Assisting in Virtual Classroom
In this work, you have to attend classes and help the teacher take the online class.
You have to search and get the status of the student – is he/she a free student or a paid one, when did he/she register, which course is he/she in, and get his/her email from the online data from this site – qcfinance.in (for this you have to learn wordpress with the videos we have made).
The classes are with students abroad/Indian and you have to inform and get confirmation from both teachers and student.
If the class breaks in between from either side, then you have to email the person to check out if things are going good. In case it is broken from teacher’s side, then you will be called and told what to do next.
System often hangs and restarts so you have to be there and ask the student to wait. If there is electricity cutoff than you have to tell the student to wait for 10 minutes and you will be informed of next step by a call.
You have to check if the audio is working fine / screen sharing is working fine in the class.
After the class is over email the student the notes for the class and ask him/her for the next time to be scheduled for the class.
Get the next time and check Shivgan’s calendar to fit in the preferred time, Shivgan’s calendar will have Shivgan’s timings of office you can give the free slots available from there.
Depending on whether the student is free or paid you have to focus on what tutorials you can provide.
For each student who is registered you have to make sure he is able to use the courseware at wiziq.com and access qcfinance.in for the premium page.
Share all communication of students into a shared file with godcs – student & qcfinance team.
- For every communication with the student, you have to inform us in advance & keep both Shivgan (firstname.lastname@example.org) & Arpit (email@example.com) in your email. You will not proceed unless one of them give you the permission for it.
- Keeping Learners/Students happy is the most important task for any VA/Freelancer associated with qcfinance.in.
Engaging Student for the teacher
Get in the class 5 min before the class starts.
Teacher or student are allowed to be late and they might be late.
If teacher is late talk to student if he was able to access content, is this timings good, any problem he faced in accessing and other non technical things (engage him/her till teacher arrives).
If teacher get disconnected tell the student that teacher will be back in some time (again engage him/her).
Email student after the class and before the class, after the class ask him if he needs any help & before ask him to confirm his attendance.
Emailing class links to registrants of Qcfinance.in
- To get the emails of free registrations who come from Qcfinance.in we have to open wordpress and search his/her email (chk the video for that).
- You have to get the email & thus send him/her our standard email (provided to you in Gdocs).
- You have to keep in touch with our registrants & ask them if we can register a demo class for him/her.
- Engage them in a decent behavior (they should be given there privacy & right to take there own decision, we cannot force them).
Types of Classes
Free Class – every weekend – we can relax a bit in these classes (the above rules can be bit relaxed in these classes, but still engaging learners is the job).
Paid Classes – adhoc as requested by students – these are paid classes (most important types of classes, you have to take these classes very seriously, none of the paid learners of qcfinance.in should get disappointed with our service/unprofessional behavior).
You have to check if there are registrations in the free classes and attend only if there are registrations.
Premium account handling (Weekly Task)
- Premium Registrations – Ask them to pay via paypal or ask them to register on the wiziq course.
- For Paid members give them access to premium content.
- A registrant for Wiziq course directly gets access to the premium content, so our task is to provide him that.
