Hi Dr.Beatty,

Thanks for sharing and describing how asynchronous and synchronous lessons work in SFSU! Just like what you mentioned, audio could be even more important than videos for students who are trying to follow along. This makes me think about the trending concept of metaverse, where the user can be in a virtual environment and do all sorts of things as if it’s the real world. For example, one can make conversation to another user in a virtual classroom setting. There hasn’t been a complete metaverse project being put out by mainstream tech companies yet, but I cannot help thinking about all the possibilities it could bring to education, especially distance education in either synchronous or asynchronous setting.
