3 College Senior

Online Courses: They aren't the worst, but as with any online course you certainly can feel the disconnect for sociability. Teachers also don't feel as though the care very much about what happens to students who take their online courses.

Online Courses: I haven't really took any online courses, also I rather be in the classroom than online because that's where I shine more, and also learn more.

Online Courses: First online class I ever took in my life started with English comp 1 and I absolutely loved it! I was scared in the beginning because I didn't want to fail but it wasn't as hard as I imagined it would be and it has give me more confidence in the future to take other online courses.

Online Courses: Registering for online classes is quite simple and there is always a slot open for me. It is different from a traditional classroom experience because there is no roll call of course but it gives more freedom to in which I don't have to worry about being late or setting my alarm. But, it also, keeps me on my toes because I have to constantly remind myself that I have an online course along with in class courses. Assignments are straightforward and due dates are also.

Online Courses: I haven't really taken an online class at Valencia,but teachers give us online homework. It really helps a lot.

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.
