Online With Real-Time Meetings Courses

Online with real-time meetings courses use video conferencing technologies, such as Zoom, to hold with regularly scheduled online class meetings that allow students and instructors to engage in real-time, face-to-face interaction.

These courses typically have a cohort of students starting and ending the course together with set assignment deadlines. Students and instructors utilize the learning management system Canvas to access course materials, such as reading and assignments, management communications and track progress.
