Your Concepts to Change ‘Synchronous’


Bob Ubell began a dialog concerning the language we use to explain the completely different features of on-line studying.

His suggestion was to cease utilizing “synchronous” and shift to saying “on-line” when “referring to real-time educating in a classroom or nearly.”

I pushed again, floating “dwell.”

You had a lot better concepts.

Some ideas from colleagues, shared over Twitter and thru electronic mail:

  • Concurrent
  • Digital
  • Actual-time
  • Livestream
  • Distant dwell
  • Sync
  • Similar time
  • Online2G (as in “collectively”)
  • Distant dwell
  • C-to-C, for digicam to digicam
  • Dwell lessons
  • Distant instruction
  • On-line dwell
  • Dwell on-line
  • RTT—real-time know-how
  • Dwell classes
  • Direct (with asynchronous being “mediated”)
  • Dwell with out the drive (as in drive to campus)
  • Teacher-paced
  • Successive
  • Contemporaneous
  • Simultaneous
  • Synchronized
  • Sequential
  • Class-a-thon
  • Open-mic
  • Net conferencing
  • Holo-meeting (as within the holodeck from Star Trek)
  • Excessive-maintenance, ’trigger it is a lot work and also you by no means know what’s going to go fallacious subsequent.

Any lacking?

Any consensus?
