Triggered by the Circuit Breaker period in Singapore, we wanted to create an online learning experience that was as close to the real face-to-face experience as possible. That means retaining the highly interactive nature of our classes, while maximising convenience and safety using the online medium.
Instead of a generic video conferencing platform, we chose a dedicated virtual classroom platform which includes classroom-friendly functions like the random name-caller, collaborative annotation, points system counter, easy screen-sharing, countdown timer, and more.
Thankfully, our efforts seem to have paid off, as our students regularly tell us how much they enjoy their online tuition classes! Even today, some students prefer the online experience and continue to choose it for their lessons!
