Online Courses: I haven't take any online courses

3 College Senior

Online Courses: The online courses I've taken haven't been the best. I feel as though the professors don't put as much time into the online material as they do for their regular class settings.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I haven't taken any yet

5 College Senior

Online Courses: My online class was the best class ever at first i thought a was going to be hard, but love it the teacher make it so easy to understand. I past the class with. B+ a was accounting tht was not easy but I did it..

2 College Sophomore

Online Courses: It is not the classes that are bad it is the program they use. It is down for maintenance several times a week. It takes multiple login attempts to get into the system due to server error. The teachers refuse to use that as an excuse so be prepared to do your work ahead of time because if you wait to long the servers will be down and you will be screwed. The site went down for a few days and most of the teachers refused to accept late work.

Online courses are fairly easy. Basic computer and time management skills are all you need to succeed. Most classes begin with an online orientation and an introduction discussion, followed by a variety of assignments and quizzes/exams. Online classes are not project free; some professors require you to finish elaborate projects with in-depth research.

Professors are sometimes hard to reach when taking online courses. However, if you have a problem, you can always head to your professor's office hours and talk to them in person. One of the major problems with online classes is that sometime the Web site, which is called WebCT, is down. Most professors will not allow you to submit work late, even when the computer server is down. Word of advice: do your homework or class work at least one day in advance. Also, be aware that some professors do not post grades until right before the final exam. Be sure to study hard and stay on course, or else by the time you find out your grades are low, there won't be time to raise them.
