Flipping the higher ed new normal: from synchronous to asynchronous education

I am on the west coast. There is a student down the street who goes to Cornell and is now doing online classes. She has instructors who are doing synchronous classes… which means she is up and online at 5 AM to attend lecture.

It sucks.

I am strongly advocating for the asynchronous approach with my colleagues, and most of them get it thankfully.

*Yes, for years I have considering setting up a counter-clock Future Trends Forum to serve Asia, as well as being easier on Australia and parts of Africa and Europe. Let me know if you’re interested.
