4 College Junior

Online Courses: As long as my laptop stays connected to the wifi I'm good lol

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I believe that online classes are the best because I am able to work on my assignments during the week while I am at work.

Online Courses: If it were my choice, I would take all my courses on campus. Unfortunately, there's been many times I've had to take online courses either due to day(s) and/or time(s) on campus courses were being held. For me personally, I would much rather have an instructor teach the material face-to-face and have the ability to ask questions. From my experience taking online courses, each week the instructor just tells the students what they're to do for that week and that's pretty make it.

Online Courses: We have Blackboard Learn, which basically allows students (even on-campus students) to submit work, see their grades, and interact with teachers and other students. The interaction is pretty good, as most teachers give a grade and tell you why. The features in online courses are cool, too, as they give multiple shortcuts to helpful links like sending e-mails, scheduling an appointment with your adviser, and seeing immediate announcements from your courses.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Online tools are used alot with class that I actually attend, therefore, they are easy to use.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Online courses are great. You get to take the class on your own time when it is convenient for you. However, at first, taking an online course on Blackboard can be a bit confusing.

Students should take the online orientation course before they begin their main classes over the Internet. Also, they should be sure they are independent workers with enough time to devote to the courses. To complete online classes, students need to be able to push themselves and stay on track.
