Abstract

The paper discusses the relationship between interactivity and synchronicity in online and distance learning. While there is a common perception that synchronous teaching, as exemplified in the traditional face-to-face classroom is ideal, modes of online learning that can exploit the advantages of asynchronous learning. Different modes of learning are compared using an interactivity/synchronicity grid. While synchronicity and interaction are related, some modes of online learning can have a high degree of interactivity without being synchronous.
