I have had an online instructor in the past who got a little TOO creative with her assignments, and it left me opening up tab after tab, and going on a hunt for assignments and attachments to assignments. I dropped that class! I have had other teachers however who are very straightforward, and make the assignments easily accessible, and predictable. I think predictability is important with an online course, as a set schedule is the easiest way for me to foresee that I have arranged my time to be able to complete the assignments each week.

My current Community College provides an education that has exceeded my expectations. When people speak of Community Colleges, they aren't often taken as seriously as a University. After previously attending an HBCU, I am pleased to say that furthering my education at a Community College was the best decision I've made. The classes are half the size, which gives every student the opportunity to learn at their own pace. This also creates a better working environment for those who have a hard time learning in larger settings. Professors are able to build personal relationships with every student, which I believe is extremely important.

I took 2 online courses-both in the sciences. I wouldn't recommend
taking chemistry online because you really need the interaction that a chem lab partner offers. I also found that I didn't get the feedback and evaluations I needed to determine how well I was doing since there was no teacher to speak to. Homework was just marked -no teaching or discussions were held to explain my errors. It is important to note I didn't attend urham Technical Community College! I attended Durham College in another country.
