Mr. Karim Beshara, CEO LINKdotNET, stated that: “Since LINKdotNET is always eager on being the first in the region to introduce interactive packages, and because we believe that the technology empowers individuals and institutions, we were keen on offering special educational solutions to ensure the continuity of education that has recently been frequently interrupted by the spread of H1N1 virus. Accordingly, we developed the VirtualClassroom program as part of LINK2School package for schools, universities and all educational institutions at an affordable rate.”
“With an increasing number of schools closing their doors during the academic year due to H1N1 threats, LINK Development is striving to provide alternative means to ensure the academic year continuity for schools and universities alike,” commented Hanan Abdel Meguid, CEO LINK Development.
It is also worth mentioning that VirtualClassroom service is the perfect solution to avoid spreading the virus through physical interaction. It is also highly cost-effective for all parties in terms of direct and managing expenses, as a result of it being a totally hosted application.
VirtualClassroom offers a wide variety of interactive tools to maintain as real a classroom feeling as possible. Through the VirtualClassroom web portal that manages schedules , participation, and calendaring , students and teachers can share applications, presentations, documents, reports as well as holding audio-video conferences, by means of this amazing V-class client tool that makes all the document sharing, interaction, and video conferencing possible.
