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.

The spectrum between synchronous and asynchronous training

Matrix

The very first step to take when designing asynchronous training experiences for remote learners is to decide where exactly on the synchronous-asynchronous spectrum the new online training course needs to be. The spectrum between synchronous and asynchronous training. The same is true with synchronous and asynchronous learning: it’s not A or B; there’s actually a spectrum in between. Pure asynchronous. The hybrid asynchronous model.

Reflections on the ‘New Groupthink’ and lessons for asynchronous collaborative e-learning

The eLearning Nomad

But the mighty force that pulled these trends together was the rise of the World Wide Web, which lent both cool and gravitas to the idea of collaboration. We failed to realize that what makes sense for asynchronous, relatively anonymous interactions of the Internet might not work as well in face-to-face , politically charged, acoustically noisy confines of an open-plan office [my highlight]. I re-read Susan Cain’s ‘Quiet: the Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking’.

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.

Synchronous and Asynchronous Learning: Benefits and Limitations

Asynchronous and online should be the default to argue against

Clive on Learning

But most of our routine meetings are not in this category - we can get along just fine using Skype, or some more sophisticated form of web conferencing. Another default position should be communicating asynchronously. Asynchronous comms, using email, forums, social networks, blogs and wikis, allow us to regain control of our time. Asynchronous and online. Live, face-to-face communication has always been the default for human beings. At one stage it was our only option.

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. Asynchronous activities, on the other hand, are self-paced; they allow the learner to determine when and for how long they undertake self-study activities or communicate with fellow learners or trainers. Like each of the recommendations in this series, the change from synchronous to asynchronous represents a movement of a slider, not a switch on or off.

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.

Can web training software replace your offline training?

Not all of them, of course, and not in equal measure in different parts of the world, but any business that has seen the advantages that web based LMS platforms bring to the table in terms of time, cost and training efficiency is not going back anytime. That’s why one of the best features of online learning is its asynchronous (the opposite of “synchronous”) nature. The post Can web training software replace your offline training?

Terms e-Learning Designers Should Know

Mindflash

e-Learning: e-Learning is a broad term used to describe learning that occurs through the use of electronic means, which can include web-conferencing, CD-ROM, and web-based training. e-Learning can be referenced as instructor-led training (ILT), web-based training (WBT), and even computer-based training (CBT). 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.

In response to The importance of being synchronous

ID Reflections

I will reiterate the focus of the post here just to keep myself on track: asynchronous communication is not the focus of this blog, so we’d better find some equivalent arguments to justify communicating in real-time, when we don’t usually have a record of what is said and done, when all participants have to be available at the same time, when communication has to be spontaneous, when the pacing is inflexible and when there is no rewind button.
