VIRTUAL & HYBRID CLASSROOMS
Live Learn Lead
Virtual and hybrid classrooms are an online learning environment that allows for live interaction between Star University professors, instructors, guest speakers, and students regardless of where they are in the world.
In other words, the virtual classroom is a shared online space where the learners and educators work together simultaneously. Here at Star University, we use the Zoom platform, which allows our students to access the learning platform from their computer or the SMART phone.
Video communications in education offers:
1) access to increased educational resources,
2) flexibility for the learner,
3) valuable global interchange, and
4) equal opportunities for students and teachers regardless of location.
The focus of eLearning is to assist with the integration of technology for online, hybrid, and classroom-based courses.

WHAT IS A HYBRID CLASSROOM?
What is a Hybrid classroom?
The hybrid classroom combines instructor-led classes with online elements. The hybrid model fully incorporates the remote learners into the classroom—allowing them to interact with the instructor and other learners as though they were physically present. Connected with dynamic, two-way audio and high-definition video, remote learners are not simply watching the live classroom they are engaging in the classroom. Combining the live classroom with virtual components creates an equal learning experience for both the in-class and remote learners. Learners benefit from the flexibility of remote learning, while still realizing the superior learning experience of instructor-led training.
