“…Students at all levels have found email to be an effective way for instructors to communicate with them (Chang et al, 2015), and Dahlstrom (2014) found that 99% of all institutions offering online courses utilize a learning management system (LMS) that includes native email functionality.

“…Bazı araştırmacılara göre; eşzamansız derslerle karşılaştırıldığında, eşzamanlı derslerin yaygınlaşamamasının nedeni, eşzamanlı derslerin yüksek maliyetler içermesi, bant genişliği sınırlamalarının olması, uygulamada karşılaşılan zorluklar, yetersiz araçlar ve zamanlama sorunları gibi çeşitli sınırlamalar içermesidir (Do, 2018). Ayrıca; çevrimiçi süreçlerde, eşzamansız derslerin esnekliği ve rahatlığının eşzamansız derslerin popülerliğine katkıda bulunması da (Chang, Hurst, McLean, 2015), eşzamansız çevrimiçi öğrenmenin yaygın biçimde kullanılmasına neden olmuştur (Do, 2018;Yamagata-Lynch, 2014). Ancak zamanla, eşzamansız çevrimiçi derslerle ilgili olarak yapılan uygulama ve araştırmalar, eşzamansız çevrimiçi derslerin öğrencilerin hissettikleri yalıtılmışlık duygusu, gecikmiş geri bildirim ve fiziksel iletişim eksikliği gibi kısıtlamalar içerdiğini ortaya koymuştur (Do, 2018).…”
