Online Learning at SFCC: Synchronous versus Asynchronous


Classes are currently offered online in response to COVID-19.

Summer and Fall classes are listed in the pull-down menu above. Online classes are designated with a “D” in the section. For example, “English 1120 D1.”

Online classes are offered in two formats:

Synchronous classes are online classes that require students and instructors to be online at the same time.  Synchronous classes are live classes that are streamed in real-time to students over the web. Synchronous class times are listed in the pull-down schedule above.

Asynchronous classes allow students to complete their work on their own time. Students are given a time frame during which they need to complete their assignments and meet the requirements of the class.
