This is a newer distributive learning (DL) technology that allows an instructor to present information by means of a lecture when his/her slides and photos are available for students, but whose students are only present in a virtual classroom. Students login to the classroom and are able to view and hear the presentation. They interact with the instructor by either voice and web cam video or by typing questions in a fashion similar to a chat room. All of the pieces of the activity occur simultaneously.
VILT activities are accepted as traditional live activities by the NREMT and many states because they provide synchronous interaction between students and instructor, the CE provider is able to verify student attendance throughout the activity, and each topic requires that the student make a satisfactory score on the summative exam for each topic presented. The course number for a VILT activity contains an F5 designation.
Please check with your State EMS Agency for more details.
