The creation of asynchronous virtual content can be one of the most efficient and effective means of delivering learning content to a diverse array of employees. There are great benefits to both synchronous and asynchronous virtual learning, but the question remains: is asynchronous virtual content a viable solution for your learning and development needs?

The primary purpose of this session is to provide a specific framework that organizations can use to answer this question. To do this, we will discuss 3 simple questions that organizations should consider before committing to the design, development, implementation and assessment of an asynchronous eLearning course:

  1. Should we create an asynchronous virtual course (i.e., is it the BEST solution for our learning needs or is there a better alternative)?
  2. Can we create an asynchronous virtual course (i.e., do we have the resources needed to create the course efficiently and effectively)?
  3. Which type of asynchronous virtual course should we create (e.g., the Full Course, the Short Course, the Mini-Course or the Microlearning Course)?

For each question, we will explore additional questions, criteria and information that learning and development professionals can use to make the best possible decision. This will include the identification of circumstances where asynchronous virtual content is most likely to yield outstanding results, discussion of the resources that are typically needed to create high-quality asynchronous eLearning courses, and a review of four types of virtual courses and the criteria we can use to decide which one will be most effective in a given situation.
