FAQs

What does a virtual class mean?

A virtual class is a scheduled interactive online lesson delivered by FunTech.

All our virtual software is Citrix driven and so extremely safe

How does the virtual class work?

All students receive a virtual orientation lesson before the start of their course.

For each lesson, your child will receive an email invitation containing a link allowing them to log onto our virtual classroom. We schedule a maximum of eight students who are predominately based in the UK, however, a few of our students have moved abroad due to parents work commitments and therefore log in from further afield.

The lessons themselves are the exact same as is delivered in our physical classroom. Through our virtual classroom environment, your child has the option to raise their hand, ask questions and also speak to the other students in their class (though we do have a mute all option '- just in case!)

FunTech teachers are able to pass control of their monitor to an individual student or share it amongst all the students. With permission, we can take control of a students' monitor to demonstrate concepts, share common mistakes or outstanding work as we would in a physical classroom.

What do we need to join a virtual class?

Good internet connection, headphones with a microphone and a computer.
