Some courses are face-to-face while others are virtual for spring quarter. To check how your course(s) will be delivered, consult My.Student Planning.
This depends on your faculty. Some classes will be asynchronous, therefore that would be a ‘no’. Some classes might be limited synchronous, e.g. a few times during the quarter. Others will be a combination of face-to-face, synchronous, and asynchronous.
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 having live events which are also live streamed on YouTube. 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.
