Course Flow Synchronous Asynchronous Semi-synchronous Students do all work at the same time as everybody else Students do everything at their own pace and have no deadlines Students do some parts of the course at their own pace and do other parts of the course on a fixed schedule • Good likelihood of peer support as all at same stage • Expect deadlines are fixed • Work at the pace set by lecturer, not at own pace • Work at their own pace • Limited peer support as others may be at different stages • Can finish “later” but procrastination leads to not finishing • Instructors release course materials on a fixed schedule, student can work on it anytime after • Live events e.g. Q&A sessions happen at a fixed date and time, archive versions • Assessments due by a fixed deadline Google (2013)
