Online Courses: It feels great to work online it has very similar things in common like passing homework, papers for reports, discussion topics, etc. Most teachers respond great to students online like they do in class.

Online Courses: Well it's kind of different online and traditional classroom because I can't sit and listen to my teacher when they are talking. If I had a question I would have to e-mail them and same with classmates. The lectures are typed which is good. Being an online has somewhat of a flexible schedule I feel I learn just as fine being in school and online it just depends how a teacher is into teaching.

Online Courses: Although I am online my classmates all interact on discussion boards and the professors like to get our thought processes really working by giving very tough questions to start us out.

Online Courses: Online courses work best for me because of their flexibility. I enjoy that I can do my work when I have the time because I have a very busy life. I also enjoy that you have all week to work on an assignment. My favorite thing about online course though are the discussion boards. They are a great way to get to know your fellow classmates and to really voice your opinion and be heard.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students can earn their associate, Bachelor's, or Master's degree entirely online at Post University. The school offers online degrees and professional certificates in accounting, biology, business administration, child studies, computer informational systems, criminal justice, legal studies, management for registered nurses, and sport management. Online students say  that the convenience and flexibility of the virtual classroom is what makes continuing education possible for many working professionals with family committments. Discipline is the key to success in this type of learning environment. One negative aspect of the online class format is the lack of face-to-face interaction with the instructor, which helps some students to better understand the materials.

Facts & Statistics

Typical Online Lecture - Single Day
A typical online class lecture is usually a condensed version of the chapter's key points and can include a PowerPoint presentation or other related links. The group interaction in the online class entails a discussion assignment that typically has a mid-week deadline. Actively participating in the discussion board is a requirement for all of the online classes offered at Post University. Each online class has one or two weekly discussion questions that students must post answers to in the online forum. In addition to posting an answer to each discussion question, students are typically required to respond to at least two other discussion posts. The discussion assignment equates to a portion of the final grade so it is very important to complete in its entirety.
Typical Online Course - Start to Finish
The online workload at Post University is very challenging as the curriculum is condensed to eight-week modules. A midterm exam or research project, as well as a final exam and a final research paper, are the usual requirements for each online class. Online students access their courses via Blackboard. Tech support is readily available to assist each student if the need arises.
