Online Courses: The work load is the best and also professor/ student relations are amazing. I interact with every instructor I have and they are willing to help.

Online Courses: Well online classes differ from traditional classes because for one we aren't in a physical classroom. Also we can listen to the chats at anytime. If we are struggling with a concept or chapter in the course we can go to a virtual learning lab to help us understand it better. Workload is a little bit more strenuous than a traditional because we're online and only meeting once or twice a week whereas traditional may meet everyday, so we have more individual projects and discussion boards, in essence more writing project than the traditional would have.

Online Courses: I never thought online learning could be as knowledgeable versus being in an actual classroom. This is a great learning experience.

Colorado Technical University Online offers a variety of online courses, from accounting to healthcare to IT technical. Each course is structured to your schedule and your major or concentration. Students have an online instructional class at least twice a week; this class can be attended on the scheduled time frame or can be tailored to your schedule by visiting the prerecorded class.

Technology is a major part of completing online school courses, from navigating the CTU site to using the Internet to gain the research for completing the assignment. You do not need to be an expert user of technology, but you must be willing to learn and experiment with the required sites and options offered at CTU. Most relationships within CTU are just like any relationship within daily life; some personalities will clash and some will connect, but for the most part, everyone you come in contact with at CTU will be personable and friendly. There are no so-called "tests." Grading is based on completing your assignments well and on time, and having the basic knowledge of the subject at hand.
