Richard Larson, MIT’s Director of Advanced Educational Services relates cave drawings to asynchronous learning… “The blackboard is basically an adaptation of cave drawings. In thirty thousand years there has been the invention of the eraser. A lot of my colleagues say asynchronous learning is revolutionary, but cave drawings are an example of that. The artist shared what he knew about buffalo, or what-have-you, and the painting made it asynchronous. The printing press revolutionized asynchronous learning.”

And the web is rocketing asynchronous learning — and other modes of communication — to new frontiers.
