The importance of synchronicity

Clive on Learning

On both occasions, the idea that most got me thinking was that 'synchronous is sovereign'. I've had to work hard to buy into this idea, perhaps because I've been advising learning professionals for some time now to adopt asynchronous (self-paced) communication as their default, and to go synchronous (live) only when a strong argument can be made. Having said that, I'm not convinced that synchronous events are all that exciting when the experience is no different from a recording. So, don't push the slider from all synchronous to all asynchronous - find the right balance.

Experiencing eLearning

If I’m doing software application training, doing it as a webinar isn’t really my first choice. I’d rather create a bunch of Captivate tutorials and job aids to let people learn at their own pace, when they need to use the skills. Application training via a synchronous tool like WebEx, Adobe Connect, or Elluminate too often ends up with passive learners. I’m guilty of this myself too; I’ve done some boring synchronous training that didn’t offer any opportunity to practice skills. Tips for Effective Webinars. Lessons Learned.

Synchronous e-learning myths #1: One hour is enough for anyone

Clive on Learning

Well, because I couldn't have synchronous e-learning myths #2 and #3 but no #1. must admit that, up until the event, I thought I had a pretty good handle on how to use virtual classrooms and other synchronous technologies successfully. Clearly I was out of touch, because the various speakers showed how imaginatively the technology could be used and how synchronous e-learning could stand alone, not as a poor imitation of the face-to-face classroom, but as a valuable medium in its own right.
