“Virtual” is one of the old terms that the digital technology vernacular has breathed a new life into, coining a new definition for it and making it a buzzword in the internet-reliant world of the early third millennium. Today, it seems that any kind of human activity can earn the moniker of being virtual once it is effected online – from acquaintance and communication to conference and relationships. We even speak of virtual reality, where the borderline between the physical and simulated worlds is blurred not to say vague.
The education industry keeps abreast of state-of-the-art IT developments as well. Being the representatives of the younger tech-savvy generation, school and university students of all ages are the driving force behind the advent of virtual, or e-learning into teaching practices. In order not to stay on the sidelines of the increasingly competitive educational market of the 21st century, high-end teachers take digitalization in its stride, offering their vision of e-learning app features or advising a preferable digital platform to choose for teaching this or that subject.
Among the numerous breakthroughs digitalization has ushered into education, virtual classroom learning is probably the most promising project since with virtual classrooms future can be brought within a palpable distance.
