Companies that have worked for years remotely know that you cannot replace 10 physical meetings with 10 zoom meetings. You need more asynchronous communication.
Same in edtech
The solution is to reduce "live" events.
But in general, (the numbers at @CodingBlocksIn backs it up), recorded content with notes and quizzes is preferred far far more.
And the reasons are exactly what I said
Network disruptions means instructor goes ahead, and you cannot catchup with that class anymore.
That adds to attention deficit in live sessions.
In a physical meeting harder to get distracted, in general
Many tools including YouTube automatically add subtitles to recorded content (very few systems, none free, can do live running subtitles). That makes it accessible.
The ability to pause for, rewind 10 sec is a superpower for learning
No distractions. No power cuts. Everyone is 100% here.
Babies cry for young moms.
Internet is slow for people in remote areas.
Not everyone can afford power backup.
All this tilts the balance of participation towards more privileged people, and hence not fair.
50 people sitting in a synchronised setup doing something linearly in the same speed could never have been the best way right?
In a physically close world, in a live world, your "presense" is often you turning on your video. Wearing good clothes, looking sharp, and raising your hand often and speaking.
Written communication. The ability to write down your question or the answer to someone's question, in detailed, crisp, unentangled words is a CRUCIAL skill, a SURPRISING number of people lack.
That's how you make yourself "felt present".
