Asynchronous e-facilitation: watching or listening?

The eLearning Nomad

Because to ensure people feel safe in your learning environment, you want to be considered a ‘listener’ not a ‘watcher’ Because whether people have or haven’t accessed the supporting resources is useless information.

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]. Instead of distinguishing between online and in-person interaction, we used the lessons of one to inform our thinking about the other. “.

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.

Informal, Formal – End 4 E-Learning

eLearning 24-7

I mention all of this, because we are forgetting about why formal and informal training came into play. That with change, and technology as a component, learntech to be exact, we must avoid wax of days gone by, with the keeping of informal and formal for online learning and immersive to boot. This is where informal and formal learning first made their arrivals present. Then, ugh, give them an assessment at the end, and when they pass, you perceive they know the information?

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.

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. 100% online asynchronous based courses focusing on real world applications of learning. . How many of us have read it, see n it or heard it in the media?

Closing the Learning-Acquisition Gap with Informal Learning

Learnkit

To get it out of their heads, we need to shift our approach by making traditional formal training more flexible by incorporating more informal learning. This can be done by leveraging asynchronous and online learning components, and fostering more mentor-mentee relationships.

Is Asynchronous E-learning Better or Worse than a Traditional Classroom?

Beyond Campus Innovations

Is Asynchronous E-learning Better or Worse than a Traditional Classroom? In this article, we examine the pros and cons of brick-and-mortar education as compared to the modern, asynchronous, online classroom seen in e-learning. What is Asynchronous Education? An asynchronous education is one that puts the student in the driver seat. Students taking asynchronous courses are free to complete their coursework when it’s convenient for them.

How can we develop e-learning that respects adult learning principles?

The eLearning Nomad

Fidishun (an andragogy expert) says this means that “adult learners resist learning when they feel others are imposing information, ideas or actions on them.”. We build self-paced training on a backbone of mini-scenarios so the focus is on doing and inquiry rather than information. Asynchronous eWorkshops based on collaborative problem-based learning methods is one example that offers many opportunities to adhere to these principles.

Theory-informed design tips

Micro-Learning: Its Role in Formal, Informal and Incidental Learning

ID Reflections

Wikipedia With the rise of social and informal learning, and ubiquitous mobile devices (tablets, phablets, smartphones and everything in between), micro-learning as a concept and practice has taken off. Typically, micro-learning or learning bytes or learning capsules work well as a component of informal learning where the learner pulls what they need to solve an immediate problem. Micro-learning thus lends itself to formal, informal and incidental learning.

Test out asynchronous based learning with a few areas and see what happens.

The team work takes place in asynchronous (not real time) online discussion forums. Often, people reply with pointers towards pieces of information which may or may not be useful. Organisers would love to see more participation and often assume there is very little they can do to help their staff embrace informal social learning.

There are still many preconceptions regarding which types of tasks cannot occur online.

From e-tutor to e-facilitator: 4 things to un-learn

The eLearning Nomad

E-tutors with experience in providing support in academic environments often find it hard to write more informally in eWorkshops. By ‘informal’ I don’t mean messy. Because eWorkshops are asynchronous, they rely on written communication. Although interrupting is not an issue in asynchronous conversations, e-facilitators can still be tempted to jump into the conversations too early. There is more information on the training and mentoring page on the website.
