Virtual Classroom

The online courses of the Educational Portal are delivered through our Virtual Classroom, which is an interactive environment with active participation by expert tutors and individuals from across the Americas who contribute to a valuable virtual education experience. Each course has a virtual community in which participants and tutors exchange experiences and collaboratively construct knowledge. The Virtual Classroom allows users to participate in educational and practical activities as they do in a traditional academic institution.

Our Tutors
The courses offered through the Virtual Classroom are provided under the academic supervision of specialized tutors who assist and guide participants as they take an active role in their learning process. The tutors are trained in the pedagogical framework of the Educational Portal and coordinated by a pedagogic specialist. They are trained to use the virtual classroom’s tools, contributing their dedication and commitment to achieve a collaborative and participatory environment.

Tutors assist participants in:
• Accessing the course
• Suggesting reading support and answering questions
• Analyzing and evaluating the activities assigned
• Providing substantive feedback
• Providing individual clarifications and explanations when necessary
