Synchronous Online Teaching
Synchronous online teaching occurs live and in real time supported by video conferencing solutions like YouTube Live, Go-to Meeting and Zoom. When used with an online teaching platform or learning management system, synchronous online teaching allows educators to replicate many of the experiences common to an in-person classroom.
Synchronous online teaching refers to the typical in-class experience. This method allows information and lecture presentations to be delivered virtually in real time. This creates a sense of intimacy and speed that is particularly effective for student engagement. Depending on supporting technology, educators can also directly respond to questions and discussions, provide feedback and use interactive click-on-target questions to gauge comprehension and ensure students are moving in the right direction.
