  1. 1. Learning Modalities Comparison
  2. 2. Introduction  Use of Microsoft PowerPoint in asynchronous and synchronous learning  Slide Share allows access to tools such as PowerPoint anytime and anywhere  Slide Share also supports PDF’s, webinars, videos, and documents
  3. 3. Advantages of AsynchronousLearning Allows students to communicate with other students at his/her convenience Students can access course information at a moments notice Permits busy parents, full-time workers, and disabled people the opportunity to attend school
  4. 4. Disadvantages toAsynchronous Learning Students must be self-disciplined and take responsibility completing work on time Students may not be comfortable with the technology needed to be successful in this environment
  5. 5. Advantages to SynchronousLearning Students feel connected by having “real- time” discussions with the class and instructor Course can be molded to fit the level of students in class
  6. 6. Disadvantages to SynchronousLearning Not all students will be up-to-date on newest technology needed for the classroom Time zone differences may make it difficult for all students to attend class Some students may not have Internet speeds that are as fast as others
  7. 7. Facilitation Strategies Synchronous Learning  Instructors must track participation while session is taking place  Responses to students happen quickly, with little time to prepare Asynchronous Learning  Instructors and students have more time to prepare a response  Instructors are able to view students responses less stressful environment as the time constraints are not as rigid as in synchronous learning
  8. 8. Differences in Facilitation Synchronous Facilitation  Instructors have a live audience  Must be prepared for immediate responses to students  Must be able to answer all questions immediately Asynchronous Facilitation  Facilitator is a guide in the classroom  Responses and answers to questions can be prepared and fine tuned before posting
  9. 9. Differences in Learners Synchronous  Works well for students who want immediate feedback  Students enjoy real time learning  Learners prefer a structured environment Asynchronous  Works well for students wanting flexibility as to when they are online  Students who prefer self study and reviewing responses before they are submitted
  10. 10. Conclusion Slide Share is a useful web tool as it allows participants to comment on the slide show after it has been viewed Slide Share works well in both the synchronous and asynchronous learning environments This tool can be utilized by all colleges and universities to enhance student learning
