The Growing Popularity of Asynchronous Learning: A corporate learning perspective

G-Cube

The meaning of the word ‘asynchronous’ is ‘not at the same time’. As technology advanced, the modes of delivery of Asynchronous Learning have evolved from one-to-one communication i.e. via telegraph and telephones to one to many through radio or television broadcasts to the current trend of many-to-many through networks such as Facebook and Twitter. In corporate learning, the success of Asynchronous Learning has been tremendous. Asynchronous Learning through Mobile Devices.

Ad-hoc Social Learning Environment - How a Blog Drives Learning

Vikas Joshi on Interactive Learning

We decided to outline our curriculum in a skeletal form using a blog, and then set social interactions in the curriculum context. Blog is the watering hole A learning blog is so much a happening place! The blog has a personal touch, it is easy to follow, its updates are delivered to participant's RSS reader instantaneously.

MOOCs in Workplace Learning – Part 1: Some Points to Consider

ID Reflections

I have been writing about MOOCs in the space of corporate learning for some time now. They can be “semi-synchronous”: MOOCs can have a blend of modalities from videos and podcasts to reference links to blogs and articles, excerpts from books, whitepapers and so on. A set of videos accompanied by some reference links to blogs and articles, recommended books, podcasts, etc., MOOCs – you can love them or hate them but you can definitely not ignore them.

Digital Participation

Your Training Edge

These kinds of participation entail affiliation with the online platforms like Facebook, or games; the activities where participants are able to develop new kinds of expression through fan-fiction writing, zines, mash-ups, collaboration, where learners are able to work with one another to complete tasks or develop skills and knowledge, like when using gaming, Wikipedia and other activities and where users shape the flow or distribution of media via forms like blogging and podcasting [1].

The Training Manager’s Guide to Accessible Elearning

The Learning Dispatch

He frequently shares about accessible elearning development through our Learning Dispatch blog and newsletter. Courses can be short (minutes or hours instead of weeks) and often self-directed (with learners setting their own pace) and asynchronous (not linked to a set schedule). In this guide to accessible elearning, I’ll talk about elearning in general, with more of a focus on a self-directed, asynchronous approach than on one that incorporates an active instructor.

Translating Activities Into the Virtual Classroom

ATD Learning Technologies

We have a lot of different media that we can leverage when we are putting together our digital learning journey, such as face-to-face training, virtual classrooms, e-learning, videos, podcasts, audiovisual presentations, reading materials, job aids, quizzes, and assessments. We need to rethink how we provide knowledge to our learners—something we can do more effectively and efficiently by providing the knowledge piece in an asynchronous or self-paced way.

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

ID Reflections

Whether it’s tweets from the Twitter feed, blog posts and articles, or the latest You Tube video and TED Talk, these essentially comprise nuggets and bytes of content in various forms that we pull from the environment and then string together to make sense and build a cohesive picture. Add to these the informal forms of micro-learning – short bursts of content created or curated by users like, podcasts, videos, blog posts, tweets, etc. What is micro-learning?

Build a better flipchart and the world will beat a path…

The Learning Circuits

As everyone on this blog knows, I'm eternally searching for a flipchart killer and have never failed to express my disappointment with the trends most of us (including myself) think will: do the job, convince people that it's sufficiently worthwhile (in terms of functionality) for them to adapt to, provide the comfort zone for them to adopt it as their standard landscape. One of the nice things about flipcharts is that they recode talking as writing and therefore require speech input).
