How do online courses work in Messiah College’s
Our online graduate courses
are designed and delivered by Messiah College faculty through the Sakai
learning management system (LMS). Faculty members deliver courses both asynchronously
(on your own schedule) and synchronously (live). Sakai provides learning spaces for each course
that allows faculty and students to collaborate asynchronously through forums,
blogs, email, and wiki tools. It also provides the ability for faculty and
students to communicate synchronously through a chat tool.
addition to Sakai, some courses may use a synchronous component allowing for
real-time audio, video, shared whiteboard and desktop sharing.

for you to explore and to get a feel for Messiah’s online learning environment.
