4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I like the online experiance. The blackboard is easy to navigate threw and it seems as tho the instructors are attentive. Even though it is online you can always reach someone if you have questions.

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: I enjoy doing online courses but in some sections I feel like I am teaching myself. On the other hand, the online courses at ivy Tech are very convenient and the teachers pushes us to do discussion boards to get acquainted with our fellow students.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Online classes meet my needs and I have found that it is best not to expect much help from professors as they tend to not answer emails, and are slow to grade, with a few exceptions. I've had two instructors that seemed to really enjoy their subject matter. I've mostly had professors who don't seem to care and do not respond or interact with students unless they have to. I've had several instructors who do not know how to communicate online at all.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I prefer to take traditional classes, but I have attend one hybrid class and plan to take a couple upcoming classes online. I do like the flexibility the online class offers, but I personally prefer the face-to-face interaction.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: One of the greatest experience I have with online course vs traditional is that people have to take turns talking vs just speaking out of hand, My education isn't being interrupted by the class-clown.

Online courses are great. You get to take the class on your own time when it is convenient for you. However, at first, taking an online course on Blackboard can be a bit confusing.

Students should take the online orientation course before they begin their main classes over the Internet. Also, they should be sure they are independent workers with enough time to devote to the courses. To complete online classes, students need to be able to push themselves and stay on track.
