As technology becomes more prevalent in our lives, it is increasingly important for students to familiarize with computers at a young age. Many schools are starting to designate computers to students because of the importance of developing technological experience. Likewise, teaching methods evolve as education demand shifts, teachers are starting to expand their lessons into the realm of computers. Screen-sharing is, and should be a popular tool in the classroom, since it’s a helpful tool to engage students in many parts of the lesson, which we will discuss throughout this post.
Web-based video conferencing has quickly become a preferred method for virtual meetings between friends, families, and business professionals in the 21st century. As technology enables more and more actions to be performed virtually, it’s no surprise video conferencing has also become a widely-used medium for online education. In today’s blog, we’ll be going over some of the ways that teachers of all kinds can utilize video conferencing to make their courses more accessible, more interactive, and more engaging.
In the old days, students had to be physically present in a classroom in order to receive the teacher’s lecture or lesson. Now, thanks to video conferencing and online education, teachers and students are no longer bound the confines of an actual classroom. Not only does this make educational courses accessible to students anywhere in the world, it eliminates any overhead expenses associated with having a classroom of students under one roof. This savings can be used to make classes more affordable and thereby accessible to more students.

Like any craft or discipline, practicing is a crucial part of playing music. Not only does it improve your playing technique, but knowing various scales, chords, and techniques makes you a more creative and thoughtful musician.

In these harder economic times, many people—both professionals and hobbyists—have taken to the Internet to teach classes. From gardening to small household repairs and everything else in between, free or affordable lessons are available for just about any topic you can think of.
One strategy for instructors and class attendants is free conferencing—using real-time video and audio feeds, instructors can engage with their audience in a more organic way.
