I love online courses! They are different from traditional classroom, most students failed due to the fact that they do not pay attention to when an assignments due date is/or the lack managing their time for the class and completing the work. For online courses one has to make sure to stay on top of it and check it every day/ at least print the syllabus off and check it every day. The workload varies I have taken multiple online courses and it all depends on how much work the professor wants to assign. Most of the time the professor are willing to help students if they email them with a question and or concern. Most of the online classes have a forum where they can talk to other students and ask for help though from my experience this never is used rather it is always empty so I'm assuming the just go straight to the professor and ask.

Apart from a lot of the professors at school, there is a good selection of teachers that are really helpful. You just have to be sure and get the right ones. When I first started I was having trouble with my english area, writing papers, grammar, not knowing how to properly write papers. One of the professors quickly realized I needed help and she focused on me a lot and helped me improve very quickly. I've forever grateful for her kindness and willingness to help a student in need!

Two of my three professors were excellent, but my History professor bumps the rating down to 3/5. My Biology professor was very enthusiastic about the course materials and subject in general, knowledgeable, prompt with grades, and very willing and available to help. The College Success Skills teacher as well obviously cares about his students and wants them to do well in school. My History professor, however, seemed almost non-existent. She was okay with returning grades quickly, but she never gave feedback on assignments. I asked for feedback twice and she only gave a one-sentence critique one of the times I asked. While I did not try to meet with her in person, one of my Biology classmates did. Apparently she was not available during her posted office hours. I also noticed several errors in the online quizzes where the incorrect answer was selected in the computer as correct. I am hoping that my next online class will go a little better as I am taking another one this coming semester.
