Synchronous vs asynchronous elearning
AUGUST 22, 2013
In today’s elearning environment the type of learning that takes place is generally divided into one of two categories: synchronous and asynchronous. Any learning tool that is in real-time, such as instant messaging that allows students and teachers to ask and answer questions immediately, is synchronous. What is asynchronous learning? Asynchronous learning on the other hand can be carried out even when the student or teacher is offline.
