Unlike traditional courses in which the students and instructor meet face-to-face once or several times a week, most of the learning activities and communication in an online course are asynchronous, meaning that class members participate and complete their assignments at different times throughout the day and week. This arrangement makes it possible for students to complete their class work at a time and place most convenient to them. Global Campus instructors utilize a variety of technologies for their office hours, including telephone, e-mail, and web-conferencing technologies. They are required to post the dates and times when they are available to check e-mail and respond to student inquiries.
