WEB: Asynchronous online course delivery that is self-paced with course materials (lectures, readings, forums, assessments, etc.) made available for students to access and engage with on their own schedule. There are still deadlines, and some instructors will release materials on a week-by-week basis rather than all at once, but students can usually decide how and when they will work through the course materials

Students can ask questions, take tests, or participate in discussions online while the instructor is available to assist them

For Fall/Winter 2020-2021:
As Lakehead University continues to respond to the changing circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, most of our courses for the Fall 2020 term will be delivered in some form of online delivery to accommodate the diverse range of Lakehead students. This includes synchronous and asynchronous online learning. Regardless of the mode of delivery, plans are being made to ensure students unable to join synchronously have options to continue their learning.
The Course Timetable for the Winter 2021 term will be updated with mode of delivery and other details as more information becomes available about the COVID-19 pandemic.
