Are facilitators willing to take the additional time needed to practice and prepare for a synchronous e-learning course? What’s missing that you always consider when developing synchronous e-learning?

3 LMS Must-Have’s to Support Synchronous eLearning

TalentLMS

With all of this flexibility and the ability to cater to each learner’s preferred learning style, most e-learning course strategies are divided into what is known as synchronous and asynchronous learning categories. The most successful e-learning courses create a combination that incorporates the use of both synchronous and asynchronous learning methods. What is Synchronous Learning? Which LMS Features are the Most Important for Supporting Synchronous eLearning?

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.

What is Synchronous vs. Asynchronous Learning and Why Should You Care?

Pract.us

You may have heard people talk about synchronous and asynchronous learning before. What is Synchronous Learning? Synchronous learning refers to the traditional classroom we all know and love. People are most familiar and comfortable with synchronous learning. Many managers default to synchronous learning because it’s what they know. Although we’re all familiar with synchronous training methods, we can’t be sure that classrooms provide the best learning value.

This type of e-learning, in which students and teachers interact at the same time, is called “synchronous” in the relevant jargon. ?n n this blog post we’ll describe some essential LMS features to support synchronous learning. When working with synchronous e-learning you need to keep your students “on the same page”, as the saying goes. Another great tool for synchronous e-learning is a shared whiteboard.

MOOCs for Corporate E-learning

Origin Learning

Flexible synchronization – MOOCs offer the benefit of courses to be synchronized among different learners taking a particular course, yet give them enough freedom to steer through the course as their schedules allow. The assignments, lectures and readings given to each learner are the same, but the learner has to complete them at his/her own pace within the given amount of time.

We should not equate online learning with asynchronous learning
