Buyers guide


Last Updated: July 16, 2019

Distance learning courses are a long-established tradition in education and training. Indeed, the University of London established its international program in 1858, making it the world’s oldest provider of distance and flexible learning.

Even so, seemingly unavoidable disadvantages have typically resulted in lower completion rates for distance learning than for in-person classes. Until the 21st century, there was no way to avoid the lack of direct interaction between student and teacher or the demoralizing effects of student isolation.

Buyers should expect to find the following functionality in their new system:

Audio-video streaming Instructors can interact directly, in real time, with groups of learners or individuals via streaming audio and video.

Chat Learners and instructors can interact via personal or group chat, rather than sit passively listening to lectures. Questions can be addressed directly in real time, and instructors can conduct quick tests.
Recording Instructors can record classes for playback by absent students. They can also use the audio-video recording functionality to prepare introductions to lessons.
Breakout rooms Instructors can break classes into smaller groups via vir
