Learning can be synchronous (facilitator and participants online at the same time) or asynchronous; self-paced (participants study on their own schedule without interacting with a facilitator or other participants) or facilitated, or a combination. Also called distancelearning and e-learning. Face-to-face learning – Facilitator and participants are together in a room. Also called in-person, classroom2 based, and traditional.
