Synchronous learning happens at specific times and learners participate in real-time. An in-person day of learning at CTC is an example of synchronous learning.
Asynchronous learning takes place at the location and pace of the learner’s choosing. Watching a pre-recorded video lesson and completing an online assignment from home is one example of asynchronous learning.
Students will have assignments and work to complete. Students must complete assignments and submit them on time to receive credit for attendance. Assignments must be submitted by midnight on the Sunday after the Asynchronous Day.
Example: All work assigned for the Asynchronous Day on Friday, September 1 must be completed and submitted by midnight on Sunday, September 3.
Instructors will be available, by email, during regular school hours on the Asynchronous Day to answer questions and provide assistance.
If students do not complete the assignments, they will be marked as an unexcused absence.
