5 College Junior

Online Courses: I prefer online courses over course held in the classroom. The peer-to-peer interaction is fully focused on the topic we are learning that week. The professors are also usually very involved through-out discussions.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I haven't taken many classroom courses, but one advantage is the face-to-face interactions with your professor and peers. Although the discussion boards are good for interacting with your professor and fellow classmates, it's not the same as a live environment. Sometimes this results in misunderstandings. The flexibility of online courses meets me needs better, though, which is why I chose such a program. The workload is reasonable and comparable to a classroom course. Registering for classes is very easy and I have access to an academic adviser if I need help in deciding what course to take.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: All I have taken is online classes. Very satisfying experience.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: The only issue I have had is recently and it has to do with registration. I have only one choice right now and I have already taken the class. I hope my school can find other options for me

Online Courses: While online courses do make it harder to interact with classmates when it comes to group projects or discussions, I find that I prefer them for the flexibility of being able to sign into class when I can (i.e. after the children are in bed) and eliminates the concern of shifting class times every term. I can arrange my work around my family's schedule without having to worry about getting to campus at a certain time or missing a lecture.

NECB's workload has always been very reasonable, especially considering the fact that the courses are eight weeks long as opposed to the typical fifteen weeks for an on-campus course. In my experience, my advisers, professors and the college staff have been far more understanding of the challenges faced by a student with a family to care for than those at the typical college. Also, they actually focus on the actual student rather than just treating them like a body in the seat. Overall, I far prefer my online courses to my experiences in a typical college environment.
