What are

Synchronous Sessions

Synchronous sessions are lectures and course lessons that occur live through video conferencing software. Specified times when students and instructors “meet” online to discuss course content, answer questions. This most closely mimics the in-classroom environment, because it creates a sense of speed and intimacy that helps build a classroom community.

Synchronous sessions refer to real-time educational activities that are often complemented with asynchronous learning activities, so students are able to complete assignments on their own schedule.
