When does my online class meet?

Most online courses are conducted asynchronously, which means students can enter the class web pages when convenient and complete assignments at their own pace (within limits). This flexibility is one of the great things about a web class. Most instructors require frequent participation however, and there may be synchronous meetings in chatrooms where you can communicate with your fellow students and instructor in "real time." If that is a problem, you can always communicate via discussions and/or email, depending on your instructor's requirements for the course.
