4 College Freshman

Online Courses: It provides me with a lot of extra time and I get to do the work when I have the most time for it. It is harder at times to completely understand the instructions or grades since you can't directly ask the teacher unless you email them. It is definitely a different style, but I believe it works and you don't fully lose interaction with your classmates, because you are usually require to add to discussions.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The online classes include accounting, economics, English, history, math, and even some certain music classes. Bellevue has a wide offering of subjects online. In some classes, there might be a video of the instructor giving lectures, but mostly, you read from the website and textbook to do your assignments. You definitely do not need to be a computer genius to take online classes. There are actually free workshops held on campus that guide the new online users. Once the class starts, there are easy instructions on the website, and you can contact the instructor or school if there is still trouble.

Obviously, since it is online, you don’t have as strong of a teacher-student relationship as you would if you were physically going to classes, but that doesn’t mean there's absolutely no way to interact with professors. You can email, phone, or even fax them. You can even meet them face to face, but there needs to be an appointed time set for that. There is a chatting system where students can chat with each other; it depends on whether each student wants to reach out to other students, though. In some classes, tests are timed, and in others, tests aren’t. You turn in the assignments via email, and the instructor sends the graded response in return.

Facts & Statistics

Biggest Surprises
The amount of reading for certain classes
Required Tech Skills
You do not have to be too tech-savvy. Just knowing the basics of attaching files to your email and sending assignments to your instructor is key. You do not need to be a computer genius to take an online class.
Typical Online Lecture - Single Day
Most online classes are textbook oriented. This means the only contact you have with your instructor is through email or the phone. There isn't really a lecture-just necessary readings you have to complete to get ready for a writing assignment or test.
Typical Online Course - Start to Finish
Some classes have online lectures; in other classes, you just go by a book. The classes administer tests and assignments, and you send the completed assignments to your instructor by email. There is no final, or if there is, it is not a big test like with regular classes-just a project or something similar.
Online Testing & Grading
It depends on what class you take, but for tests, they're either timed or not timed. The great thing about online classes is that they always show all of your graded assignments, so you know what standing grade you have in that class instead of waiting until the end of it. Otherwise, it's just like a regular class.
Did You Know?
You can contact the school via email or phone if the system for your online classes isn't working.
