Synchronous vs. asynchronous learning
Synchronous and asynchronous learning share many similarities. Both terms can be used to describe a type of remote learning that takes place online. The main difference between synchronous and asynchronous learning is when the lessons will be scheduled..
Benefits of asynchronous learning
Asynchronous learning is unique from other teaching methods which take place in-person or in real-time. An asynchronous course doesn’t need to adhere to a rigid schedule, removing the logistical hurdles that come with more traditional forms of education. Without these restrictions, a remote asynchronous format offers significant benefits in terms of time, efficiency, and productivity.
