Synchronous and Asynchronous Courses
Due to COVID-19, Lehman College is offering Fully-Online classes for many Fall 2020 classes. There are two different ways for Fully-Online offerings which are:
Synchronous courses resemble traditional on-campus college classes in that students must be (virtually) present at the same time. Though they are conducted over the Internet, synchronous courses unfold in real-time. Students must commit to scheduled class times and sign onto their virtual learning platform on schedule. During these courses, students will watch video lessons and slideshow presentations and even have virtual class discussions.
Asynchronous online courses, on the other hand, do not require you to log in to your virtual classroom at a specified time. Students do not have to stick to a strict schedule to engage in live classes or discussions.
