How to attend your Virtual Class:

The following section describes the steps to follow for attending live classroom with the mentor.

Once the student enrols for a class and mentor schedules the same, an email is sent with the classroom link to the student. Further, access is given to the learner to access the virtual classroom. informing him about the schedule that includes time of the class, day and frequency of the class. The Live Classroom will be active once the class room time begins. Once the learner clicks the link that is shared in the mail, the student would be logged in to the class room session.

Both audio and video would be transmitted from the mentor to the student(s) and from the learner(s) back to the mentor. Two way communication makes it just like a normal classroom. The mentor can upload material for the class using the tool. This includes audio, video and other text/pdf formats that the mentor can share with all attendees of the class room. The following document describes some of the necessary requirements that need to be done for the setup of the classroom. Note that the mentor or the learner need not download any software. All classroom sessions happen via your browser (Internet Explorer, FireFox, Chrome etc). The only other software that is required is Flash Player which is generally available on all systems and can be downloaded free from the Adobe site.  Unlike pure chat tools like Skype, gtalk, we have chosen a e-learning tool where mentor and learner can share study material in a systematic way.
