Synchronous vs Asynchronous WHat A Teacher Needs to Know

The traditional classroom: One teacher presents lectures and feedback to dozens of students at the same time. Question and answer sessions either are too individualized or not individual enough.
Asynchronous delivery: The teacher creates lessons that can be housed and re-delivered whenever/wherever , and as frequently as needed for review. Specific feedback and interactions between teacher-student/ student-student facilitate individualized learning.

To ensure the best experience in a blended environment, students must be trained to be more self-sufficient in reading and viewing course materials independent so that teachers can devote time to individualizing feedback and preparing materials.

Students gain more ownership. Teachers can time to devote to personalized feedback. Quality material libraries provide opportunity for review.
