You know synchronous learning has reached new heights when Oprah announces that she is offering her first ever live, online class. Yep you read that right. Monday nights starting March 3rd Oprah and author Eckhart Tolle will be teaching a 10-week course based on the book A New Earth. Kind of exciting! I’ll be interested to see what platform they use and how the event is produced. Maybe Oprah can do for elearning what she’s done with bookclubs.
