      The Value of Synchronous  Learning Environments by  

                SYNCH AND SWIM_baw11.odp                              

     Michael made a very good case for synchronous online classes and communication, talking to us on                                        Yahoo Messenger.  Always within the context of blended learning, it was pointed out that synchronous

     communication encourages more immediate involvement  in the learning process, makes the social aspect

     of learning more satisfactory and enhances the sense of community among learners. If used appropriately, 

     synchronous environments can offer a wide range of motivating activities, often in a more convenient,

     practical manner than a face-to-face class. Despite the technological requirements synchronous learning

     requires - in terms of skills and equipment - using such environments can be both rewarding and effective;

     at least, that's been my own experience with synchronous online teaching so far :-)
