Having worked with, experimented and tested several asynchronous, collaborative 'classrooms' I have come to the conclusion that while some effort has been made by software developers to accommodate purely educational institutions with the inclusion of certain features and functions, most platforms have grown from the needs of medium - big business to train their workforce.

My interest here is to encourage other educators to evaluate their needs and requirements of virtual online classrooms.

Which classrooms have you tried? What were there strengths and weaknesses?
What features would you include to make the online learning experience more valuable and productive for students and teachers?

I look forward to the responses that follow.

Dear Andrew
I have tried the asynchronous learning platform of U21Global, an online Business School. It is really convenient and flexible allowing for discussion forums, chat, email and content access for executives from around the world.
The features are really useful, since it provides me the flexibility of learning at my own pace and time.
