What you need to know about your classes

Synchronous and Asynchronous online classes:

  • A synchronous online class meets at a set time each week in the same way an in-person class would. In contrast, an “asynchronous online class” is one in which students access course materials at a time of their choosing and are not required to interact with one another (or the instructor) at set times.


How will I know if my online class is synchronous or asynchronous? 

  • Synchronous courses will appear as “synchronous” and “online” in the Student Hub (see image below). Asynchronous courses will be listed as online courses. This change will be implemented by April 10. Please check your schedule after that date for information on the course delivery method
