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.

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? Have a look through older posts in this blog for ideas on how to develop collaborative problem-based learning. They all write like they speak or they ‘ write for the ear ’. But don’t confuse this with messy writing.
