Designing and Facilitating Synchronous e-Learning

Syn­chro­nous means occur­ring or exist­ing at the same time. Syn­chroous e‑learning, com­mon­ly sup­port­ed by vir­tu­al class­room or webi­nar tech­nolo­gies, pro­vides a live, online learn­ing expe­ri­ence in which an instruc­tor and a group of learn­ers inter­act and speak in a vir­tu­al class­room from dif­fer­ent places. Design­ing for and facil­i­tat­ing in a syn­chro­nous event is dif­fer­ent than oth­er online learn­ing. The focus shifts from push­ing infor­ma­tion our to cre­at­ing inter­ac­tive and col­lab­o­ra­tive expe­ri­ences. This requires a new look at the design and facil­i­ta­tion as well as the tech­nol­o­gy tools used to deliv­er live events. This course is deliv­ered ful­ly online in week­ly syn­chro­nous ses­sions.
