How do online courses work in Messiah University's graduate programs?
Messiah University utilizes Canvas as a learning management system (LMS) to deliver online graduate courses. Courses and coursework can be delivered asynchronously (on your own schedule) and/or synchronously (live). The course's learning management system 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, real-time audio, video, shared whiteboard and desktop sharing.
