The Learning Hub: Issue 02

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?


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