Asynchronous conferencing is the formal term used in science, in particular in computer-mediated communication, collaboration and learning, to describe technologies where there is a delay in interaction between contributors.
Collaborative software or groupware is application software designed to help people involved in a common task to achieve their goals.
Computer-mediated communication (CMC) is defined as any human communication that occurs through the use of two or more electronic devices.
Computer-supported collaboration (CSC) research focuses on technology that affects groups, organizations, communities and societies, e.g., voice mail and text chat.
Computing is any goal-oriented activity requiring, benefiting from, or creating computers.
Educational technology is "the study and ethical practice of facilitating learning and improving performance by creating, using, and managing appropriate technological processes and resources".
Electronic mail (email or e-mail) is a method of exchanging messages ("mail") between people using electronic devices.
Instant messaging (IM) technology is a type of online chat that offers real-time text transmission over the Internet.
Internet radio (also web radio, net radio, streaming radio, e-radio, IP radio, online radio) is a digital audio service transmitted via the Internet.
Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is an application layer protocol that facilitates communication in the form of text.
A MUD (originally Multi-User Dungeon, with later variants Multi-User Dimension and Multi-User Domain) is a multiplayer real-time virtual world, usually text-based.
Multi-user software is software that allows access by multiple users of a computer.
Online chat may refer to any kind of communication over the Internet that offers a real-time transmission of text messages from sender to receiver.
A podcast, or generically netcast, is an episodic series of digital audio or video files which a user can download and listen to.
SILC (Secure Internet Live Conferencing protocol) is a protocol that provides secure synchronous conferencing services (very much like IRC) over the Internet.
SIMPLE, the Session Initiation Protocol for Instant Messaging and Presence Leveraging Extensions, is an instant messaging (IM) and presence protocol suite based on Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) managed by the Internet Engineering Task Force.
Usually used in reference to a computer application, a text-based application is one whose primary input and output are based on text rather than graphics or sound.
Videotelephony comprises the technologies for the reception and transmission of audio-video signals by users at different locations, for communication between people in real-time.
A virtual world is a computer-based simulated environment which may be populated by many users who can create a personal avatar, and simultaneously and independently explore the virtual world, participate in its activities and communicate with others.
Web conferencing may be used as an umbrella term for various types of online collaborative services including web seminars ("webinars"), webcasts, and peer-level web meetings.
Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) is a communication protocol for message-oriented middleware based on XML (Extensible Markup Language).
