Virtual Platform

When using the Virtual Learning Model or distance learning…

students work online at home while the teacher assigns work and checks in digitally. Distance learning, also called distance education, e-learning, and online learning, is a form of education in which the main elements include physical separation of teachers and students during instruction and the use of various technologies to facilitate student-teacher and student-student communication.
