Asynchronous learning is a method of learning that uses online learning resources to facilitate information sharing outside the constraints of time and place among a network of people. It uses methods like email, and conferencing software. Even though asynchronous learning is a student-centered teaching it does not impose a real time interaction between the student and the teacher.
Asynchronous distance learning occurs when the teacher and the pupils interact in different places during different times. Asynchronous e-learning makes it possible for learners to log on to an e-learning environment at any time and download documents and send messages to teachers or colleges.
