5 College Senior

Online Courses: I took one online course and it was the best online course I've ever taken. The instructor was responsive and helpful. She made everyone read and respond to each others posts which was easy to learn from others.

College Junior

Online Courses: I didn't take any online courses so it was not applicable to me.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I haven't had an online class yet but i know many people who have and they enjoy it because it keeps them relaxed with other classwork.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: Online courses at FIDM are awesome. Whats better than getting to have a class at home. It is for more independent people who have good time management skills. Highly recommend it. Teachers are friendly and helpful.

4 College Freshman

Online Courses: If you can just read by yourself instead of having a teacher lecture at you all day then it's good. However if you want the hands on experience you need to register for a class.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The eLearning program is great for students who balance school with complicated schedules. For example, some students who also have jobs like the flexibility of eLearning. The eLearning classes aren't easier, but the online structure makes it easier for the students to study around their work schedule.

A student doesn't have to be extremely tech-savvy, but he or she must have proper software training, as listed: familiarity with Adobe documents, saving Word documents, and watching video lectures, etc.
