API

The Vyew API allows other web applications to integrate with Vyew by creating meetings, importing content and inviting users to meetings on the fly, via server-side calls to our API. http://xnet.vyew.com/docs/api/serverside

Why I find it superior to other virtual classrooms ?

Asynchronous&Synchronous work

Students can access their VyewBook asynchronously to do quizzes, test, polls, listen to audio, watch videos, do webtour, play games, leave audio comments in sticky notes, do peer review. None of the virtual classrooms so far has all these features integrated. It can easily replace Moodle and Voicethread. It's free and even the premium version is highly affordable both for freelance teachers and institutions.
