Blended Learning Basics: Using Asynchronous and Synchronous Training Activities

Convergence Training

One of them is to think of when the learners will benefit from an asynchronous learning experience and when they’ll benefit from a synchronous learning experience. Now let’s learn a little more about when to best use asynchronous and synchronous learning events.

Learning Assessment Using Brain-Computer Interfaces: Are You Paying Attention?

Dan Keckan

The combination of the synchronized electrical activity of all the neurons in the brain - brainwaves - can be captured in real-time using Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs). eLearning Trends Brain Facts Cognitive Load Theory eLearning Assessment Wearable TechnologyPortable and affordable BCIs emerged recently, and have the potential to objectively quantify attention and improve learning. This post was first published on eLearning Industry.

Subsequent work on the theory has revealed that cognitive tools (learning with, rather than through technology) can be applied to amplify the ''situatedness'' of learning, by providing active, engaging contexts.

Psychologists and cognitive scientists have offered a number of useful theories that aid our understanding of learning. In this post we return to the cognitive domain, with an examination of Allan Paivio''s theory of dual coding. In 1986 he stated: ''Human cognition is unique in that it has become specialized for dealing simultaneously with language and with nonverbal objects and events.

In my last post I featured Bärbel Inhelder''s work on deductive reasoning and her work with Jean Piaget on the formal operations stage of cognitive development. In this post, we will explore the work of Carl Jung on archetypes and synchronicity. Known as synchronicity , Jung''s theory was that the seemingly random yet synchronised occurrence of two events could be related to a higher degree than mere chance. Synchronicity has been experienced by many people.

At Play – Storytelling And Story-making

Upside Learning

The use of stories and metaphor definitely play an active role in human cognition and learning. What’d make a really cool learning tool is a collaborative story-making and telling tool that works in both synchronous and asynchronous modes. In my recent play sessions with my six-year old (soon to be seven) I realize that one critical element of children’s play, and indirectly learning, is the ability to tell stories and just plain make them up going along.

I’m actually impressed, because in addition to the asynchronous and synchronous sessions I knew about, there are a number of other things going on. I’ve created some short videos that talk about, and illustrate, a number of things our cognitive architecture has to account for.

Accessible eLearning creates an online learning experience that includes as many people as possible regardless of their limitations—whether physical, sensory, or cognitive. In this case, you need to provide synchronized captioning. Use synchronized captions for any video in your course. Whether you develop eLearning for a corporation, academic institution, or government agency, you’ve likely encountered the challenge of developing accessible content.

Blended Learning: Must Know Strategies That Engage Learners

While one can benefit from the implementation of a synchronous online learning strategy, one also gets the chance to bag advantage from the “self-decided pace” techniques that are an integral part of an asynchronous learning strategy. Since blended learning can work with synchronous and asynchronous approaches, it is able to offer more opportunities for students to boost skills and use them. . In today’s digital age, learners are fascinatingly complex.
