Presentation title
What Difference Does It Make? A Comparison of Asynchronous and Synchronous Online Classes
Presentation abstract
Since 2020, the global educational environment, including Korea, has undergone a variety of changes, and many school levels have experienced sudden implementation of social distancing and online-only classes. However, as a result of social and educational efforts, the confusion in the early days of COVID-19 has been resolved and both students and teachers have become somewhat used to online-only classes. The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of two different types of online-only classes under COVID-19 situation: asynchronous video class vs. synchronous real-time class. 71 participants were divided into two groups; asynchronous (ASYN) class using video lectures prepared and uploaded by the instructor; synchronous (SYN) class via Zoom, a video conferencing platform. The improvement of English ability was measured and compared with pre-mid-post tests, and learner perception was examined with a 5-point Likert scale questionnaire. The results revealed that the SYN group showed higher test scores than the ASYN group and gradually improved. In addition, the SYN group perceived online classes more positively than the ASYN group. Based on comparisons of two online teaching methods, synchronous online class using video conferencing platforms seems effective as an alternative to traditional classroom lectures in terms of interaction and a sense of reality. Pedagogical implications are discussed for online distance learning in the post-COVID era.
