Recent rapid improvements in technology and the increasing bandwidth of Internet
access in most parts of the world have led to an increasing popularity for
synchronous solutions for instruction. But real-time instant interaction and
possibility of non-verbal information transfer has led to a change in paradigm
of how e-learning is being envisaged in its traditional sense. On one hand, it
lures academics to fall back to their traditional habits of face-to-face instructions
and on the other hand, it promises to provide the best of both worlds. Various new
challenges are emerging from the use of synchronous techniques along with some very
exciting opportunities of improving the quality of instruction and learning.

The special issue will focus on various innovative methods that are being designed
and investigated by researchers and the applications that are being developed and
implemented for synchronous learning. The issue will have a balance between the
theoretical aspects and the practical applications.
