The Growing Popularity of Asynchronous Learning: A corporate learning perspective

G-Cube

The meaning of the word ‘asynchronous’ is ‘not at the same time’. In the context of learning, it is used when a learner completes a learning initiative on his own time and schedule – without the intervention of an instructor.

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.

Our online learning events are designed differently and this shapes the e-facilitation methods used. But there is a lot we can learn too.

Online Learning Activities to build Learning Communities

TalentLMS

Online learning is seldom complete without reinforceming activities which provide evidence that learning did take place. When designing any online activity with social media as an engagement strategy, the instructor must bear in mind Bloom’s Taxonomy (Sylvia, 2014).

4 myths on how to spice things up in online learning

The eLearning Nomad

How do we make an online course exciting? Most articles in the e-learning sector focus on self-paced e-learning modules (e.g. Articulate), webinar presentations, or academic asynchronous e-courses.

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.
