The 2 Way Video Chat web based software can easily be used with Moodle sites to build live video interactive virtual learning management systems .

Online Video Chat Seminars Software2 Way Video Chat is a P2P high definition web video communication software designed for instant 1 on 1 online video conferencing. It's a solution for conducting easy to setup face to face meetings without leaving your office or home. It's the easiest and most cost-effective way to meet somebody and discuss one on one.

Moodle is a Course Management System (CMS), also known as a Learning Management System (LMS) or a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). It is a free, open source web application that educators can use to create effective online learning sites.

This 2 Way Video Chat edition integrates into Moodle as an activity module so private video chat rooms can be added to courses as activities, in example for evaluating students. We recommend using this with latest Moodle version. Was tested with Moodle 2.0.1+.
All module php integration code is provided with full source code under GPL (free to use and edit).
