Synchronous vs. Asynchronous Communication: How to Use Both to Absolutely Dominate Remote Work

TechSmith Camtasia

The answers often come down to the choice between synchronous vs. asynchronous communication. What is synchronous communication? Synchronous simply means that the communications happen in real time, with all parties engaged simultaneously. Synchronous vs. asynchronous?

ID Badges: My Experience with TIfPI’s Certification

Experiencing eLearning

Currently, the badges are all based on different types of deliverables: asynchronous e-learning, instructor-led training, coaching, job aids, community of practice, mobile learning, etc. For example, a normal badge for asynchronous e-learning would be ID(AEL); an outstanding badge would be ID(AEL+). I debated between going for the Asynchronous E-learning (AEL) badge and the Goal- or Problem-Based Scenario (GPS) badge.

Friday Finds: The Best of Learning, Design & Technology | April 17, 2020

Mike Taylor

In part 2 of this article, Patti Shank analyzes how asynchronous and synchronous tools support different types of learning interactions. She also describes the best ways to use asynchronous and synchronous learning.

How to Replace Meetings With Video-Based Discussions

TechSmith Camtasia

An alternative approach to meetings. One new way that TechSmith and other companies are overcoming some of these challenges is through asynchronous video-based discussions. Example of an asynchronous video-based discussion.

TCC08: Making Distance Learning Courses Accessible

Experiencing eLearning

Alternate methods of presentation & evaluation. Online course with asynchronous (LMS) & synchronous (Web conferencing). Create textual content in HTML, text, or accessible PDF (PDF needs to have the meta information with the text, not just an image of the text). Hearing and speaking during synchronous meetings. Alternative text for audio (i.e., Alternative computer input (too much to go into in this session–lots of options).

In Challenging Times: Make Lemonade in eLearning

Litmos

Asynchronous experiences may be different, but some authentic "voice" makes the experience more manageable. If there’s a synchronous cohort, do group assignments. These work better asynchronously, of course, but they can be leveraged synchronously.

10 Gamification Training Software

Ed App

Some of the game template examples that you can use for your own learning materials include letter jumble, find a word, next in order, true or false, image/word match, jeopardy, and elevator game. . Highlights: Gamified quizzes, live kahoots, asynchronous kahoots, multiple game templates.

The Building Blocks of a Successful e-Training Program

ICS Learning

The optimum solution may then be to reduce the required instructor-led training through the use of on-line (asynchronous) prep courses. A viable solution might be on-line, live (synchronous) instructor-led training combined with an easily updateable on-line reference library of sales support material and current promotional materials. Synchronous e-Learning. It should also be pointed out that it is possible to include video as part of the synchronous e-learning environment.

The Ultimate Glossary of eLearning Terms

LearnUpon

Asynchronous Learning. Asynchronous learning allows learners to train individually, enabling them to complete courses at a time, place and pace that suits them. Course builders allow you to combine elements such as text, image, video etc., Although this movement away from Flash will generate cost and complexity for eLearning professionals, LearnUpon offers their customers a number of alternatives including support for HTML5 content delivery. Synchronous Learning.
