At the core of NIIT Imperia's educational delivery methodology is state-of-the-art Synchronous Learning technology.  Having designed and used Synchronous Learning technology for many years, NIIT Imperia has built around this technology a unique learning methodology and student experience that includes the best features of conventional classroom education coupled with advanced e-learning and learning management techniques.

At the core of NIIT Imperia's educational delivery methodology is state-of-the-art Synchronous Learning technology.  Students attend classes conducted by institute-faculty and delivered using the Synchronous Learning platform.  Dedicated broadband two-way audio-video is used to create remote classrooms that are linked LIVE to teachers in the institutions. The technology permits full features of face-to-face teaching: from a raised-hand-seeking-teacher's-attention, to tabulation of responses to quizzes randomly created by the teacher.

Individual assignments and presentations are other components of the methodology.
