Tools for Online Teaching
The UC Berkeley Online MPH learning experience is designed with both synchronous events and asynchronous instruction. It also includes an annual on-campus learning during the summer. Instructors and Teachers Assistants (TAs) hold weekly scheduled office hours, and are accessible anytime through your Student hub channels.
Asynchronous Class Time
You can log in at your convenience anytime and listen to lectures, view video clips, get reading assignments, post questions, take quizzes, participate in discussion sessions, and submit homework. Course material, as well as technical support, is available 24/7.
Synchronous Class Time
Students and instructors interact live weekly whether during small working groups of 4 to 5 students or in a larger group setting. All the live discussion sessions are archived and can be reviewed throughout the duration of the course.
“My horizons were profoundly expanded by my fellow students and professors. I never felt alone.”
– Tim Ho, M.D., M.P.H., Class of 2014
