I have taken online classes before, but I did not do very well when I took the in high school. These online classes are a little easier to work with.

Online classes are totally convenient for me. With a family to care for and a work schedule this is a great way for me to be able to continue my education and not forfeit being a mother. The classes are easy to follow and usually need little or no further instruction.

Online courses at Alamance Community College differ greatly from the traditional “face-to-face” classroom experience. It was definitely not what I expected. The workload is twice the amount AND you are your own instructor. I took online courses because I needed to be more flexible with my time, not because I had more of it. I can see where online courses could be advantageous to some; however, I would not recommend a full-time course load of them, especially if you work (part or full time) and/or have a family and home to take care of.
As per professor/student relationship, they were the best! Course plan was more than challenging for me, but I learned a lot. I just could not always keep up per my personal/work/family responsibilities; however, they were always willing and able to work with me.
Peer-to-peer interaction was really good per college's website. The ability to interact with fellow students helped me on more than one occasion.
I guess what it comes down to is what environment works best for a particular student. For me, I learned that a traditional classroom experience is best for me for I want to focus on what I want to learn, and what I am taking the course for. I am a 'hands on' personality. What was most frustrating about online programming courses was that "I want to learn it and do it" … not "learn it and write about it, read what others have to say about it, comment on what they had to say, and then write some more". I am a doer, not a writer.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
