The Al-Amal HIGH SCHOOL Online Academy: LEARNING MODEL
Synchronous classes are available in core classes – all core classes offer one semester of synchronous classes where you actually attend class via Zoom and listen to direct instruction from the teacher, get help on questions, meet your classmates, and learn about assignment expectations.
Asynchronous classes are also available part-time and full-time. This allows you to enroll in classes that have a bit more freedom to with your work schedule. Be aware – there are still deadlines!
Recorded classes – all of our “live” classes are recorded so if you can not make it to class the actual recording, complete with student questions, is available during the whole term.
CANVAS Learning Management System is where students receive and hand in all assignments and quizzes. At the start of the school year, there will be orientation sessions for all of our students that lays out the software needed and explains the procedures for submitting assignments.
Al-Amal HIGH SCHOOL Online Academy: ONLINE STUDENTS
Full Time Students:
Our full time students attend scheduled Zoom classes live for all core subjects. Class participation is encouraged but not required.
Students attend class usually about twice a week per course and are encouraged to complete the assigned work between live classes on their own schedule.
Live classes are recorded and can be viewed later.
Part Time Students:
Our Part-Time students take Asynchronous courses. This allows our students to watch the recorded classes whenever it works for their schedules and completing the assignments before they watch the next lecture.
