Blended synchronous learning - where remote students participate in face-to-face classes by means of rich-media synchronous technologies such as video conferencing, web conferencing and virtual worlds - is an emerging phenomenon in education. More and more teachers are attempting to teach in this challenging mode, but without any systematic research evidence to help guide their blended synchronous learning practices. The Blended Synchronous Learning Handbook is a definitive resource that addresses this issue. It includes a Blended Synchronous Learning Design Framework that offers pedagogical, technological and logistical recommendations for teachers attempting to design and implement blended synchronous learning lessons. It also includes a Rich-Media Synchronous Technology Capabilities Framework to support the selection of technologies for different types of learning activities, as well as a review of relevant literature, a summary of the Blended Synchronous Learning Scoping Study, detailed reports of seven blended synchronous learning case studies, and an in-depth cross case analysis to underpin the recommendations that are drawn.

This paper reviews the main benefits and challenges teachers, students and institutes may face while using blended synchronous learning and some possible strategies to overcome them. This paper also looks at the main factors to consider for designing effective blended synchronous learning. For example, having common display across all users, choosing a suitable platform and features, modes of blended synchronous learning. Strategies like: enhancing students' and teachers' e-learning competence, explaining the structure of the course to students, teachers' preparation and delivery of lessons and support from various parties, can be used to effectively carry out blended synchronous learning.

"In this book, Alba Girons and Nicholas Swinehart provide an introduction to how to each languages in what is called a "blended synchronous learning" (BSL) environment, in which both face-to-face and remote students participate in the same class simultaneously, often via video conferencing. Universities and colleges are increasingly turning to this mode to teach languages with lower enrollments. It provides flexibility for students who are geographically dispersed and allows instructors to reach a larger audience, which is especially attractive for less commonly-taught languages (LCTLs). This book will be of interest to language instructors and program administrators, as it is a concise beginner's guide to BSL in the L2 classroom--how to set up a BSL environment for success and the pedagogical considerations necessary to creating meaningful learning experiences for face-to-face and remote students alike. Topics covered include: the benefits of teaching in BSL environments, how to prepare to teach in a BSL environment (including, training, technology, and pedagogical considerations), and the challenges that a new BSL instructor may face in this teaching environment"--

This is a practical introduction to blended learning, presenting examples of implementation across a broad spectrum of disciplines. For faculty unfamiliar with this mode of teaching, it illustrates how to address the core challenge of blended learning—to link the activities in each medium so that they reinforce each other to create a single, unified, course—and offers models they can adapt. Francine Glazer and the contributors to this book describe how they integrate a wide range of pedagogical approaches in their blended courses, use groups to build learning communities, and make the online environment attractive to students. They illustrate under what circumstances particular tasks and activities work best online or face-to-face, and when to incorporate synchronous and asynchronous interactions. They introduce the concept of layering the content of courses to appropriately sequence material for beginning and experienced learners, and to ensure that students see both the online and the face-to-face components as being equal in value and devote equal effort to both modalities. The underlying theme of this book is encouraging students to develop the skills to continue learning throughout their lives. By allowing students to take more time and reflect on the course content, blended learning can promote more student engagement and, consequently, deeper learning. It appeals to today’s digital natives who are accustomed to using technology to find and share information, communicate, and collaborate, and also enables non-traditional students to juggle their commitments more efficiently and successfully.
