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.

How to become a better asynchronous e-facilitator

The eLearning Nomad

Yet, in the online learning context there is a tendency to view all asynchronous e-learning as equal and ignore how different sectors apply this approach differently. So how do we become better asynchronous e-facilitators? In asynchronous communication, it’s sometimes easy to forget that a conversation is a two-way street. Just because we have the technology doesn’t mean we need to watch every single move by our learners.

Emerging Asynchronous Conversation Models

Tony Karrer

I had an interesting conversation with Patrick Randolph from TalkWheel about different kinds of asynchronous conversation models that are emerging and how they might fit into broader eLearning Initiatives. While Twitter is asynchronous, it's not easily used as other kinds of tools for discussion. The standard model for asynchronous conversations is discussion forum software like vBulletin. Talkwheel is made to handle real-time group conversations and asynchronous ones.

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. Furthermore, because until recently there were no technologies to mediate this process, they'd also have been face-to-face. On the other hand, asynchronous learning in centuries past would have been individual and reflective.

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.
