Real-Time Virtual Learning (RTV)

Welcome to the Real-Time Virtual Learning Environment! 

WHAT IS REAL TIME VIRTUAL LEARNING?

Real Time Virtual learning is an online classroom which has required weekly meeting days and times.  It is designed to give students a convenient option when they might not be able to find the course on a local campus when needed.  This delivery format started in Fall 2016.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Students will connect through web conferencing equipment including cameras and headsets with microphones to provide a rich, interactive "virtual" classroom. Students connect with their instructor in real-time.    All students will be able to engage with the instructor during the live class session by asking questions and participating in class activities. It’s a lot like using Skype.

WHERE DO I GO FOR CLASS?

You may elect to attend from home, or any off-site location of your choosing provided broadband internet and a computer with audio and video capability is available. You may also attend from most DU campuses.  If you attend on campus, you will need to provide a USB headset with a microphone.  You will be provided with a camera and computer in a dedicated Real Time classroom or lab.  DU technical support is available via phone as needed throughout the semester.  

THIS SOUNDS GOOD.  HOW DO I FIND THESE CLASSES?

All Real Time Virtual classes are found in the Online campus offerings.  View this presentation to learn how to find these courses during registration.
