The synchronous time is for students to interact with one another and the instructor. The sessions are not recorded, and students will not be able to make up a missed class by going to another time slot. Make up work, if needed, is completed outside of class time. If, for instance, a student is sick and misses a class the instructor will give them instructions for how they can catch up. Missing class should be an exception to the general rule. Students missing multiple classes will see that reflected in their evaluations.
