Online instruction helps teachers use their
time more wisely. A teacher could make a
video and have students watch it at home,

Synchronous vs achromous
Synchronous Benefits

Problem solving: The choice to deliver

courses synchronously or asynchronously
sometimes depends on the subject. In math or
the physical sciences, where much of the work
is based around problem-solving through
logical sequences or equationos, immediate,
synchrouns feedback from an instructor is
advantageous. My argument would be that
there are certain subjects, given their very
nature, that are more relatable or more
appropriate for synchronous work.
Synchronous archives
Just because instruction is delivered in a
synchronous manner doesnt mean it has to
disappear into a vacuum. The best
synchronous instruction, whether a video
lecture, a live chat, or a webinar, can be
archived for students to recall in an
asynchronous matter, (1010)
