Asynchronous Transparency Shifts Enterprise Conversations Away from the Oral Tradition

Portals and KM

Now with the increasing use of social media, asynchronous transparent conversations are on the increase. Each new advance in communication and learning technology has expanded the possibilities for communication, knowledge capture, and distribution. In each case it took a while to understand the possibilities and the implications. Much of sensitive communication with most enterprises occurs through direct person-to-person conversations, or at least through emails.

Technology: post-it exercise to introduce the dynamics of asynchronous online communication

Joitske Hulsebosch

In my 'round' we used an idea that I picked from my recent workshop facilitating online interaction [link] : to use post-its for simulating the experience of asynchronous onl ine communication in a face-to-face group.

Can you engage introverts in social learning?

Joitske Hulsebosch

These too are part of social learning, but they contain almost all an asynchronous aspect or an aspect where finding out by yourself is a part. Maintain a good balance between asynchronous and synchronous learning.

Voicethread: a creative way to use video online in training or workshops

Joitske Hulsebosch

It is an asynchronous tool , which means everyone responds to his own time , in that sense it is not a substitute for Skype or google hangout with video because those are synchronous video conferencing tools. With a group I explored the creative use of video by trainers and facilitators.

Emerging questions on Emergent Learning

In the following asynchronous discussion forum, we hope that you will share your footprints, so that we can critically reflect on the approach, and methodology, in order to improve it and to continue to make it accessible, available and relevant to the broader research and design community.

Academic BEtreat (#betreat12) pre-conference call

The format is similar to the format for last year, although I think there is more asynchronous time built into the programme this year and more time for reflection – which is good. We will be able to do some of this work asynchronously. The Academic BEtreat is underway.

I met David Woolley online years ago, thanks to a connection through Nancy White. Among other things, David hosts an excellent Web Conferencing Review reference site for systems we can use to connect at a distance.

Tips for online decision making

Digital Habitats

As Ellen Ullman points out, this inability to be interrupted makes hackers somewhat asynchronous to one another – at least in the short term (Ullman 1995:132). This is reflected clearly by the fact that all of the Ubuntu hackers’ preferred on­line communicative means are textual and thus – at least to some extent – asynchronous. Email, newsgroups and web forums postings and bug tracker comments are all based on users reading and replying asynchronously.

Academic BEtreat – the technical challenges

Jenny Connected

MOOCs allow for asynchronous distributed learning, interspersed with synchronous online presentations and discussion. Perhaps the balance between synchronous and asynchronous, integrated and non-integrated face-to-face and online participation in this BEtreat needs to be reconsidered. Academic BEtreat has got off to a shaky start, with lots of technology difficulties. There are sixteen people in this BEtreat (18 if you include Etienne and Bev) and 8 of those are online.

Where language comes too short…

Bas Rues

When you think about online means of discussing, debating, or other kinds of asynchronous communication, it is hard to express yourself as you precisely mean it, and maybe even harder to interpret the text in the way the sender meant it. It can get even more complicated if there is being a response which is asynchronous as well and that communication suffers from the same expression and interpretation problems.

Social media for trainers: think differently!

Joitske Hulsebosch

Energy can come from a new activity, a new tool, but also about using a mix of synchronous and asynchronous activities (synchronous may be online and face-to-face), in other words, being together simultaneously or not. I did a workshop last Friday on the conference ' Trends voor Trainers '. The topic was: social media as learning instrument. Amazing that I don't have to translate the title of the conference for you, I'm sure you can make sense of it in English!

Research is scary!

Jenny Connected

We are a group of people who have never met and are conducting this study mostly asynchronously on a wiki. We have launched our CCK08 survey today. Did you blog or post to the moodle forums, or both, or neither during the CCK08 course? It seemed to us that there must be very few courses that offer participants the choice of where they want to communicate, and that it would be interesting, if not important, to investigate the possible reasons behind the choices that were made.
