Why Asynchronous Instruction? Students who were able to participate in synchronous activities while in residence may not be able to now—due to limited internet access or bandwidth, illness, family members’ illness, job loss and resulting food or housing insecurity, and other challenges. Therefore, it’s crucial to ensure that students can access all course materials. Many, perhaps most, students will be ill or otherwise unable to participate in coursework for a period of time this semester. Recording lectures or discussions and making them available after the fact will be essential to supporting make-up work for multiple students.
