Through a multi-case evaluation of asynchronous
courses Garrison and Cleveland-Innes (2005) found that alone participant interaction does not inculcate a feeling of mutual social existence or involvement in online education.
This paper presents an experimental stand for computerized control and monitoring of an electric driving system equipped with a three-phase asynchronous
Therefore, we should expect that the roles that we take on as instructors will change, to some degree, when we deliver an online course and monitor an asynchronous
versus a live discussion.
The learning process, moderation and discourse patters in asynchronous
Web-based instruction, the entire course is asynchronous
in nature and delivered on demand.
Dubbed CNU ONLINE, this asynchronous
program allows students to access their classes via the Internet, download assignments to be completed offline, then reenter the system to turn in their work.
In online asynchronous
courses, instructors must realize that their quizzes/tests are potentially open-book unless they have students take quizzes/tests in proctored computer laboratories.
Approximately 40% of students preferred synchronous chat rather than asynchronous
discussion, 60% preferred face-to-face rather than synchronous chat, and 70% preferred face-to-face rather than asynchronous
This article explores the use of asynchronous
communication tools, including threaded discussions, announcements, and personal emails to create and maintain a high-tech, high-touch online classroom.
Real-time, or immediate, replication can be either synchronous (data is written to both storage devices at the same time, and the write operation isn't complete until both devices have completed writing) or asynchronous
(data is written to both storage devices at once, although the write operation is considered complete when the primary storage device has completed writing).
