Abstract

Asynchronous learning has become prominent in higher education. It allows for students to learn when the time is convenient for them. Previously, most asynchronous classes have involved assignments, discussion boards and limited instructor feedback, which offered limited student engagement. Currently, the majority of students that are enrolling in asynchronous classes are those that are considered Digital Natives. Because technology is second nature to them, it is much more challenging to keep them engaged with the traditional structure of asynchronous learning. This paper discusses the best practices and creative ways to engage students in asynchronous learning environments.
