Abstract

University of Maryland University College (UMUC) is a university with ~70K online students distributed throughout the world. Recently UMUC has integrated synchronous, or real-time, instruction into its fundamentally asynchronously-delivered online curriculum. This paper describes the transition process and assesses its results to date. Integration of synchronous instruction has gone well but remains a work in progress. Synchronous instruction is in supplementary use at an institution that remains primarily committed to asynchronous delivery of learning at a distance.
