Distance Learning Glossary

Asynchronous: Class interactions happen via the Portal without real-time interaction. Students engage in class materials and complete work at their own pace, typically within a given time frame, often using discussion boards to drive peer-to-peer engagement.

Synchronous: Class interactions happen in real time, at the same time. Students may virtually attend class together via video conference, livestream or chat.

Screencast: A digital video recording of the teacher's computer screen, usually including audio narration. Screencasts are a form of instructional video. 

Video Conference: A virtual meeting in which participants in different locations are able to communicate with each other with audio and video.
