Summer and Fall 2022 Course Schedules

What Does that Mean?

Asynchronous: Class is not held at specific times. If a class is described as asynchronous, that means it is online and you do not have set meeting dates. These classes provide students with flexibility and require good time management skills, as you will have to complete assignments by scheduled due dates.

Synchronous: Classes occur in real time. If a class is described as synchronous, that means you will be expected to attend that class, whether in person on campus or online through Zoom, on specific days and at specific times.

Hybrid: Classes that combine different instructional formats. These classes provide students with the opportunity to spend some time interacting with their instructors and classmates in person on campus or through Zoom and also experience part of their class online through asynchronous learning.

Bimodal: Classes that give you a choice. Bimodal courses are taught on specific days at specific times, however, it is up to you to decide if you want to attend that class by going to the designated campus or through Zoom. You can choose either option throughout the semester.

Canvas: Canvas is the learning platform, you’ll log into online to access class information, coursework, assignments and more.

Zoom: Zoom is the web-based audio and video conferencing platform that operates as an online classroom, where you get to see and talk to your instructor and classmates. Classes that use Zoom are held in real time, on specific days, at specific times (synchronously).
