How are online programs and courses offered?

Our online courses are designed by our experienced faculty and program teams with you in mind. They understand the need for flexibility and support while factoring in the unique learning outcomes and experiential activities you’ve come to expect from Fanshawe College. We offer our online education in two different formats - asynchronous and synchronous. 

  • Asynchronous simply means there are no scheduled classes, but you will receive structured guidance and support from your professor throughout your course.
  • Synchronous means you will have scheduled hours with your classmates and professor, or a form of blended delivery where some of the course may be online and some in a face-to-face learning environment.
