I just used this today for a grammar lesson.  It was not necessary for the class feedback, but the novelty of it kept the students engaged. The instant audience response was fun to see and there was no messy set up with applications.  I will be using it again now and then to allow all students a chance to respond.

The rise of online education forces us to ask: What is a university for?

The rise of online education forces us to ask: What is a university for? | Latin Instruction in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

"Right now, online and hybrid offerings seem to be as good as standard lectures at transmitting this kind of knowledge, and, in the years ahead, they are bound to get better — more imaginatively curated, more interactive and with better assessments... The problem is that as online education becomes more pervasive, universities can no longer primarily be in the business of transmitting technical knowledge."

Synchronous vs. Asynchronous Classes

What’s the difference between synchronous and asynchronous classes? Which option is better? Don’t choose an online program until you’ve read this article.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, April 8, 2013 6:43 AM

Synchronous online classes are those that require students and instructors to be online at the same time. Lectures, discussions, and presentations occur at a specific hour. All students must be online at that specific hour in order to participate.

Asynchronous classes are just the opposite. Instructors provide materials, lectures, tests, and assignments that can be accessed at any time. Students may be given a timeframe – usually a one week window – during which they need to connect at least once or twice. But overall, students are free to contribute whenever they choose.

There are benefits and drawbacks to both designs. Some students like synchronous courses because they need to feel involved, in real-time, with the class experience. It’s rewarding to ask a question or offer a comment, and to receive instant feedback. For some people, real-time communication allows for more fruitful discussions.
