Virtual Live Classroom (VLC)
What Is A Virtual Live Classroom (VLC)
A Virtual Live Classroom or VLC as we like to call them, is a session that is conducted via a Live Streaming Platform such as Youtube or Facebook, allowing you, the taker of the VLC to broadcast yourself – at broadcast quality HD up to 1080p no less (*depends on platform) – and can be multi camera live vision switched as well as bring in graphics, video content, web pages, powerpoint presentations and more into your broadcast.
It is best used when you have a group session such as a cooking demonstration or language course or anything similar where you would have the main information flow coming from the studio, platform, pulpit, classroom front or stage.
Basically it is your very own personal Television Studio Space
You turn up and we do all the production for you, Live Stream your amazing content out to your audience – we record it too – and after a quick edit, share your finished video copy with you.
Interactive Live Audience Participation
Your audience will be able to access the VLC through your Live Streaming platform and you can embed this into your own website. By utilising the functionality of live commenting through your website, you will give your “class” members the ability to interact
