PILOT MOUNTAIN, N.C., April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- WebTeach.com™ (http://webteach.com) is pleased to announce the addition of its latest platform feature which allows registered WebTeachers to offer interactive, online classes in virtually any subject matter for up to 1000 students at a time.
WebTeach.com's new "WebTeachinar" Technology is intended for educators, schools or enterprises wishing to teach a class or an entire course without identifying and inviting potential students in advance. Online registration remains open until the class has reached its maximum student capacity (at a teacher's discretion or up to 1,000). Hosts can adjust the tuition cost per individual participant, including no cost participation.
"WebTeach.com's 'WebTeachinar' solution makes it easy for anybody or any organization looking to hold live online group meetings or seminars. With end-of-grade testing less than six weeks away for many students across the country, WebTeach.com's 'WebTeachinar' is the perfect solution and makes it easy for teachers to help classrooms of students perform better without having to stay after school or for a school to provide transportation home to learners wanting additional assistance," says JW Ray, President and CEO of WebTeach.com.
Users wishing to utilize the WebTeach.com platform are required to set up an account at no charge. From there, WebTeachers have total control of the session creation process including a custom session landing page (no coding required). Once set-up is complete, the user can choose applicable social and digital media share tools that will automatically aid in the promotion of the session. Classes will also be listed on WebTeach.com's upcoming events section with one-click interface to the session landing page and registration link. Session management tools can be accessed anytime using the WebTeacher's custom dashboard.
The WebTeachinar marketplace offering extends the WebTeach Live! platform product line by opening up new learning opportunities and tutoring sessions to students across the globe. Currently, WebTeach Live! sessions are created by WebTeachers and WebStudents in a closed cloud classroom environment. WebTeachers can still teach 1-on-1 or 1-to-1000, but all participants are personally invited by the WebTeacher via standard email or WebTeach.com's platform messaging system.
Designed to empower educators and learners of all ages and stages, WebTeach.com participants can create and engage in best-of-class education experiences that can take place anywhere, anytime using virtually any web-enabled device. Webteach.com significantly reduces out-of-pocket expenses, eliminates lost time due to travel and removes obstacles to productivity by offering a cloud-based tool that fosters a streamlined interface for the sharing and consumption of knowledge.
Today's WebTeach Live! and WebTeachinar participants may utilize any or all of the following features with an ever expanding list as the platform is under continuous development:
- WebTeach Exclusive: Video record the tutoring or teaching session for unlimited play back by the student or the teacher
- Interactive whiteboard – draw, highlight images, share pictures and freeform draw
