How to Take Charge of your Online Classroom with WizIQ
The importance of Classroom Management can be understood by the following excerpt taken from Wikipedia:
According to Moskowitz & Hayman (1976), once a teacher loses control of their classroom, it becomes increasingly more difficult for them to regain that control. Also, research from Berliner (1988) and Brophy & Good (1986) shows that the time a teacher has to take to correct misbehavior caused by poor classroom management skills results in a lower rate of academic engagement in the classroom. From the student’s perspective, effective classroom management involves clear communication of behavioral and academic expectations as well as a cooperative learning environment.
Needless to say, the essential management of a large classroom can be overwhelming for a single teacher. And if that class is being conducted online, it becomes equally, if not more, exasperating.
Understanding this need for good classroom management, WizIQ brings to you a new feature that lets you invite and add one, or more, co-presenter(s) to your class, for assistance.
With this feature, teachers can invite and add co-presenters easily by following these simple steps:
1. Schedule LIVE class
2. Launch Class
3. On the virtual classroom screen, the following window will appear by default:
4. Copy the second link under section “For Co-Presenter”
5. Share with a person/persons of your choice
When the co-presenter will click the link and enter your class, he/she will have access to all the tools as the main presenter.
Some FAQs related to this feature:
1. How many co-presenters can I add to my virtual classroom?
As many as you think are required. There is no such limit defined.
2. Do the co-presenters need a WizIQ account in order to enter class?
Similar to the ‘Add Attendee’ feature, anybody can be invited to become a co-presenter for a LIVE online class. The co-presenter(s) need not have a WizIQ account. All they need is an internet connection and the co-presenter URL for the LIVE class.
