This webinar was very informative in regards to helping students to communicate and collaborate in online lessons. The virtual learning experience that the students are given are great.

I wished that all schools could be able to provide this type of learning to all of their students.

A good portion of this presentation focuses on quality classroom discussion in general which is great. I was expecting a presentation more focused on technology. I guess I was expecting the online classroom discussion to take place on an open social media platform (ex. YouTube) and how to make that a safe space. Perhaps the answer is that you canít; use a closed platform where participants need to register.
