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. In case you''re not familiar with the jargon, ''synchronous'' learning activities happen in real-time - they are ''live''. The defining characteristic of a synchronous activity is that all the participants have to be available at the same time. Synchronous events also act as milestones in a blended solution.

Tips and Tools for Synchronous e-Learning

Bottom-Line Performance

Higher education started out as all synchronous learning - and as they have branched into web-based solutions they have stuck with the synchronous model in many cases. Higher education folks have put some thought into how adult learning theory relates to synchronous learning tools and techniques. Instructors often play the role of facilitator; in synchronous environments scaffolding and structure is very important for success. SYNCHRONOUS LEARNING TOOLS.

July’s focus is on Synchronous e-Learning, better known as distance learning. Synchronous E-Learning Defined. You may or may not be familiar with synchronous e-learning. 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.

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. Historically, all social learning activities, whether one-to-one or group, would have been synchronous (real-time). On the other hand, asynchronous learning in centuries past would have been individual and reflective.

Can self-study be social?

Clive on Learning

In my last post, a review of The New Social Learning , I proposed that, with the rapid rush to using e-learning in the workplace, we are at greater risk of a surplus of isolated self-study than we are an explosion in the use of social media. In particular, I'm beginning to wonder whether self-study can feel social. Surely the same could be true for e-learning self-study content. Web 2.0 If it does, even self-study can feel like a social experience.
