We all know that synchronous learning offers the best of both worlds. It means that it provides learners with all the advantages of traditional class room collaboration with teacher as well as the other students, and it helps in saving the cost of physically present instructor, which is a benefit of eLearning training sessions.
However, it is not always true that every synchronous e-Learning training program turns out to be successful.
To make the most out of it, there goes a set of smart strategies and tricks of synchronous learning, which enables the designers to incorporate all the available resources, content, techniques and technology into making it an efficient Synchronous eLearning presentation.
To give solution to all the problems faced during making a synchronous eLearning presentation, in this article we will get to know about different tips and tricks to up your game in creating synchronous presentations.
GOAL OR OBJECTIVE SETTING:
Like any other task, here in creating a synchronous presentation also, the first step towards designing a synchronous presentation is to set an objective that you want to achieve through this presentation. This goal should always be kept in mind throughout the process of creating the content and its learning plan.
With keeping this primary goal in mind throughout the process, you will have a direction to work towards and have a systematic strategy to design it in such a way that through this, you will know which learning methods will work the best in delivering the training and learning content.
GROUP PARTICIPATION RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES:
One of the best features that synchronous learning offers is that it provides the learners with the advantage of participating in recreational activities with a lot of people in real time. This environment created by synchronous learning presentation lets its students learn from the experiences of their peers and promotes interaction amongst each other even if every student belongs to different geographical location of the world.
By creating situations in which groups of students participate, it will enable them to develop the feeling and ability to work as a team. Group activities will in short facilitate learners to put forward their opinions and have discussions freely.
DESIGN A SYSTEMATIC BLUEPRINT FOR THE STUDENTS TO STAY ON TRACK:
One thing that should be kept in mind while making a synchronous learning presentation and which is generally forgotten about is that there should be blueprint designed for the students exclusively to keep a track of their training course or program. This helps students to know what they are going to learn in the presentation concerned and to stay on track with the course.
In case they miss a lesson, this blueprint will help them sort out what they could’ve missed and how to get back with the others. It should be created in such a format that it can be downloaded or can be seen on the portal easily. Introduction of blueprints to the course helps in motivating the learning lot. This is because by looking at the blueprint, students can make out how much they will be able to gain and by completing each lesson, they will be motivated to reach the end of the program.
Implementing these tips and tricks can certainly help designers in making successful synchronous eLearning and training content as well as presentations.
