The Global Classroom
The physical classroom is just the start for places to learn and teach these days. E-Lecta’s Live Tutor is a virtual school that can meet anywhere from Seattle to Sarasota with a rich array of teaching tools available. The system is IP-based and provides one-on-one learning or virtual classrooms for up to 20 kids. On top of sharing an interactive whiteboard and running presentations so that all can see, E-Lecta provides break-out rooms for individual attention. The software can record any class for later distribution. Its annual subscription costs from $400 for one teacher and up to 5 students to $700 for up to 20 students. There’s a free trial so you can see if the system works for your school or district before spending.
