Synchronous Live Sessions

Davidson Academy Online courses rely on synchronous live sessions where instructors and students meet online throughout the week. During live sessions, the instructor and students use real-time audio and video communication tools, including webcams, to foster deeper communications and understanding of the content. While live sessions, like our courses, are instructor-led (not self-paced) students are expected to contribute significantly during these times. We have found that students who have had experience with live, online communications that are academic in nature are more successful with our courses.
