Tech Tips for Online Classes

Things to Know for the Start of Spring Quarter:

Classes will be offered two ways: Synchronous and Asynchronous.

  • Synchronous means the class is offered virtually with a specific day and time to meet. This means you have to log in at a specific day and time to participate in the class.
  • Asynchronous classes are offered 100% online. There is no specific date or time to meet.

Schedule showing two synchronous classes and one synchronous classPlease log into MyCWU and check your schedule. What does it look like? You can see from the schedule on the right that the student is enrolled in two synchronous classes and one asynchronous class:

  • Tu 5:50 - 7:50 VIRTUAL -- for this class you must be online and participating every Tuesday from 5:40 - 7:50 pm
  • Mo  5:50 - 7:50 VIRTUAL -- for this class you must be online and participating every Monday from 5:40 - 7:50 pm
  • Online -- this class is asynchronous, so you do not have to log in at a particular day and time

** Please check your schedule and make sure you create reminders and "attend" the class if it meets at an exact day and time.
