Synchronous Participation & Asynchronous Participation

The online environment requires the active participation of students and the instructor to create robust interaction and dialogue. The Live Chats allow instructors to expand topics and concepts, enriching course readings and intellipath content, thereby helping students gain an understanding of real-world applications and creating a framework of context and relevance for course assignments. The Live Chats allow students to learn through engagement with faculty and peers while sharing ideas and experiences that relate to course content and assignments.

 

This assignment offers 2 options:

  1. Synchronous participation in the instructor’s weekly Live Chat sessions.This option requires and grades participation in the weekly Live Chat sessions offered by the faculty.  
    • Synchronous participation requires students to actively engage with the instructor and other students during the entire Live Chat sessions. This can be achieved by asking or answering questions, sharing examples illustrating the use of the concepts being discussed, participating in constructing equations or solving problems, or explaining the rationale underlying comments or perspectives shared during the discussion. 
    • Synchronous participation requires that the student is visible in the Live Chat as an Attendee and is actively posting comments during the entire Live Chat session. Participation will be assessed based on both the level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion. Students who log in but do not actively participate in the Live Chat session will not earn any points. Please note, the instructor may take attendance at random times during the Live Chat. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, synchronous participation will not be accepted after the end of each recorded Live Chat session.
  2. Asynchronous participation with the Live Chat archived sessions through the use of the Recorded Archive. This option requires and grades participation based on an embedded assignment within the archived recording.
    • Asynchronous participation requires students to listen to the entire archived recording of the corresponding Live Chat session, completing the embedded assignment mentioned by the instructor, and uploading the deliverable into the Submitted Assignments area. 
    • Asynchronous participation will be assessed based on the completeness, originality, and quality of the assignment deliverable. Because the intent of the Live Chat Archive content is to align with the unit content, no asynchronous participation assignment deliverables will be accepted after the end of each unit.
