When should Asynchronous Instruction be considered?

Here are some points to consider when using Asynchronous Instruction.

When to Consider Asynchronous Instruction

Recording Lectures for Student Viewing

Instructors, especially those teaching large lecture-based classes, may choose to record and post lectures for students to view, rather than delivering the lectures synchronously. VoiceThread and Zoom may be used to capture these recordings, which may be shared easily via either of these tools.
Leading Asynchronous Discussions Online

Instructors may engage students in online asynchronous discussions through threaded discussions within VoiceThread. Faculty may develop specific assignments and grading rubrics around asynchronous discussion assignments.
Providing Additional Course Content Asynchronously

Instructors may also rely on additional readings, videos, and activities to replace activities that would normally occur during course meetings.  VoiceThread may be used to encourage creative asynchronous engagement with course material.
