Asynchronous learning describes educational activities, discussions, and assignments that engage students in learning at their own pace, on their own time.
Today’s workforce is expected to be highly educated and to continually improve skills and acquire new ones by engaging in lifelong learning. Asynchronous learning as a part of E-learning, which is learning and teaching online through network technologies, is one of the most powerful tools for the growing need, particularly in higher education.
With the advent of Covid19, e-learning seems to be a new normal to impart education for acquiring new skills and exploring new career options. E-learning plays a vital role in academic activities for students. In this regard and as a part of the academic excellence, the Indian Academy Degree College – Autonomous (IADC-A) has created Asynchronous learning that includes short videos and animated videos on important topics identified in various subjects across programmes it offers, which provide a basic idea to students who can learn at their own pace. The institute realises the fact that not every student learns the same amount of content at the same pace as others. Flexibility is one of the key benefits of asynchronous learning. A learner enjoys freedom and at the same time has better control over his learning.
