Live Classes

What is meaning of Live?

The term “Live” in the context of online classes means that instructions and knowledge are being given in real time. It’s not a recorded session, instead, the teacher and student can interact with each other dynamically.

Live classes are an instructor-led learning model wherein the teacher has control of the class. They decide the learning objective and set the pace of learning. They allow synced events organised in a live virtual classroom where students and teachers meet to study. The classes require students and teachers to be simultaneously online. However, these classes can be recorded for future reference. 

Live online classes are different from online courses in the sense that online courses are delivered asynchronously. During online courses, the teacher and students don’t have to be online simultaneously. A student can study online courses at their own pace without any real-time instructor. Some online courses may also have online classes or meetings as a part of the course activities. 

Live classes make distance learning possible. It allows the instructor and the learner to be at different locations, yet connect in real-time to discuss the subjects. Further, real-time classes add confidence and credibility to those classes. 

This also gives the instructor a chance to prove their command of the subject. 

Advantages of Live Online Classes

  1. Real-time Interaction: Students and instructors can engage in immediate discussions, questions, and clarifications, simulating the dynamic nature of a physical classroom.
  2. Flexibility: Students can participate from anywhere, as long as they have internet access, allowing for greater flexibility in scheduling and location.
  3. Diverse Learning Resources: Instructors can integrate multimedia, presentations, videos, and other interactive materials to enhance the learning experience.
  4. Global Reach: Live online classes enable students to connect with educators and peers from around the world, fostering diverse perspectives and cultural awareness.
  5. Recorded Sessions: Many platforms allow sessions to be recorded, giving students the opportunity to revisit content for better understanding or in case they missed a class.
  6. Time and Cost Efficiency: Both students and instructors save time and costs associated with commuting and physical resources, making education more accessible.

However, despite the advantages, live classes have their own set of disadvantages as well. If the teacher or student has connection problems, they will not have a great learning experience.

How Live Online Classes are Done?
