Five Advantages of Asynchronous Learning
While both models have their place in education, today’s focus is on asynchronous learning and some of its benefits to students. Asynchronous learning offers a number of benefits.
Students Have Control of Their Learning
Learners have full responsibility for their education. Because they decide when and where they’re going to learn, students are active participants in their education.
Asynchronous Learning is Flexible
Flexibility is particularly important for students who have a myriad of other responsibilities during when lectures would usually be scheduled. Materials are available in a specific place, so students can log in and complete learning modules when they have the time. When learning is made convenient, students are more likely to stay on course, active and engaged.
Interactivity Can Be Built In and Encouraged Through Asynchronous Learning
Just because asynchronous learning isn’t in real time doesn’t mean it can’t be interactive. YuJa video enterprise solutions has features like in-video comments that allow users to share their thoughts and see other comments as they view; video quizzing in which if a student answers wrong the content is recapped; and interactive assessment capabilities within the video experience including creating video quizzes, inserting related documents, and making interactive comments.
