Communication is one of the most important activities in an e-course – it helps to alleviate loneliness, ensures that necessary information is delivered to the right people at the right time, and helps to create a functioning learning community.
Communicating in an e-course may be synchronous (happening in real time) or asynchronous (with a delay). For real-time communication, the participants should use the same resource at an agreed time. This enables immediate contact and quick exchange of information, yet it sets temporal and technical restrictions.
The descriptions of activities can be found in the menu on the right.
