What is a Virtual Classroom?

A Virtual Classroom is an online classroom that allows participants to communicate, view presentations, interact with learning resources and work in groups. Since 2012 UQ has been using Adobe Connect as their Virtual Classroom system (Wimba was previously used).

Why would I use a Virtual Classroom?

A Virtual Classroom can be used to hold lectures and tutorials online, particularly with external students. Virtual Classrooms can also be setup as online meeting spaces for students to work on group tasks.

Other considerations

Adobe Connect can also be used to host virtual meetings and virtual seminars.

Virtual meetings (Adobe Connect): All UQ staff have a meeting room based on their username. Virtual meetings rooms can be used to host staff meetings, for research collaboration and for interviews.

Virtual Seminar rooms (Adobe Connect): Virtual seminar rooms are bookable virtual spaces that allow up to 200 participants.

Lecture recording: You can book recordings of classes conducted in equipped learning spaces.
