The learning potential that new technologies bring to the world of eLearning is changing rapidly. Advances in technologies now allow us to present information and ideas in new and engaging ways, and create better collaboration between students and instructors. We can bring together learners from around the world to converse, debate, share applications, demonstrate techniques, sing together, laugh out loud, work in small groups, problem solve together, and share documents all in real time. People are no longer faceless names on a screen, but are real personalities working and learning together in a genuine interactive classroom. This session presents guidelines for creating a rich, dynamic, and engaging synchronous classroom. Ideas for activities, hints for implementation, demonstrations of software and “lessons learned” from 10 years of synchronous teaching experiences will be included.
