'''Synchronous conferencing''' is the formal term used in [[computing]], in particular in [[computer-mediated communication]], [[Computer-supported collaboration|collaboration]] and [[Web-based training|learning]], to describe technologies informally known as [[online chat]]. It is sometimes extended to include [[video conferencing|audio/video conferencing]] or [[instant messaging]] systems that provide a [[text-based]] [[multi-user]] chat function. The word ''synchronous'' is used to qualify the conferencing as [[real-time]], as distinct from a system such as [[e-mail]], where messages are left and answered later.

Synchronous conferencing is the formal term used in computing, in particular in computer-mediated communication, collaboration and learning, to describe technologies informally known as online chat. It is sometimes extended to include audio/video conferencing or instant messaging systems that provide a text-based multi-user chat function. The word synchronous is used to qualify the conferencing as real-time, as distinct from a system such as e-mail, where messages are left and answered later.

Synchronous conferencing protocols include:

  • IRC (Internet Relay Chat)
  • PSYC (Protocol for Synchronous Conferencing)
  • SILC (Secure Internet Live Conferencing protocol)
  • XMPP (Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol)
