synchronous computer-mediated conferencing

Quick Reference

A form of computer conferencing where the participants have to come together at one time. A good example of this type of conferencing is Internet Relay Chat, where interactions are very much like those that occur during face-to-face conversations. This is in contrast to asynchronous computer-mediated conferencing where participants do not need to come together and where messages can be sent and read at will.
