This study aimed to identify students' perceptions regarding synchronous and asynchronous
e-learning resources at higher education level.
Simply forming an asynchronous
discussion forum, providing the technology, and a question or topic of discussion is not enough to ensure success in an asynchronous
discussion (Guldberg and Pilkington, 2007).
Impacts of college-level courses via asynchronous
learning networks: Some preliminary results.
Next, I briefly overview the course platform, and finally, I discuss how I have used asynchronous
tools, including threaded discussions, announcements, and email both to facilitate community in the online classroom and to manage my teaching time more efficiently.
replication can scale to support one-to-many (data distribution) and many-to-one (data consolidation) configurations, but support for remote offices is still problematic due to the 'always on' nature of real-time replication, which consumes network resources on a constant basis.
The OS and driving software applications also need to send asynchronous
I/O commands to the storage device to take advantage of NCQ.
They can spontaneously contribute ideas and build upon their classmates' messages and engage in sustained communication due to the asynchronous
nature of CMC (Schlagal, Traten, & Blanton, 1996).
Three of the papers explore the architecture of globally asynchronous
locally synchronous (GALS) systems.
Distance and social class play a limited role in student interaction, which is advantageous to asynchronous
