Using SceneMax’s virtual classrooms

Virtual classrooms enables teacher and students to communicate with each other – asking questions, getting help, reviewing and answering other students questions, in real-time.
Virtual classroom is very much like a regular classroom where students can raise their hands and ask questions whenever they have problem implementing the studied material.
The main difference is that by default anyone in the virtual classroom can review and answer questions, taking off some pressure from the teacher.
To start working with virtual classroom you first need to join a classroom.
To do that, press on the classroom menu:
