Video Assignments and Virtual Classroom

To create a truly dynamic online learning experience, instructors need to use a combination of synchronous and asynchronous video tools. Video Assignments and Virtual Classroom form a holistic video assessment solution that fosters a more active learning experience. When learners demonstrate skills and apply their knowledge on video, evaluators get an authentic representation of what they can do.
