A designated class for professionals could be quite different from one for college students due to a variety of professionals in light of attendees' totally different profiles. For instance, each individual has different background, work experience, course expectation, work schedule, and so forth. Virtual classes powered by advanced network computing and web technologies are an excellent and cost-effective solution to providing professionals with full accesses to well-developed college or training courses by eliminating time and location limitation. In addition, savvy information about individuals, such as education background, work experience, and course expectations, can be collected and archived. When knowledge-based algorithms are used to tailor course materials and assignments for each individual based on his/her saved dossier, the needs of an individual professional can be completely satisfied. Ease of use, interactions, and real time responses are essential implicit characteristics of a virtual classroom. Enabled Internet technologies and artificial intelligence make this kind of learning environment reality.
