Asynchronous Instruction

In online settings, asynchronous instruction allows students to engage with course content and assignments on their own schedule from week to week, unlike the synchronous mode, in which students and instructors meet on a set schedule. In asynchronous classes, students may access class materials during different hours and from different locations rather than in one fixed setting such as a weekly meeting via Blackboard Collaborate or in a face-to-face classroom meeting.
