Alternative delivery format
Most undergraduate courses and / or course components for the fall 2020 semester will be delivered in an alternative delivery format through CourseLink and other online platforms. What do these delivery formats mean?

Asynchronous (AD-A) learning happens without the need for real-time interaction. Your instructor will provide materials for reading, lectures for viewing, assignments and assessments with deadlines, and you can access the material and satisfy these requirements based on your own schedule; you do not need to log in at specific times.

One example of asynchronous learning at U of G is Distance Education (DE), which uses a variety of tools and resources to provide students with an enriched and flexible online learning experience.
 
Synchronous (AD-S) learning is the kind of learning that happens in real time. This means that you, your classmates, and your instructor interact through a specific online medium (e.g., Zoom), at a specific time (e.g., 9:30 to 10:20, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday).
