Student opinions vary about online courses. Some find the flexibility and convenience wonderful, while others find the loose structure challenging because it makes them procrastinate. But the general feedback is that online courses offer students the chance to plan school around their own schedules. Dubbed "long distance learning" at City College, the online courses are designed so that students can still take classes while being away from campus.
Students take online classes for various reasons, but it should be kept in mind that online classes are not independent learning sessions. There are often clear expectations and timelines for assignments, even though students do not meet up physically in class every week. Some may feel that online courses are lacking in student-to-student interactions, but there are indeed interactions among students—the only difference being the interface.
