    Free Online Virtual Classroom

    WiZiQ's free Virtual Classroom is an online internet mediated classroom where the teacher and the students are connected to share a common workspace. In this online session, they make use of audio-video conferencing, text chat, whiteboard, and content sharing capabilities. There are no costs for using the virtual classroom. The sessions are recorded and are available online on WiZiQ, which can be accessed for later review or reference.

    Attendees can join a session with privileges to converse verbally with others; draw and write on whiteboard; and share Presentations, PDFs, Flash and Images. The teacher may withdraw or re-assign these privileges to the attendees. A Teacher can withdraw privileges from the attendee in terms that the attendee can not converse, or upload anything to share on whiteboard; in this case, the attendee is a spectator. An attendee can also request for rights, in which case, the teacher can click on the attendee's name to transfer control.

    I like WiziQ, but remember, Mark, that this is a place where we share bookmarks for purposes of education -- I don't really think that this entire posting is appropriate -- just a link and suggestion would have been appropriate. The forums are really for everyone to discuss things and ask questions.

    If you represent WiziQ - it would have been more appropriate to share information and then use the forum to ask people to give you feedback. However, if you're not going to interact here and check in, maybe the link would suffice.
