Synchronous Sessions

Synchronous sessions are online classes and lectures that occur through video conferencing software like Teachmint. At the given time, students and instructors meet online and discuss the course of study, conduct question, and answer sessions, and have a lively interactive session, like an actual classroom. 

Synchronous sessions create a sense of pace and real-time classroom activity. It facilitates a sense of community and betters student learning. In other words, the synchronous meeting is a small group of meetings designed to help students, and develop stronger connections between teacher and student. 

This model of education based on Synchronous sessions is associated with distant education programs. However, with the advent of Edutech, even if the education program is now a distance program, students can still be a part of a real-time online classroom and ask doubts or hold discussions with their teachers or peers in real-time.

Through live-class applications and live lectures, students can receive instant feedback from educators and improve his/her skills. Alternatively, in asynchronous learning, lectures are pre-recorded where students can learn as per their time and usually have to mail their questions to faculty to get them answered. 

For example, during the pandemic, most schools and colleges have resorted to synchronous sessions, leading to a boom in the Edtech industry.
