Emerging Asynchronous Conversation Models

Tony Karrer

I had an interesting conversation with Patrick Randolph from TalkWheel about different kinds of asynchronous conversation models that are emerging and how they might fit into broader eLearning Initiatives. Talkwheel is made to handle real-time group conversations and asynchronous ones.

Reflections on the ‘New Groupthink’ and lessons for asynchronous collaborative e-learning

The eLearning Nomad

We failed to realize that what makes sense for asynchronous, relatively anonymous interactions of the Internet might not work as well in face-to-face , politically charged, acoustically noisy confines of an open-plan office [my highlight]. The post Reflections on the ‘New Groupthink’ and lessons for asynchronous collaborative e-learning appeared first on DynaMind eLearning. I re-read Susan Cain’s ‘Quiet: the Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking’.

Asynchronous social learning is newer than you think

Clive on Learning

For those of us who have spent a number of years working in online learning, the idea that a group can collaborate asynchronously (not in real-time) on a learning activity is rather taken for granted - not so much 'old hat' as just nothing novel. On the other hand, asynchronous learning in centuries past would have been individual and reflective. Asynchronous self-study was supported first by books and then, in the twentieth century by all kinds of tapes, discs and films.

Strategies for transformation 2: from synchronous to asynchronous

Clive on Learning

The second step on the route to transformation is a shift from interventions that are synchronous to those that are asynchronous. Asynchronous activities, on the other hand, are self-paced; they allow the learner to determine when and for how long they undertake self-study activities or communicate with fellow learners or trainers. Like each of the recommendations in this series, the change from synchronous to asynchronous represents a movement of a slider, not a switch on or off.

Asynchronous and online should be the default to argue against

Clive on Learning

Another default position should be communicating asynchronously. Asynchronous comms, using email, forums, social networks, blogs and wikis, allow us to regain control of our time. So, my suggestion is to start off by assuming that work will be carried out asynchronously unless a strong argument can be made for getting together live. Asynchronous and online. Live, face-to-face communication has always been the default for human beings.

The eLearning Nomad

Asynchronous (not at the same time) methods on the other hand support this need for time much better. Asynchronous means reading and writing. This works well online, provided the framework (in which to do the work) is well designed and is run asynchronously (remember, people need time to do this well). Participatory means providing the opportunity for people to be involved in deciding how something is done. The term is mostly used in politics and training/education jargons.
