Spring 2021 Coronavirus Updates: How to Look Up Class Meeting/Delivery Method Details

Instructions for seeing how specific sections of a course will meet or be conducted are available in our Search for Class Availability article.

Instructions for viewing the current class meeting/delivery method details for the sections you are already registered for are available in our View Your Class Schedule article.


A course section that is synchronous has specific times when everyone meets online (often via video meetings in Zoom) or in person at the same time. For example, there may be a Zoom class meeting every Monday and Wednesday at 11:00 a.m.

A course section that is asynchronous means that there aren't specific meeting times for that section. Instead, there are typically specific times when an assignment must be submitted, such as "essay due by Tuesday, November 24 at 5:00 p.m." Keep in mind that there may be exams in an asynchronous section that do have more specific timeframes.

If you are already registered, you can look in Moodle or contact your instructors directly for details about your specific classes.
