A Face-to-Face Digital Communications Lab was used by one set of students (Stage 1) to complete eight activity workshops that took them through synchronous and asynchronous web-cam language projects, and by a later set of students (Stage 2) to perform communication homework. For the Stage 1 workshops, a pretest and posttest were given to test for performance gains. An analysis indicates reasonable gains in understanding. The students also answered three evaluative questions. The responses include opinions supporting a positive outcome, and comments or suggestions on how the workshops and lab might be improved. For Stage 2, a pretest/posttest comparison group study was completed, comparing differences in language performance between students who only completed synchronous (live) homework assignments and students who only completed asynchronous (recorded) homework assignments. Results indicate that for conversation performance, synchronous homework may have been most beneficial.
