Remote Learning in the Modern age
When it comes to education, one of the biggest issues currently in focus on a global scale is how do educators continue to instruct, when there are transportation and large public gathering bans in place? What’s more, many teaching institutions are moving toward implementing distance learning for students in remote or hard to reach areas like the far north, making video learning a requirement. Using the RingCentral Video platform can resolve these demands for any teacher that has internet access and a video camera. Students can attend with either video or audio and these virtual classes can be live streamed for multiple concurrent attendees. As well, students can live chat and share content like project files and pictures during the sessions all on a secure platform. Classes can also be recorded for students who cannot attend live sessions or for future reference and content review.
Curriculum or learning management systems (LMS) like Blackboard, Canvas, or Moodle can even be integrated with RingCentral's APIs. Remote video classes can be scheduled on a daily, weekly, or monthly recurring basis. Video meetings can be launched from within the LMS application and past recorded meetings (classes) can be viewed at any time.
