Pitfalls of Asynchronous Learning

Just so we’re on the same page, virtual learning environments and micro schools are the future of learning.

That said, we currently face several pitfalls of asynchronous learning:

  • We feel less accountable
  • There is less accountability (this is a distinct from “feeling” accountable)
  • In mandated courses, engagement will waiver and is difficult to assess
  • Teachers who are used to physical learning environments feel disconnected…teaching in a void
  • Perfectionism can multiply workload

What are the solutions? There are many.
