The importance of synchronicity

Clive on Learning

On both occasions, the idea that most got me thinking was that 'synchronous is sovereign'. I've had to work hard to buy into this idea, perhaps because I've been advising learning professionals for some time now to adopt asynchronous (self-paced) communication as their default, and to go synchronous (live) only when a strong argument can be made. So, don't push the slider from all synchronous to all asynchronous - find the right balance.

The role of collaborative learning in a social landscape

Kineo

At Kineo we’ve been considering how collaborative learning can be incorporated into our social strategy. But before we can do that we first need to define collaborative learning.

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.
