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. In case you''re not familiar with the jargon, ''synchronous'' learning activities happen in real-time - they are ''live''. The defining characteristic of a synchronous activity is that all the participants have to be available at the same time. Synchronous events also act as milestones in a blended solution.

Asynch, Synch.And the Winner is?

eLearning 24-7

The key though is inherently tied to the two types of e-learning: asynchronous based learning and synchronous based learning. Synchronous Based Learning (SBL). How often have you heard the term “synchronous based learning&# and been told it is e-learning? It is not a web based training course, because if you were to take a deep dive at WBT, you will see it aligns more with something called Asynchronous Based Learning. Asynchronous Based Learning.

LMS are focused on online learning delivery including both asynchronous and synchronous training. These offer a cloud-based, personalized learning environment to promote skill development beyond compliance-based employee training.

The difference between designing online and face-to-face workshops

The eLearning Nomad

In fact, we might even argue that in some ways the learning experience can be enhanced through providing more opportunities for each individual learner to reflect and contribute when the engagement is asynchronous (at different times) rather than synchronous (at the same time) – the shy learner often blossoms online! If you’re developing compliance training, you don’t need to worry about this level of learning design. Happy New Year to all of you, dear blog readers!

MOOCs in Workplace Learning – Part 1: Some Points to Consider

ID Reflections

They can be “semi-synchronous”: MOOCs can have a blend of modalities from videos and podcasts to reference links to blogs and articles, excerpts from books, whitepapers and so on. Some of these discussions are asynchronous as in the case of forums giving workers the opportunity to respond at their own pace, and some may be synchronous giving distributed employees an opportunity to interact with their peers and colleagues around a topic over a google hangout session.

New MOOC Research: What the Findings Mean for Corporate Training

Your Training Edge

Asynchronous delivery is more effective than synchronous delivery. Asynchronous courses, like MOOCs, may work better than synchronous online courses. Asynchronous courses may work better because people want to have control over their own time and schedule — convenience is one of the top reasons people sign up for online courses. Whereas the former might be required in certain circumstances for compliance, what we really need to focus on is the latter.

Tips to Transform Instructor-Led Training to E-Learning

Capytech

Synchronous e-learning – synchronous e-learning brings together the best elements of instructor-led learning and e-learning, without the need for any participant to travel. In synchronous e-learning, learners complete an e-learning course while connected to a virtual classroom that has an instructor, facilitator, mentor, or tutor who can offer help or training in real-time. Compliance. Tips to Transform Instructor-Led Training to E-Learning.

Learning Delivery: E-Learning and Mobile Gaining Ground

CLO Magazine

CLOs shift their learning delivery based on audience and content and a small increase in synchronous e-learning or instructor-led e-learning. Last year, CLOs reported using slightly less synchronous and asynchronous e-learning than classroom based training, consistent with several years of slow gains and small retreats for both forms of e-learning. Compliance training is the only business skill content domain where C-ILT is not considered the primary delivery modality.
