Asynchronous learning

Asynchronous learning is the name of a distance learning method where students learn at different times at different locations. It is also called "Location Independent Learning" and allows you to take online lessons on your own schedule.


There are fundamentally two types of e-learning. Asynchronous learning is the opposite of synchronous learning where all students gather to learn at the same time.


Asynchronous learning is carried out by using emails, threaded conferencing systems, and course management systems.
