The ScholarLMS Online/Virtual Classroom is a web conferencing, Instructor Led Training (ILT) system designed for synchronous learning. It is also a class leading feature that very few LMS’s are equipped with and so we urge you to make the most of it.
With this feature, one or more teachers/educators can take online classes with their learners. Optionally, these sessions can also be recorded and used as future course material.
