4 College Senior

Online Courses: I've never had online classes, but I've had to submit assignments in Black board which is a site where you can check your grade, the assignments you have completed, etc. I've only interacted with students and professors in real life.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I haven't had much experience with online courses so I can not comment on it as of now.

1 College Junior

Online Courses: I believe that taking an online course is the worst possible way to learn. I took one online class and regretted it because i feel that i learned nothing. Its not the same as being in the classroom hearing the other students thinking and the teacher helping you face to face.

2 College Senior

Online Courses: A wider variety would be much helpful

3 College Senior

Online Courses: So far I've only taken one online course which is for english. On the first day i was walked through a tutorial to help me understand the meaning of and how to use online courses but i think the professor's explanation would have been more helpful.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

CUNY Queensborough offers online courses through the FNET and PNET. FNET courses are given fully online, with no face-to-face interaction; PNET courses are partially online and partially on campus. Communication is important for online courses, and students must start emailing their professor right after class registration. Courses also utilize Blackboard, an online hub where students and teachers can connect.

Unfortunately, Queensborough offers a limited number of online courses, so not all students can take advantage of the FNET and PNET registries. Most students must attend traditional classes in order to fulfill their course requirements. However, for students whose classes are available online, the flexible schedule of non-traditional courses is a benefit.

Facts & Statistics

Required Tech Skills
Depending on the class, students should be comfortable performing basic online tasks, such as sending e-mails (with attachments), posting messages to discussion boards, using chat rooms, and searching the Web. Students should also be comfortable using basic functions in Microsoft Office programs like Word, Excel, Access, and PowerPoint.

Check out this self-test to see if you're well-suited for an online course:
Typical Online Course - Start to Finish
Courses typically begin with a review of the syllabus. With fully online courses, professors may require a pre-class orientation on campus to discuss general expectations and class projects, exams, and grading. Depending on the course, students can expect a cycle of readings, discussions, papers/projects, and exams.
Online Testing & Grading
For fully online courses, tests are generally administered online through CUNY's Blackboard portal. Professors post scores and grades here also. For hybrid courses, tests may be administered on campus.
