A: Real Time refers to synchronous teaching, where the facilitator and the Participant are "present" (ie logged in) at the same time. You'll use this feature if you want to actively manage the session while it is running, eg by launching new questions or batches or reacting to participant contributions. A facilitator can only ever have one Real Time activity running at once, but there is no limit to how many self-paced activities can be run concurrently. Self Paced activities are designed to be run without the facilitator being logged in. The Participant simply processes the activities entirely in their own time. Otherwise, there are no differences.
