An Asynchronous Augmentation to Traditional Course Delivery.
Wolverton, Marvin L.; Wolverton, Mimi
Asynchronous augmentation facilitates distributed learning, which relies heavily on technology and self-learning. This paper reports the results of delivering a real estate principles course using an asynchronous course delivery format. It highlights one of many ways to enhance learning using technology, and it provides information concerning how students accept and use unique an otherwise unfamiliar learning tools. The data reveal modes of access to course materials, how learning resources were used and valued by students, how this distributed learning course compared to traditionally delivered courses on several dimensions, and open-ended student comments (both favorable and unfavorable). The goals established at the outset of course development are compared with outcomes reported by students over a three-semester trial, and informed conjectures are provided regarding the costs and benefits of developing an asynchronously augmented real estate principles course. An illustration is provided depicting animated lecturing on urban sprawl, and three tables provide information on access to course materials, use and value of learning resources, and comparison with traditional course delivery.
