Virtual Classrooms

What is a Virtual Classroom?

We are working with education departments and the Independent and Catholic education sectors across Australia to offer a range of free Virtual Classrooms. Using webinar learning, Virtual Classrooms allow an Outreach trainer to reach many schools, even in remote areas.

Presentations are usually about 30–40 minutes in length, allow student participation under teacher guidance and include recommended complementary resources.
