The cost of online classes is a bit higher, however a trade off for being in the privacy of my own home and more flexibility of when I chose to log in and do the work. Registration was a breeze. I thought the online format was great. It require dedicated participation. The more you log on and discuss, the more you feel like part of a real class. You are responsible for meeting the deadlines for work, so you are accountable for structuring your time. I always felt liKe I received attention from my instructor, through feedback in discussions or answering emails.
