For many years, the idea of ​​a classroom was associated with the physical space (the classroom ) where a teacher teaches classes before his students. However, with the development of technology, some time ago a notion arose that raises a new type of classroom: the virtual classroom.

It's known as a virtual classroom to a digital environment that enables the development of a learning process. Information and communication technologies ( ICT ) allow the student to access the study material and, in turn, interact with the teacher and other students.

A virtual classroom has no physical limits: its limitations are linked to the availability of access by computer means. The student, on the other hand, can "enter" the classroom at any time and from anywhere to take their classes.

Unlike traditional classrooms, where the teacher is physically present and exercises greater control over the student's actions, in the virtual classroom it's the student himself who must decide how, when and how to study.

Virtual classrooms usually present different tools that the person studying can use. The video, downloading study material, participation in forums and chats and interactive exercises are common in this type of educational environments.

It's important to mention that, although there are entities that offer totally online training, there are traditional study centers that complement the offer of their schools or universities with virtual classrooms to improve the quality of the educational proposal.

Starting from all the exposed characteristics, we're faced with the fact that if virtual classrooms have managed to increase considerably in recent years, it's due to the large number of advantages they offer:

- They allow anyone to improve their training by combining his personal and professional life, without impediments of any kind.
- No less relevant is that the study of the subject in question can be done comfortably, simply from the sofa at home.
- Access to all content, resources and exercises contained in the virtual classroom is permanent. That is, it's open at any time of the day for the entire duration of the training. In this way, the student can carry it out at the time that suits him, when he has free time and, in addition, at his own pace.
- No less relevant is that it represents a significant saving for the student for two reasons. First, because it's a time saver because you don't have to lose that in moving to any study center. Second, because it also avoids the need for unnecessary expenses in travel to that place, you don't have to make any disbursements in gasoline for your vehicle or on public transport tickets.
