Note: This is now an ONLINE class.  The online time of our class is "Asynchronous"

Asynchronous courses take a more non-traditional approach. Students do not “attend” class at a set time, but rather, access pre-recorded lectures and digital curriculum materials and respond through email, and at a time of their own choosing.  Zoom video conferences during our online time will be only as needed.
