The Oriental Institute is pleased to offer courses that can be attended onsite at the Oriental Institute or online. Class participants can attend the entire class online or attend in person and follow the class online, if they so wish. Classes that are available online are available for live, meaning that you can participate virtually in the class through live chat. The classes are recorded, meaning that you can also watch later at your convenience. The course content (readings, syllabus, etc.) are available via CANVAS, which is the University of Chicago's online platform for classes. CANVAS is also where students can post questions, participate in any discussions, etc.
