An online lecture is an educational class that is held online. Teaching and learning do not necessarily have to occur at the same time. Students can view a recording, sometimes referred to as a lecture capture, on their own time as long as they have access to WiFi. Other times, an online lecture may occur live.
An online lecture refers to a lecture delivered virtually as opposed to in-person. Online lectures may be asynchronous, in that students can watch a lecture at their own pace. Other online lectures may be synchronous, where students must be present at a specified time to view the lecture in real-time.
