What is an Online Course?

This is an online course so we will not be meeting physically. Instead course hours will be satisfied using a variety of online synchronous and asynchronous methods.  For synchronous meeting time, we will meet online through Moodle as specified during the scheduled office hours above. For asynchronous meetings times, we will have weekly class discussions online through Moodle that you can complete at your own pace but adhering to the weekly due dates.
