Some courses are face-to-face while others are virtual for winter quarter. To check how your course(s) will be delivered, consult My.Student Planning.
It’s best to check with your faculty members on what their arrangements are.
Please check with your instructor or advisor what their arrangements are.
In general, asynchronous refers to the idea that students don’t need to assemble at the same time to get the content. While recording may be one component of it, asynchronous learning also includes readings, worksheets, discussion boards, and so on.
Synchronous is closer to ‘live’. It can include Zoom lectures, simulations, group presentations, guest lectures, and more.
The Executive Speaker Series is exploring other formats this quarter, such as live streaming. We are complying with state and local health authorities to ensure that we follow their directives. The events can pivot to virtual as needed.
Other events being planned also have the option to pivot to virtual.
