    So, live online means synchronous? So if the course starts at 8am I have to be online at 8am?

    That's what the syllabus says, "Welcome to Introductory Psychology. This is going to be a class unlike any you have ever taken. This Synchronous Massive Online Course will likely enroll more than 2,000 students. Unlike other Massive Open Online Courses, or MOOCs, this one will be live and will encourage student participation."
