How to become a better asynchronous e-facilitator

The eLearning Nomad

It’s been 15 years since I read Gilly Salmon’s ‘E-moderating: The key to teaching and learning online’ which, back then, was the book to get you started as an e-facilitator. In other work/learning environments, we’ve had to adapt and come up with our own approaches – because an e-facilitator isn’t an e-tutor. Our online learning events are designed differently and this shapes the e-facilitation methods used. But there is a lot we can learn too.

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. There's obvious value in bringing the classroom collaboration dynamic to online learning. We also see it in twitter (see Twitter for Learning ). While Twitter is asynchronous, it's not easily used as other kinds of tools for discussion.

Online Learning Works – So Why are Schools Failing at it?

eLearning 24-7

If you believe what many school districts, governmental officials, and even some folks in the media, the whole idea around online learning, as a result of the closing of schools, is not only a fiasco, but something so new that it has sped up its usage by 15 years. . Anyone who has been involved with online learning in the education sector knows full well that this is false. E-Learning (the actual term) for online education started in 1993.

Synchronous or Asynchronous Learning – How to Make the Right Choice?

CommLab India

Online learning is not the next big thing, it is the now big thing.” The demand for e-learning is growing by leaps and bounds. Organizations across the globe continue to adopt online training at a rate of 13% per year, a pace that is expected to stay consistent throughout 2017. There are n number of online learning techniques, each with their own benefits and limitations. The best choice in this case would be asynchronous learning.

How do I know what e-learning approach is right for what topic?

The eLearning Nomad

The vast majority of online articles about e-learning are about compliance training or academic e-courses, so why would you do things differently? Consider the online training you’re about to develop… what do you want to achieve and what approach would be best to do this? Behaviour change is complex because there are a whole range of factors that influence people’s attitudes – not just the few you can offer in a typical e-learning module.

‘Discussion forum': don’t let the name of the tool put you on the wrong learning design track

The eLearning Nomad

They’re usually called discussion forums or discussion boards and are the most commonly used tool for answering questions as well as for any conversations we have in an online learning space. To keep with the name, discussion forums are generally used for a discussion activity. The term discussion forum implies that the tool has to be used for discussions. Yet, this isn’t a learning task. Discussion’ isn’t really a learning task.

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. But in the grand scheme of things it's a relative newcomer and - as is becoming increasingly apparent as I talk to those learning professionals with no online experience - not an obvious thing to do.

A (e-)tutor might also help you with learning to play guitar, or a new language, etc. The most commonly used online equivalent of the face-to-face university lecture is a ‘content + discussion forum’ model. Instructions are most often along the lines of “read these papers first and contribute to the discussion in the forum next”. The fundamentally different approach to learning design impacts on the range of skills involved to effectively support these models.

Universities’ e-tutoring methods should not be used in facilitated professional development

The eLearning Nomad

In most online courses at universities, tutors set a minimum number of discussion forum posts per week. This is bad practice in an adult learning environment. This means that we have to work much harder to design learning tasks that give learners plenty opportunity to want to write multiple times. I explore the task design issues a little deeper in this blog post of a while back: “Post once, reply twice”: uninspiring online discussion boards and what to do about them.

Live online learning is the bridge

Clive on Learning

If there is widespread resistance to the idea of self-paced e-learning, you could consider using live online learning as a bridge. When you move from instructor-led interventions in the classroom to self-paced content accessed online, you are making two major changes at once: not only are you shifting the medium (from face-to-face to online) you are making an even more substantial change to the method (from instructor-led to self-paced learning).
