@harrisonmike So you is this best achieved by being online at the same time or asynchronously? #eltchat

rliberni

2:06 PM

@Shaunwilden @cerirhiannon  my personal experience is that it should be a mix or asynchronous and synchronous 4 best results #eltchat

harrisonmike

2:06 PM

@Shaunwilden Could be either. Online courses don't necessarily need funky tools or apps. Email discussion list could work #eltchat

Surely a good online  course should use Skype for real-time interaction? Do any of you use it?  #eltchat

The Khan Academy has a good philosophy http://t.co/mP5kSii #eltchat

opps to practice a lot n get real feedback NOT machine - that too. #ELTChat

AlexandraKouk

2:06 PM

@Shaunwilden both needed, I think: sync + async #edchat #eltchat

rliberni

2:07 PM

@Shaunwilden  I think most ppl choose asynchronous as synchronous can be more expensive but there are limits #eltchat

cherrymp

2:07 PM

@cerirhiannon that's a good point - user-friendly interface n tech support #eltchat

oxbridgetefl

2:07 PM

@cerirhiannon Yes, being online at the same time must be really useful. You could do it anywhere in the world at the same time? #eltchat

cherrymp

user-friendly interface and prompt tech support too I guess (from exp as online learner) #eltchat

esolcourses

2:07 PM

@cerirhiannon @Shaunwilden @harrisonmike  think asynchronous option is a big plus,  and should be built in #ELTChat

Shaunwilden

2:07 PM

@AlexandraKouk Ok  so which is done more? I'd have thought one ad is you can study in your own time but synch would stop that #eltchat

mcneilmahon

@gknightbkk need not be - why can't they be asynchronous? #eltchat

rliberni

2:09 PM

I think the key for successsful online learning is lots of support via skype, im, sms, email etc... #eltchat

AlexandraKouk

2:09 PM

@Shaunwilden perhaps have a class online , e.g. like on WiZiq, then use a wiki for async feedback, assignments etc. ?  #ELtchat

Shaunwilden

2:09 PM

@rliberni What are the limits? #eltchat

cherrymp

2:09 PM

@rliberni how does gp work happen? you mean there're couple of Ss attending at the same time from 1 place or many parts? #eltchat

Study asynchronous but help/instruction/clarification/feedback synchronous #eltchat
