Coursework can be done in any order and any timeduring the semester, until the final due date.Information and response can be freeform, at to apoint.UDP is an example of an asynchronous protocol, lesssecure but much more lightweight than TCP/IP.Asynchronous learning adds an element of fun andflexibility to the course that many students haveenjoyed.
1. Allowing students flexibility to do classassignments whenever they can during the semesteras long as its all done by end date.2. Instructor Studying the class and reflecting backresults - listing reactions and observations.3. Asking students to take action and monitoringresults via social media (listening systems).
