  • 2. What are asynchronous activities ?
    • In the online classroom. . .
      • conversations which are not occurring at the same time
        • threaded discussions in which each participant posts comments, questions, thoughts, and responses when s/he is available to do so
        • Participants reply and post feedback to previous comments or add new messages when they are available to do so.
        • Postings are available to others in the group.
  • 3. Responding to postings. . .
    • Participants are not required to respond to every posting—only respond to those about which you have thoughts, ideas, or questions.
    • Time limits may be set for when the discussion may take place (i.e., over a week). BUT all participants in a group are not required to be online during a set, short period of time (i.e., an hour).
  • 4. Protocols: What to do
    • Post your thoughts, ideas, questions, when you have them.
    • Check the postings regularly—at least three times weekly.
    • Respond as often as you can.
  • 5. Protocols: What to do
    • Keep your postings to school-appropriate language and topics.

    • Provide answers to your peers’ questions when you can.
