ViCLASS Virtual Study Center is an integrated learning platform that has a virtual classroom which enables a live audio and video conferencing sessions between students and instructors, he added.

The statement said instructors have the feature to open a live class session, section students into groups for group discussion, upload presentation materials, write and draw on an interactive white teaching board amongst other features.

“Students, who join a live class session, can ask their instructor questions in text or by unmuting their microphone.

“Both parties have the feature to stream videos together within the virtual classroom.

“Beyond the Virtual Classroom feature in the Virtual Study Center, instructors can issue assignments, open discussion forum topics, and grade assignments submitted by students,” according to the company.

On the other hand, students can submit assignments, reply, or comment on open discussion forum topics in text, audio, or video format.

Students can also take their exams directly from the Virtual Study Center.

The company said: “ViCLASS offers two types of service packages; a dedicated and shared solution.

“The dedicated solution is majorly for education providers that have a high number of students and wants to have their own branded virtual study center while the shared solution is a general virtual study center for education providers who do not have many students and do not mind sharing a virtual study center with others unnoticed.”

ViCLASS is a Managed Cloud LMS and a Virtual Study Center for developing, hosting, management, and delivery of educational courses by corporate organizations, training firms, schools and universities.
