AbstractOver the last ten years we have been exploring the educational use of asynchronous online discussion (AOD) at a university in Singapore. While the advantages of using AOD have been widely reported, the challenges or problems of using it have received lesser attention. This paper briefly reports the three main challenges we faced in actual lesson implementations of AOD in the last ten years. These challenges are “Assignment mode”, “No time for discussion”, and “lack of in-depth critical thinking”. In addition, we also made some suggestions to overcome them.
