Stick, Sheldon L.; Ivankova, Nataliya V.
Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration, v7 n4 Win 2004
The manuscript explains the rationale, development, and success of a computer-mediated asynchronous learning (CMAL) program of graduate studies in Educational Leadership and Higher Education offered through the University of Nebraska-Lincoln . It details the evolution of the concept focusing on an integrated sequence of high-quality learning to: (1) enhance student learning experiences; (2) provide greater accessibility by removing barriers of time and space; (3) deliver learning opportunities to participants around the world on a conventional university semester schedule; (4) develop learning cohorts representing many cultures and nationalities; (5) foster active and substantial participation in the learning process; (6) provide multiple pathways to learning; and (7) facilitate the development of a world-wide community of learners. The Program allowed for asynchronous interactions, and enabled students to access the contributions of all other participants. Additionally, there were opportunities for real-time technology-based collaboration between and among participants.
