WizIQ is a teaching platform used by many teachers to teach just as many subjects!  It is a virtual classroom with a LIVE video stream and the possibility of interacting LIVE with up to 6 students on video stream or almost an unlimited number of students. I started using WizIQ last September 2013 and have found this method of teaching as up to date and futuristic as can be, not only for me but also for my students. All classes are normally recorded and the recording is available for the student to download, watch as many times as they wish and keep for further reference. All didactic material is uploaded into the virtual classroom and is also available for the student to download and keep – doing away with ‘textbooks’ and printed paper. The student can access the course at anytime during the day or week being available 24/7 and also participate actively by commenting in the ‘course feed’ or by uploading assignments or taking a test (set by the Teacher). In other words everything that you could possibly do in a physical classroom can be done even better in an online live classroom, the Teacher can play a video, podcast, presentation, or many other multi-media sharing it live in the virtual environment.

I teach various courses on WizIQ all to do with English Language Learning, most of my courses are Tailored to the individual needs of the student/s. Just as you would expect in a Face to Face lesson you will have a Live stream online lesson with me, where not only will you be able to see me but I will also see you and you will be able to interact on the White Board just as you would in a physical classroom. All you need is an internet connection, Webcam and Microphone, pc / mac / computer, in order to be able to interact in a real time classroom in live stream. Then all you need is the ‘willpower’ to learn and broaden your perspectives, just as I do by actively keeping abreast with what’s happening in the world of online Teaching via the many specialized courses,  MOOC’s and MOOT’s on WizIQ.

What are you waiting for go now to www.wiziq.com and check out what’s going on in the online learning world!
