I hate online courses. I took an online math course and it was very hard because I had to teach myself.

I personally do not like online courses because students tend to forget easily that they have a class online and they have to take care of the work. I am for hybrid classes because they are the best of both worlds.

Online classes definitely take some getting used to but thy can be really helpful if you have a busy life outside of school. The key is to heck in often to see what is due, keep deadlines in your smartphone calendar and keep a good open line of communication with your professor.

I attempted one online course but dropped it within the first week because the online ebook was very confusing and the instructor was not any more helpful in explaining how to do the online homework. It was a Spanish course and the workload seemed overwhelming and there was not much communication with other online students.

I've taken a total of 5 online classes at ECC, and overall I was very impressed. The majority of the time instructions were very clear, and learning material was always well presented. The tests were also a fair assessment of ones understanding. Rarely though, I did come across occasions where things were either painfully vague, or just absolutely diluted in detail, which would make certain projects or assignments difficult and confusing, but if I'm being honest the occurrence of these confusing formats would probably be less than 5%. Most instructors take online classes just as seriously as they would on campus classes, and they make an effort to create a classroom environment in which you actually have weekly assignments that involve discussing the material with your fellow classmates via an online discussion board. Overall the online classes are quite convenient for those who have a busy work schedule, yet also substitute as a great off campus learning experience.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
