Online classes can be scary at first, but once the teacher sends out the course syllabus, students get the hang of how the class will work. Most classes are graded through papers, which are submitted via email, but some only use a big final at the end of the semester to determine grades. Most of the students at SRJC agree that online classes are one of the easiest ways of passing a class.
Taking online classes requires a very minimal amount of computer knowledge. Teachers make themselves very accessible to students because they know that some are not as computer savvy as others, which really helps the students who need a step-by-step walk through of where to turn in assignments and how to communicate with other students on the blog.
