Syn­chro­nous online learning, eClass

In synchronous online courses, students move through the course material at the same pace as their peers. These courses also provide learners with pre-scheduled online lectures that have the instructor and students interacting at the same time. All components of this type of course are accessible through eClass, the University of Alberta’s eLearning management tool. for­mat details

All of us at Extension are looking forward to welcoming you to our virtual classrooms this season with courses that are tailor-made for online delivery. Join us!
