Synchronous Courses

Synchronous courses: Livestream your classes in real-time using video conferencing software

  • You can conduct synchronous classes in places like:
    • Your research room or residence (somewhere quiet with no distractions)
    • NTNU Campus Online Recording Studio(Located on the 10th floor of the General Building at NTNU’s Main Campus II, the studio provides relevant equipment and stable Internet connection. Please make sure to book a reservation ahead of time through Campus Online.)
  • To help synchronous classes go smoothly, we recommend enlisting the help of a TA, who can not only help resolve course-related issues but also perform roll call and recording.
  • To avoid clashing class times, departments can register usage and support time with Campus Online as soon as the curriculum is set.
