The year 2020 has given a 360-degree change to everyone’s life. Not only the professional but also the academic life has seen a drastic change in carrying out the regular routines. As offices are insisting on work from home culture, educational institutes are needed to shift from classroom-led learning to virtual classroom-based learning. To match the requirement, educational institutes need to gear up for a virtual classroom system to facilitate the students to continue their educational routine without stepping out of their homes.
There are multiple educational software providers in the market but not all seem to fulfill the requirements efficiently.
There are certain criteria for choosing the apt virtual classroom system like:
- Tablet/mobile support
- Facility to schedule or launch live sessions
- Attendance report
- Instant communication channels
- Simple to use
These features make the system capable of providing a seamless learning experience to students and help teachers to make the learning more interactive and enjoyable. Vidyalaya is continuously marking the top-notch position when it comes to providing efficient learning management systems. Here are the reasons that will show why there is a future in virtual classroom software and why educational institutes should invest in it.
Break the barriers of location
It is one of the key reasons behind signing up for virtual classrooms. With the adoption of this, students can get an excellent learning experience without bearing the location barriers. They just need a smart device and a reliable internet connection. And they are ready to sign up for their learning classes.

The traditional chalk and talk method of learning offer a limited way of educational experience. Teachers normally follow static methods like flat diagrams, oral explanations, stencils, slides to elaborate on concepts. But these methods have limitations like they cannot explain the detailed working or cannot offer inside details so the knowledge sharing is incomplete.
Vidyalaya’s virtual classroom will remove these flaws and will open doors to a new way of learning. In this, learning is not limited to students are listening to what the teacher is telling. It can give detailed study about any concept as the live classes can have access to diverse study material through the internet. Embedded videos, audio, or slide shows can help to explain complex topics thoroughly. Students if kept the recording on, can rehearse the lecture desired times which is nearly impossible in the manual method of learning. Global exposure and diversity will help the students to know about the latest trends or updates in academics.
With the traditional option, parents need to bear different expenses like transport, study material whereas educational institutes need to spend money on infrastructure and its maintenance, stationery, electricity, and many other things.
When the learning is shifted from classrooms to virtual classrooms, a significant amount of money can be saved as only a single smart device and reliable internet connection are needed throughout the year. There is no need of printing worksheets, journals, assignments, or even question paper. Students can do all this online without wasting resources like paper, stationery.

Teachers can make groups and can enhance the soft-skills like team building, teamwork, collaboration among the students.

Easy accessibility and sharing files
In the traditional learning method, study material needs to buy from the vendor or school and other material can be received from the teacher. If students are absent for the distribution day, they perhaps may not get the material or get lately.
