The online course I took (Spanish) was not a great experiance. The study load was high (assignments, quizzes, reading, listening) but the overall testing was poor. To be fair, learning Spanish without speaking any of it to anyone in the class is a pretty poor model for language acquisition... I learned a bit about grammar but the course was obviously designed by a language major and trying to figure out what a "past participle" or "conjugation" is/does in Spanish is niegh impossible because I didn't know what they did in English! I ended up using the Doulingo app to get through the class (which used NO fancy grammar words).

Facilities are about average, desks and chairs are fine, school desktop computers are unbelievably slow, wifi is pretty slow too unfortunately. I do like that the projectors are aimed at white boards making slide interactions much more valuable.

The general ed courses are weak, the instructors seem to parrot info from the book/slides and don't display a deep knowledge of the course material, however the job placement courses are solid for young students heading out into the workforce as is the course on goals and stress mitigation.

Workload is average for a student with a full time job and probably low for a student without a job.

They seem to provide decent access to job fairs and opportunities but I do not actually know any students that have gotten jobs or internships from them.

School is aimed at moving lower income students through the system and into jobs. They seem especially well focused on nursing students. The school is technology focused and issues Kindle tablets for all students to download textbooks instead of using physical ones. Conversely, the wifi is slow and the desktop computers are terribly slow...

The general ed teachers are hit or miss, all seem interested in their students but most seem to just read the powerpoints rather than have a deep knowledge of the subject.
