In all courses included in this study, we can demonstrate that participation of the tutors in the activity of interaction in the asynchronous communication spaces is about 30% and that the primary interaction focused on the students (70%) and therefore it can be said that it is mainly them who are the agents.
Discussion boards and electronic letters to the editors were selected as samples of asynchronous communication. Obviously, there are other forms of CMC, for example personal e-mail communication, that could be extremely useful to learners.
How does online participation vary between different order bridges in synchronous and asynchronous communication mediums?
Coinciding with the growth of asynchronous communication, fostering mathematical discourse in the face-to-face mathematics classroom has grown considerably over the past 10 years (Elliot & Kenney, 1996; National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), 2000).
Asynchronous communication occurred via private mail and/or the WebCT Bulletin Board; synchronous communication occurred in chat sessions.
Additionally, Rovy Branon and Chris Essex ("Synchronous and Asynchronous Communication Tools in Distance Education," Tech Trends, 2001) noted that some cyber-learners do not check in often enough to carry the dialog forward.

The real-world library model, where asynchronous communication is encouraged but synchronous communication is discouraged (e.g., through prohibitions against talking and chat room discussions), would be augmented by the sharium service model where synchronous communication is fostered and facilitated, within established norms of acceptable social behavior, of course.
