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

TechSmith Camtasia

While remote work and education aren’t new concepts, most of us hadn’t experienced the challenges (and —yes — rewards) of a fully digital workplace or classroom. The answers often come down to the choice between synchronous vs. asynchronous communication.

Synchronous Learning: Advantages & Disadvantages

eLearningMind

Synchronous learning describes real-time learning that takes place at the same time but not in the same place. Television is an early tool for synchronous learning. . In the 21st century—and right now during the COVID-19 pandemic—synchronous learning has seen a seismic shift.

The Growing Popularity of Asynchronous Learning: A corporate learning perspective

G-Cube

The meaning of the word ‘asynchronous’ is ‘not at the same time’. As technology advanced, the modes of delivery of Asynchronous Learning have evolved from one-to-one communication i.e. via telegraph and telephones to one to many through radio or television broadcasts to the current trend of many-to-many through networks such as Facebook and Twitter. In corporate learning, the success of Asynchronous Learning has been tremendous.

How is asynchronous learning progressing in times of pandemic?

Synchronous time is “premium time&# : if you just want “chalk & talk,&# just record it and let people watch on their own time.

Asynchronous Learning

Synchronous and asynchronous learning is a direct result of these developments. Synchronous learning refers to an educational setting with simultaneous collaboration across channels of communication which may be in person or online. Classroom lectures, live online lectures, live forum discussions or video conferences are synchronous in nature. Asynchronous learning is self-paced and does not require simultaneous collaboration.

The most successful e-learning courses create a combination that incorporates the use of both synchronous and asynchronous learning methods. What is Synchronous Learning? Which LMS Features are the Most Important for Supporting Synchronous eLearning?

The importance of synchronicity

Clive on Learning

Over the past couple of months, I have twice been fortunate enough to hear Professor Stephen Heppell speak, once at the 25th birthday party of the eLearning Network and again last week when I chaired his session at Learning Technologies. On both occasions, the idea that most got me thinking was that 'synchronous is sovereign'. Having said that, I'm not convinced that synchronous events are all that exciting when the experience is no different from a recording.

My Synchronous e-Learning “Two Cents”

Bottom-Line Performance

I completed my Masters of Education in Learning and Technology through synchronous (and asynchronous) e-Learning. As a working mother of two the main appeal of synchronous learning was convenience. I didn’t have to hire a babysitter, commute to/from traditional classroom, pay for parking, sit in traffic, or sit in a wooden desk chair for 90 minutes without a break.

On-Demand Learning vs Virtual Classrooms

The flipped classroom approach has emerged as a clear frontrunner! Flipped classroom learning isn’t all that new. So, what does it mean to flip your classroom? Flipped courses provide lectures and other informational material for learners to consume on their own time , via asynchronous self-study content, video-on-demand, or other similar means. Embracing the flipped classroom approach isn’t just about adopting a new fad or jumping on a bandwagon.

Why Create a Virtual Classroom?

TalentLMS

Thanks to the plethora of educational technology tools available, eLearning developers can quickly create a virtual classroom. The question is, why should you create a virtual classroom? Virtual worlds, virtual environments and virtual classrooms are suddenly the focus of all Internet technology design. Software engineers and user experience (UX) designers are trying to inch the daily technology solutions closer to the way that humans access and use it.

How to succeed with online learning for colleges and universities

eLearning 24-7

In today’s higher education e-learning world, synchronous based learning rules. In the end it is similar to what occurs in a classroom. In the group setting, what occurs in the classroom follows suit online. If a professor/instructor is outstanding in the classroom, then they tend to be outstanding with an online class/courses. The notion that it is easier to create an online course/class than teaching it in the classroom is absolutely bogus. Asynchronous.

Here’s an idea to free college: 100% asynchronous based courses (self-paced), yeah e-learning

eLearning 24-7

Each time, I do, the first thing that pops into my head is “e-learning” The second thing is “asynchronous based” – i.e. self-paced learning. There are some (low though) MOOCs that are asynchronous based, and based on some talks I had with students who went through them – they loved em. This approach is and has always been an angle for basically sticking the classroom online and calling it online learning.

Terms e-Learning Designers Should Know

Mindflash

Asynchronous: Asynchronous learning is a method that uses on-line technology to facilitate learning outside the constraints of time and place among a network of people. Asynchronous learning is also known as self-paced learning. Examples of technologies that can be used to facilitate asynchronous learning include learning management systems, enterprise social networks, wikis, blogs, on-line discussion forums, and even email.

Technology Advancement and Learning – Help or Hindrance?

Integrated Learnings

On a recent trip to Jekyll Island, Georgia, I had the opportunity to reflect a bit on how far we have come with technology. I also thought about how far technology has come in just under 100 years of that first phone call. There have been many leaps forward in technology for learning in the past 10 years. So, why do we as learning professionals tend to ignore these principles just to use the latest and greatest trends in technology? By Dean Hawkinson.
