Asynchronous learning pedagogy

Asynchronous learning pedagogy | Articles for my Master Studies | Scoop.it

Asynchronous learning pedagogy is defined as teaching and learning that occurs when the interaction between the instructor and students is not constrained by time and place. It is based on the constructivist theory, and is a student-centered approach that emphasizes the importance of peer-to-peer interactions. Zsohar & Smith (2008) have identified three distinct benefits of asynchronous learning: students: 1) have an increased amount of time to prepare their responses, 2) can not interrupt other students when posting or speaking, and 3) have access to all written records of all discussions for later references. Disadvantages of using asynchronous learning include: i) loss of direct personal contact such as eye contact or facial expression, ii) loss of spontaneity when responding to questions, and iii) limitations to the type of discussion faculty can pose (Zsohar & Smith, 2008 and Anderson, 2009).

Warschauer and Healey (1998) report that computers have been utilized in language teaching since 1960s. They then divide these longer years is into three main stages:

1. Behavioristic CALL

2. Communicative CALL

3. Integrative CALL

Behavioristic CALL, conceived in the 1950s and implemented in the 1960s and 1970s could be considered a sub-component of the broader field of computer-assisted instruction. This mode of CALL featured repetitive language drills, referred to as drill-and-practice. In this paradigm which is popular in the United States, the computer was regarded as a mechanical tutor which never grew tired or judgmental and allowed students to work at an individual pace. Behavioristic CALL was first designed and implemented in the era of the mainframe, but eventually modified and implemented to the personal computer. According to Ahmad, Corbett, Rogers and Sussex, 1985) PLATO was the best system which ran on its own special hardware consisting of a central computer and terminals and featured extensive drills, grammatical explanations, and translation tests at various intervals.

Cheatin in Online Courses

Students engage in academic dishonesty for numerous reasons. These include a wide range of academically unacceptable behaviors. This study focuses only on how students cheat on quizzes, tests, and exams while they were enrolled in online courses. Studies on why students take part in this type behavior have concluded that students do so because they can rationalize their behavior (Lindsay, 2008), their grade point average is important to them (Wotring, 2007), to remain academically competitive (McCabe, 2005), and reap the benefits of advancement (Willen, 2004). Other reasons for cheating include ineffective disciplinary actions taken by educational institutions (Etter, Cramer & Finn, 2006: Leonard, 2008; Leonard & LeBrasseur, 2008), and the differences in values placed on physical versus electronic property (Willen, 2004). As Fulkert and Kustron (2002) noted, most students now view Internet content as public domain and taking passages from various websites is not a vice.

When mobile devices are used in education it falls within the category of M-Learning. What is M-Learning? McConatha and Praul (2008), define mobile learning as learning accomplished with the use of small, portable computing devices. Lee and Chan, (2007) define it as “the acquisition of any knowledge and skill through using mobile technology, anywhere, anytime”. O’Malley defines M-Learning as any learning that happens when the learner is not at a fixed, predetermined location via mobile technology.
