Maybe the ideal online Carpentries workshop looks nothing like the ideal in-person event! Alternatives might include:
A combination of e.g. recorded tutorials (rough, workshop-specific) and synchronous support through shorter meetings (similar to a ‘flipped classroom’)
A combination that replaces all fully synchronous meetings with an actively monitored chat or forum (e.g. Discourse)
Have you tried anything like this? What do you think?
Tool-specific comments also welcome – asynchronous support could also be offered to complement or follow a fully synchronous workshop.
