Asynchronous learning allows you to learn on your own schedule, within a certain timeframe. You can access and complete lectures, readings, homework, and other learning materials at any time during a one- or two-week period.
"Academic" Education is generally defined as education that has learning as its primary purpose. Some institutions and educational systems have equated academics with "university " but this is not always the case. This differs from Vocational education which has a primary focus on "preparing to perform in a workplace"; or "life education" which may have a purpose of preparing to live better. These different education approaches have their origins very much in the past, but are still (unfortunately) often adhered to by many existing educational systems. The modern world has however changed dramatically and the rate of change continues to accelerate. It would stand to reason that these "old" concepts for differentiating types of education need review, if not outright change
Built-in Course Authoring
Built-in authoring offers limited course authoring functionality, which means they are easy to learn. Using a built-in authoring tool allows you to build and publish directly within your system, usually via drag and drop functionality, so you can quickly build a basic course.
Blended learning combines online and offline access, so your system has to be accessible via laptops, tablets, and smartphones. It differs from other traditional software, which doesn't always have a 'portable' component, and from traditional face-to-face learning, which needs no online tools at all.
