Lessons in an online classroom will be given using Zoom, a video conferencing program. Lectures will be delivered through screen sharing, while group discussions and brainstorming will be delivered through “breakout” rooms (individual virtual rooms) to divide conversations into smaller groups. Both styles of learning effectively provide the same course content and learning objectives.
