With a multitude of education trends coming to light, virtual learning is among the most common, and most effective in American classrooms. Using a blend of resources, virtual learning provides students with an opportunity to immerse themselves in classes taught online. How the class is conducted depends on the preferences of the instructor and the students. In some cases, communication between the instructor and students takes place mainly through email as assignments are completed. This type of virtual classroom does not rely on video communication technology, and is easy to blend with traditional, in-class learning. In a different type of virtual classroom, some instructors may choose to communicate their information by purely employing video communication technology. These courses are usually independent and are not part of a blend with a traditional learning classroom.
