This study was performed to investigate the effects of live virtual classroom on students' achievement and to determine students' opinions about the live virtual physics classroom at distance learning. 63 second-year Distance Computer Education & Instructional Technology students enrolled in this study. At the live virtual physics classroom, the instructor presented physics lessons. Midterm, final and make-up scores were examined after the LOC instruction. Students who are LOCFF (n = 32), joined over 50% percent and they had significantly higher scores than students who are LOCFR (n = 31), joined below 50% percent to the lessons. According to t-test result, LOCFF group more successfully than LOCFR group (p = 0.006*). In addition, the interviews carried out with students to determine students' opinions about the live virtual physics classroom and the results were evaluated, classified and discussed several essential considerations about virtual classrooms.
