Online courses at Alamance Community College differ greatly from the traditional “face-to-face” classroom experience. It was definitely not what I expected. The workload is twice the amount AND you are your own instructor. I took online courses because I needed to be more flexible with my time, not because I had more of it. I can see where online courses could be advantageous to some; however, I would not recommend a full-time course load of them, especially if you work (part or full time) and/or have a family and home to take care of.
As per professor/student relationship, they were the best! Course plan was more than challenging for me, but I learned a lot. I just could not always keep up per my personal/work/family responsibilities; however, they were always willing and able to work with me.
Peer-to-peer interaction was really good per college's website. The ability to interact with fellow students helped me on more than one occasion.
I guess what it comes down to is what environment works best for a particular student. For me, I learned that a traditional classroom experience is best for me for I want to focus on what I want to learn, and what I am taking the course for. I am a 'hands on' personality. What was most frustrating about online programming courses was that "I want to learn it and do it" … not "learn it and write about it, read what others have to say about it, comment on what they had to say, and then write some more". I am a doer, not a writer.

ACC is a great school. The faculty and staff really care about the students. I have visited many of my instructors during their office hours to ask a question or work through a problem I had. They have always been more than willing to help me understand the material. I also love the diversity of students, especially the large range in ages of students in my classes. I think it makes class discussion much more interesting!

I submitted my FASFA, and I needed a few different papers to complete the financial aid process at this school. I sent in the missing papers, and then waited several months without hearing anything until I finally called the office about it. It took me a while to get a hold of someone, but it turned out they forgot to move my file over or someone didn't put all the info into the system or something? Anyway, after I called and they realized they had made a mistake, the office was EXTREMELY helpful, I had my financial aid numbers in two days, and it's covering my entire first year - books and everything. My only "complaint" would be that they need more people working in the office - those ladies are so hard to pin down and are always running around like crazy!
