The purpose of this chapter is to discuss the enhancement of asynchronous online discussions and assessment using multimodal interactive tools that allow text, video, and audio posts. The integration of these multimodal interactive tools as well as their affordances could lead to powerful changes in the learning experience of students interacting in asynchronous online environments. Along with providing an overview on asynchronous online discussions, the chapter will include a review of how multimodal interactive tools are used to engage learners in online discussions using text, audio, and video. Additionally, the chapter will describe both the benefits and challenges of asynchronous online discussions with text, audio, and video posting. Furthermore, the chapter will describe how the same multimodal interactive tools can also serve as an assessment method in asynchronous online learning of specialized subject areas.
