SUM delivers classes through our online synchronous platform but is now adding a new delivery system called SUM Anytime-Anywhere (SUM-AA).
How do synchronous courses work?
Synchronous courses are delivered through Zoom video conferencing. Classes are held at a scheduled time each week, normally for two hours and 45 minutes. Students are online with their professor during this time for lecture, class discussion, and guidance on assignments. This is a great system for those who can schedule their time to allow for regular class sessions each week. But if your schedule does not allow for that, you might opt for the Anytime-Anywhere delivery system.
How does SUM-AA work?
Anytime-Anywhere course sections are delivered with the same quality as synchronous courses but allow for more flexibility with each student’s schedule. SUM-AA gives students two hours of video content each week plus 30 minutes with their instructor online in groups of five students at a time. The 30-minute weekly sessions are for coaching and mentoring and students can choose from a few different times offered by the instructor.
