The Learning Hub: Issue 02

In this week’s issue…

Synchronous vs Asynchronous Learning Online

Synchronous learning is like watching a feature-length movie in a theatre full of people. Asynchronous learning is like watching a Netflix movie on demand: pause, repeat, and rewind anytime on your terms. Which one is more flexible? More accessible? And which one is more valuable for students?

How do you choose between the two?

Remember:

  1. Keep it simple!
  2. Consider the pros and the cons
  3. Decide what works best for everyone
