Asynchronous learning mode is a popular E-learning mode. It provides flexibility in terms of geographical location and time for learning. At present there are issues related to implementation of asynchronous E-learning techniques. A number of issues or problems are identified in this article, and their related solutions are proposed. This proposed solution is being promoted to enhance learner’s interest, motivation and intern performance of the learner. A good system always has less human intervention, and the problems should be robust in nature. In this proposed research work, we have identified problems regarding time delay, for the learning material delivered such as videos. A new framework has been proposed to alleviate this problem with the help of metadata and instructional objective (IO). The objective of this work is to support proper learning application. The paper proposed a technique that shows how this problem may be resolved. Progress of performance has been shown in the result.
