Teaching and learning as two educational activities are centrally important in education quality. However, the two often occur in separate timing and in the implied ordering of teaching first and learning happens afterwards. This paper proposes a concurrent teaching and learning approach via synchronization of the slide presentation by teacher and tag addition by students. Better learning is attained when students increase their active learning with tagging at the same time that students are in attendance of lecture. The synchronization is AJAX-enabled.
