If you have taken an online class at DePaul in previous years you may already be familiar with this first modality. These classes do not meet at a specific time on specific days. An Online Async class is designed in D2L, where you find content, assignments, schedules, and structured opportunities for you to interact with your classmates, asynchronously.

For more information, please visit the guide to classes.

These classes take place at a specific time on a specific day, with the instructor and all the students meeting online using a synchronous meeting tool like Zoom. Before selecting this option, please carefully consider your ability to actively participate in video and audio with a reliable internet connection.

For more information, please visit the guide to classes.

These classes are a combination of asynchronous and synchronous online work. An online hybrid class is designed in D2L, where you find content, assignments, and schedules. In addition, the class meets synchronously on-line, on specified dates at the assigned time, using a synchronous meeting tool like Zoom. Though the class has assigned time(s) and day(s) of the week, it typically meets synchronously only some of the time. The class notes on the Enrollment Information tab of the Class Information screen may contain further details on the required/planned meetings.

For more information, please visit the guide to classes.

An Online: Async (Sync-Option) class is designed in D2L, where you find content, assignments, schedules, and structured opportunities for you to interact with your classmates, asynchronously. In addition, this class is paired with a class that takes place at a specific time on a specific day, on campus or on Zoom. Students in these classes may connect with the live classroom and instructor via Zoom, if and when they are available, but they are not required to do so. Typically, students in an Online:Sync-Option class will have access to the recordings of the paired live classroom.

For more information, please visit the guide to classes.

An Online: Sync-Classroom Link class takes place at a specific time on a specific day, linked to a class that takes place at the same time on campus. Students in these classes connect via Zoom with the live classroom and the instructor, so everyone can interact synchronously. Before selecting this option, please carefully consider your ability to actively participate in video and audio with a reliable internet connection.

The class notes on the Enrollment Information tab of the Class Information screen may contain further details on the required/planned meetings. Like 'On-Campus Plus Zoom,' this class consists of students who meet on campus in a Zoom enabled room at a specific time on a specific day, along with students who meet at the same time on Zoom. The difference is that most students will alternate between meeting on campus and meeting on Zoom, while some students will meet only on Zoom. This modality allows for increased enrollment in on-campus classes under social distancing conditions, while at the same time offering a fully online synchronous modality to students who may be unable or unwilling to come to campus.

For more information, please visit the guide to classes.

Meets on campus at a scheduled time.

Students and faculty are on Zoom at scheduled day/time.

  • Film 290: Topics in Digital Cinema: Blade Runner: Summer 2 

    Film 290: Topics in Digital Cinema: Robert Steel

    We have added the Topics class on Blade Runner for the Spring. It can sub for some major classes.
    In 1982, there was a distinct aesthetic shift with the release of Blade Runner. It didn't look or feel like any other film released at that time. Ahead of its time, it was a failure. Time caught up and it is now a classic, considered one of the great films of all time. In DC 270, we cover the films that influenced Blade Runner and the films that were influenced by Blade Runner. Blade Runner 2049 will also part of the course. All assignments are creative responses to the films we view. 
    Please let me know if you have any questions or need any assistance.
    Cheers,
