Synchronous Sessions

The Live Online model allows students the flexibility of logging into the courses remotely, but stills allows to real-time engagement with their instructor and fellow learners.

  • Students are expected to log in at certain times during each class meeting.
  • Instructor teaches in "real-time"
  • The course is an online class but has a specific day and time when the students meet with their instructor in an online meeting room.


"Synchronous" is when everyone meets at the same time (whether in a face-to-face or online classroom environment).
