Online Courses at University of Phoenix - Online: The experience with my professors have been ok

4 College Junior

Online Courses at University of Phoenix - Phoenix: I have nothing to compare with but I did a lot of research prior to choosing Univ of Phoenix.

The only option I had to pursue an education was on-line. I live in rural Colorado and it is very difficult to make ends meet much less go to school. Pursuing an on-line schedule has worked well for me. I've been able to come close to completing my AA. It has not been an easy road...but the Univ of Phoenix has provided an excellent o-line program.

There are times where there is very little peer participation which makes it difficult o complete I always try hard to encourage others. The Instructors have always responded in a timely manner.

3 College Senior

Online Courses at University of Phoenix - Memphis: Online courses are much different from classroom experience. With online there is not any lectures and it consumes more time with reading and responding to other classmates. I think if you are a person with a lot to say on everything it works, but for those no so talkative it can prove to be a bit much.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses at University of Phoenix - Online: They launched a new classroom layout recently, and though it took some time to get use to, it is very easy to navigate. I do prefer the old classroom, but this one is a little more convenient when it comes to turning in assignments. It is easy to see what you have posted, or if you want to respond to a specific classmate, you can find that easily as well. It is a lot different than being in an actual classroom, but since I work Monday through Friday 8 to 5, this is the easiest route for me.

4 College Senior

Online Courses at University of Phoenix - Online: For the most part, the classes have been great and I learned a lot. Occasionally, the professors could be atrocious and made it excruciating to get through the class, but that can and does unfortunately happen with any college. The learning teams are also atrocious, but despite them, I am still able to take a lot away from the classes themselves.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Aida Garcia
View all previous student authors

The e-campus arrangement is a student's choice and requires that the student focus on time management to complete the requirements for classes. Students develop a calendar of events for submitting assignments and research to draft writings. The classes are open 24/7, unlike the traditional classroom where class is only for a couple of hours. Because access to classes is 24/7, study time is a student's choice, as well. The only classes that are on a set schedule are the lab dates, but they are essentially open to the student on a 24-hour basis.

The e-campus arrangement is good for any type of student, from those that are employed to those that are unemployed. All students have the option of going to e-campus 24/7. Simply put, it is up to the student to access the class or e-campus on his or her schedule. For students who are employed, the e-campus arrangement is an invaluable asset, where students can work any shift and still be able to attend e-campus. It is also good for people returning to the workforce after an illness or absence due to disability or leave of absence. Another great aspect of an online learning experience is that you get to meet any type of student—students from all over the world studying and participating in discussions. The interaction with peers is helpful because it allows different perspectives into the classroom, with each individual heard in the student forum.
