Asynchronous Learning

Asynchronous learning is an instructional design and delivery methodology that allows students to access content or participate in learning outside of the classroom and at their convenience, or independent of the instructor. Considered an alternative to live, or synchronous delivery of content, it is also referred to as eLearning, on-demand or self-paced learning. Asynchronous learning often requires a learning technology (such as an LMS/LCMS) for access to content, although technologies are not necessary for self-study.
