The importance of synchronicity

Clive on Learning

Over the past couple of months, I have twice been fortunate enough to hear Professor Stephen Heppell speak, once at the 25th birthday party of the eLearning Network and again last week when I chaired his session at Learning Technologies. On both occasions, the idea that most got me thinking was that 'synchronous is sovereign'. Having said that, I'm not convinced that synchronous events are all that exciting when the experience is no different from a recording.

Asynchronous media work at your pace – there is no requirement for you to be ‘in synch’ with anyone else. Synchronous experiences, whether face-to-face, online or on the telephone, enrich a blend and provide it with momentum. Next : Keep all ideas about technology out of your mind until you’ve fixed on a suitable method.

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). Furthermore, because until recently there were no technologies to mediate this process, they'd also have been face-to-face.

Technology Advancement and Learning – Help or Hindrance?

Integrated Learnings

On a recent trip to Jekyll Island, Georgia, I had the opportunity to reflect a bit on how far we have come with technology. I also thought about how far technology has come in just under 100 years of that first phone call. There have been many leaps forward in technology for learning in the past 10 years. So, why do we as learning professionals tend to ignore these principles just to use the latest and greatest trends in technology? By Dean Hawkinson.

Terms e-Learning Designers Should Know

Asynchronous: Asynchronous learning is a method that uses on-line technology to facilitate learning outside the constraints of time and place among a network of people. Asynchronous learning is also known as self-paced learning. Examples of technologies that can be used to facilitate asynchronous learning include learning management systems, enterprise social networks, wikis, blogs, on-line discussion forums, and even email.

Many types of borders (binaries) exist in 'the blend', including those between personal/social, learner as producer/consumer of knowledge, synchronous/asynchronous, local/global, closed/open, real life/virtual and local/distance. It is only since the advent of telecommunications that we have begun to recognise some of the complexities that result from our engagement with technology.

The Advent of Mobile Learning Technology

Upside Learning

It seems the younger members of the workforce prefer synchronous (real-time) collaboration tools over asynchronous tools. With pervasive data access enabled by networks, work can begin in earnest to provide applications that realize the potential of mobile technologies. Perhaps 2010 will be the year when it really explodes on the scene and forces us to really think about what mobile technology can do for learning. “May we live in interesting times” –Chinese Proverb.

SimWord of the Day: Asynchronous Learning

The Learning Circuits

Asynchronous is a form of communication that is turn-based , not real-time. Letters and emails are asynchronous while phone calls and instant messenger chats are synchronous. Originally, asynchronous learning referred to a style of formal learning where the student and instructor has regular interactions, but the interactions were separated by delays of hours, days, weeks, or months. Increasingly, asynchronous also means a type of learning that is self-paced.
