Future Plans for NWC

This fall, Northwest College will use a flexible hybrid model to deliver courses, consisting of both in-person and online learning methods.

Traditionally referred to as “synchronous” and “asynchronous” learning, the hybrid model NWC is implementing will allow for a safe learning experience, whether face-to-face or at a distance.
“Simply put, synchronous learning is ‘real-time’ learning, while asynchronous is more ‘on-your-own’ time,” NWC Dean of Student Learning Greg Thomas said. Synchronous learning involves faculty and students interacting with each other “live,” whether that is in-person or through a distance method like videoconferencing. On the other hand, asynchronous learning makes use of distributed materials and distance education technologies to provide students with a more flexible schedule.
