The method adopted by HUS is a combination of synchronous (happening collaboratively and at the same time with a group of online learners and a teacher) and asynchronous (happening at any time, not necessarily in a group, but with teacher feedback).
The learning management system that HUS has been using since 2017, has been Google Classroom and along with this, add Zoom and you have a synchronous virtual class is in session. HUS went online on the 20th of March following the announcement of the lockdown. The goal is not to try to re-create face-to-face (F2F) classrooms, which is impossible to do. Online and blended learning provides opportunities for learners to work more independently, expand their agency, and learn to use tools and strategies that they otherwise might not have.
It is easy to authenticate work remotely, especially formative assessments that are designed to get students to work together and use online resources. HUS also follow privacy norms and any social media activities are always moderated by a teacher.
