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.

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. The most obvious examples are classroom courses and on-the-job training sessions, but also in this category we must place the use of the telephone and live online tools, such as instant messaging, Skype and virtual classrooms. Aligned : There''s no real change here, because synchronous and asynchronous activities can be equally well-aligned.

Welcome to Synchronous E-Learning Month

Bottom-Line Performance

It’s different from asynchronous learning where participants access materials on their own schedule. From the eLearning Guild’s Handbook (which is a great FREE resource), synchronous e-learning includes things like: instant messaging. web conferencing. It’s exploding in the business world as virtual web meeting technologies become more prevalent and easy to use. Most of the work was asynchronous.

Web-based learning. This form of training is accessed via web browsers or through the corporate Intranet. The compatibility of web browsers with videos, audios, animation, and other media elements, make it a user-friendly medium to deliver the training. It allows learners learn at their pace and the training progress is tracked by the computer, hence assigning grades instantly. In simple terms, it is a blend of synchronous and asynchronous learning.

This will keep the content new and dependable, and the online learners will have instant access to current information. The two major types of e-learning include: Asynchronous training. Asynchronous training: the process that allows learners to complete their web-based training without the help of instructor through live interaction. It allows student-student interaction via message boards, discussion forums, and bulletin boards.

3 Reasons Curatr Doesn’t Have A Discussion Forum

HT2 Labs

Using content curated from around your organisation or the wider web, Curatr allows course designers to challenge learners to take part in conversations and contribute back to the learning environment with content of their own devising. Here content is a by-product of conversation; attachments in instant messages, for example. This was cool as heck – it did a slack-style asynchronous / synchronous style of communication.

Training Method Trends

and Asynchronous (self-paced, online courses/courseware) are both going up a little, but actually shows slower rate of growth than classroom. I actually believe that mobile delivery will become more important over the next few years, but the form of it will be web access, not specialized mobile learning applications. Wikis are almost flat - weird - especially given some of the well known government case studies around use of Wikis.

6 Effective Ways To Increase Employee Productivity
