Basically, one can attend any class just sitting in front of a computer screen.Through the site, educators can watch videos of teachers working in their classrooms as a way to learn from, and provide feedback to, peers in their profession. The site’s platform also gives teachers a space to share lesson ideas and strategies across a fairly broad range of subjects and grade levels.
