The Moment Is Primed for Asynchronous Learning
Inside Higher ED | September 12, 2020 - Experts argue that asynchronous learning is a valuable tool, especially now. But it needs to be done in a thoughtful way to help students succeed.
Most instruction at community colleges remains remote this semester as the COVID-19 pandemic stretches on.
Some are concerned that remote instruction will further widen equity gaps among students. Previous research shows that students who take courses online are less likely to persist than their peers who take courses face-to-face, and underrepresented minority students have lower performance than other groups, like Asian American students, in online courses.
