Virtual Classroom Environment: When the Classroom Goes to the…Students

Spiros Pagiatakis

At the Lassonde School of Engineering we use high-end digital technology to create a virtual classroom environment (VCE) that simplifies communication and enhances the learning experience for both virtual and face-to-face participants while it provides seamless online, and live two-way collaboration through sharing of video, audio and data required for experiential learning and “flip class” approach. Over the last 4 years we have been offering 10 engineering courses to Lassonde engineering students and professionals from across Ontario. The session will expose the participants to the VCE and its functionality with emphasis on the variety of options that make VCE the future of effective and accessible learning.”
