 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow at over 8% CAGR between 2020 and 2026”
According to TopHat, A virtual classroom is a digital learning environment that allows teachers and students to connect online in real-time. Virtual classrooms utilize video conferencing, online whiteboards, and screen sharing to allow educators to hold live lectures, virtual office hours, and discussions with students in an interactive setting. Virtual classrooms are meant to replicate the experience of physical classrooms, with the added benefits of file sharing, instant feedback, and interaction and are ideal in distance learning situations”
