Can MOOC be designed as asynchronous courses

All the MOOC courses I registered are synchronous courses. They require me to finish in a certain time frame. I often found sometimes I am busy or lazy and therefore missed schedules or deadlines for some activities. If missing too many, I just give up the courses.

Why not asynchronous? as we do at AU for undergraduates. If so, I might could have more chances to finish my MOOCs.
