The importance of synchronicity

Clive on Learning

Over the past couple of months, I have twice been fortunate enough to hear Professor Stephen Heppell speak, once at the 25th birthday party of the eLearning Network and again last week when I chaired his session at Learning Technologies. On both occasions, the idea that most got me thinking was that 'synchronous is sovereign'. Having said that, I'm not convinced that synchronous events are all that exciting when the experience is no different from a recording.

Second Life is a Synchronous tool which means, you need more than one person to make it work. Sure the technology works but its not productive or fun with one person. Second Life has come under a lot of attack recently because "it's empty." One especially hard hitting article How Madison Avenue Is Wasting Millions on a Deserted Second Life complained that "there's the question of what people do when they get there.

The 7 most important LMS features to support Synchronous Learning
