An Affinity for Asynchronous Learning


Kate Daniels of FITS shared this piece of research (An Affinity for Asynchronous Learning) that makes five assertions about synchronous learning:

  1. Synchronous meetings are biased against certain time zones.
  2. Synchronous meetings are culturally unaware.
  3. Synchronous meetings are biased against families and busy people.
  4. Synchronous meetings that involve audiovisuals are elitist.
  5. Synchronous meetings rely heavily on linguistic capital.

Worth reading if deciding whether to teach asynchronously or synchronously.
