4 College Junior

Online Courses: The only issue I have had is recently and it has to do with registration. I have only one choice right now and I have already taken the class. I hope my school can find other options for me

Online Courses: While online courses do make it harder to interact with classmates when it comes to group projects or discussions, I find that I prefer them for the flexibility of being able to sign into class when I can (i.e. after the children are in bed) and eliminates the concern of shifting class times every term. I can arrange my work around my family's schedule without having to worry about getting to campus at a certain time or missing a lecture.

NECB's workload has always been very reasonable, especially considering the fact that the courses are eight weeks long as opposed to the typical fifteen weeks for an on-campus course. In my experience, my advisers, professors and the college staff have been far more understanding of the challenges faced by a student with a family to care for than those at the typical college. Also, they actually focus on the actual student rather than just treating them like a body in the seat. Overall, I far prefer my online courses to my experiences in a typical college environment.

Online Courses: I attended Northeastern University online and the classes were 6 weeks. NECB is 8 weeks and all the information could be composed into 6 weeks.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: well rounded but not always easy to manage with work

3 College Senior

Online Courses: The ciriculem is tough (good thing) but the grading varies wildly between instructors. The interface is pretty user friendly, but could use an update as some features are "hidden" in the folders instead of being in the main menu; the link to the eLibrary is a good example. Student interaction is typical for an online disscussion board.
