What is Online Teaching?

Online teaching comes in many forms from synchronous video-conferenced lecture classes (i.e. remote teaching) to fully asynchronous courses containing learning modules.

Synchronous online 

Remote delivery with live lectures delivered over a video conferencing tool like Zoom. Students progress through the course at the pace determined by the instructor. Similar in structure to a face-to-face course but students attend remotely.

Asynchronous online

All content delivered fully online. Lectures, if any, are delivered via pre-recorded video watchable at any time by the student. Students progress through the course materials at their own pace. Course may contain some synchronous office hours or voluntary live session
