eLearning Glossary: Definitions for the Most Commonly Used Terms

Association eLearning

Asynchronous/ Self-Paced Learning- Asynchronous refers to eLearning offerings you take on your own. Pedagogy- The art or practice of teaching. If you’re new to eLearning or online training, it can seem like you’re wading through alphabet soup with all the various anagrams and terminology used in this industry. SCORM, LMS, AMS, LCMS, API, JITT, what does it all mean?! Grab a spoon, and let’s dig in to the soup, with this eLearning glossary.

Thirdly, all of the content that is created on the surface can be recorded and then shared in a number of ways, not just via the SMARTboard screen, but also on the personal screens of students present or absent, synchronously or asynchronously, because it can be disseminated widely through multiple digital formats. Simply being exposed to the use of new technologies may promote some innovative thinking about alternative pedagogies.

The ‘Role’ of Compliance

Clark Quinn

Much like I really think the problem holding back better for-profit schools is that the accreditation process isn’t informed enough about pedagogy, I think the agencies that oversee required learning don’t really focus on the right thing. You can use scenario tools for asynchronous situations, or just traditional role-play in the classroom. I’m not an expert on compliance training. I haven’t suffered through it, and I haven’t been asked to design it.

The popular sequence of events that I have recounted is often represented pictorially as a gradient, accompanied by that ubiquitous table comparing various aspects of the three pedagogies. Sure, the gradient reflects a wonderful growth of ideas, but I think it’s a trap to conclude that the latter pedagogies supersede the former. For example: Discussion forums (synchronous or asynchronous) allow the learner to ask questions, clarify concepts and share experiences.

New MOOC Research: What the Findings Mean for Corporate Training

Your Training Edge

Pedagogy is more important than technology. 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.

Among its approaches, the pedagogy of empathy is one that can be implemented even in simplified elearning solutions. An empathic pedagogy has been shown to benefit feelings of trust, enjoyment of study, motivation and engagement in learning, the development and strengthening of a bond between teacher and learners, the creation of a positive learning environment, the development of a sense of belonging to the group, the valuing of learning, and educational success.

Pedagogy: Derived from the Greek for ‘to lead’, pedagogy is a teacher-centred approach to educational activities in online and face-to-face environments. In eLearning, pedagogy involves selecting the best methods to convey information to learners.
