Microsoft Teams meeting

What is a synchronous course?  These are listed as SYNCH in the schedule.  Synchronous courses are taught online, usually through video conferencing like above, and meet during the time on the schedule. These courses might be a good choice for students who need something on their calendar to keep them engaged in learning.  Students will be able to interact live with the professor and other students in the course. 

What is an asynchronous course?  These are listed as ASYNCH in the schedule.  These courses do not regularly meet at a given time, so students are able to work on the course materials on their own time within predetermined time frames. This might be a good choice for students who are good at learning independently or have an unreliable work schedule that might keep them from meeting regularly in a synchronous course, for example.
