We are looking for advice on virtual classroom platforms. We are currently using Google Classroom and would like insight on strategy and best practices.
Our job readiness training workshops have now gone virtual. We have been operating on Google Classroom (where our content and assignments are hosted), but when it comes time to live teach the lessons we have been moving to Microsoft Teams or Zoom. Not all of our participants are tech savvy and the switching back and forth can sometimes be confusing for them. We are looking to keep everything in one place, simplify our process, and cut down on confusion. We would love to speak to someone who has experience with teaching in a virtual environment and can help us do the research to find the optimal platform for adult learners."Phone Calls" are 1 hour, one-time calls with an organization. Learn the difference between volunteering on a Phone Call and a Project here.
