Abstract

Asynchronous e-learning environments can be used effectively to minimize the effects of access problems and technical disruptions that may arise due to the fact that synchronous e-learning environments require simultaneous participation. Asynchronous e-learning provides learners with the opportunity to think more in the process of constructing knowledge and critical thinking in online discussion activities. Having more time for learners can provide an advantage in understanding others' comments and writing their own. The course contents can be updated at any time and delivered to the learners quickly without wasting time. However, there is limited communication and interaction. It is important that the interaction is at a good degree, with the right methods and tools in a quality that will ensure and increase learning, and that the interaction tools are prepared and presented in a way that will increase the participation of the learners, taking into account the preferences and individual differences of the learners.
