Students who are introverted or take longer to participate in class discussions, as well as those who cannot attend a synchronous course at a specific time and location, can both benefit greatly from asynchronous coursework. Among other qualities, asynchronous online learners need to be at ease working by themselves, be self-directed and motivated, and have solid time management abilities.
