Online courses from WebYeshiva, JTS are expanding learning options, but challenges persist.
For some students, Rabbi Chaim Brovender’s hour-long advanced Gemara class starts Sunday nights at 7 p.m.
Others show up at 10 p.m.
Meanwhile, the instructor begins the session bright and early the following day, at 5 a.m.
But all are participating simultaneously — just in different time zones and at different computer screens all over the world.
