Explore the Virtual Classroom

Our virtual classroom lets you interact with the instructor and other students in real-time.

Joining the classroom is as simple as it gets – no software downloads, nothing to install on your computer. Everything runs directly from your browser window.

The webcam and screenshare broadcast is one-way, meaning only the instructor shares his video/audio. This ensures the privacy of our students and camera-shy participants.

The instructor’s live webcam lets you put a face to the name, streaming in high-definition.
Follow the instructor’s screenshare as they write code in real-time, present slides, and more.
Ask questions and get immediate answers – this is live training at its best. Students upvote / downvote questions, so the teacher can prioritize what’s most important.
Get to know the other students in the classroom and communicate with the instructor.
