Online: Asynchronous vs. Synchronous

  • If the class lists "TBA" and not a specific day/time, your class is asynchronous and will not have a set meeting time. Course deadlines and participation expectations are set by the instructor.

  • If the class lists specific days and a start and end time, your class is synchronous and you are expected to participate in online class activities and lectures during that time.
