my online courses are relatively challenging facing the fact I'm close to doing 20 units in one semester

As with most college experiences, the online courses greatly depend on the teacher. I've had classes were the workload was minimal and I've had classes where the workload seemed worse than being in a regular classroom environment. Most of the teachers try to motivate peer-to-peer interaction by requiring that students respond to each other's posts. Some take it too far, however, and require less possible tactics, such as responding to several posts, each 24 hours apart (which detracts from the accessibility of an online course). The professor/student relationship is also quite inconsistent. Unfortunately, it seems as though a disproportionate amount of students have a negative experience when they genuinely need extra help from their professor. Examples include a lack of explanation on grades/expectations, not being understanding when technological issues arise (being highly inflexible), or simply not responding to any messages. All in all, I appreciate being able to take online courses to fit my schedule, but I'm aware that they are a mixed bag and may end up working harder than if I were to take a in class course.

I have never taken an online class but from what I herd from other students it sounds a little difficult becuse you dont get to interact with the teacher as much. When you have a question you have to email and some teachers are good at responding and some take a while (from what i have herd). If i had a choice to take it i dont think i would because personally I like to interact with my teachers and have questions answered face to face.

It always depends on the teacher but I love the online classes at Foothill. I have taken online classes from other schools and they are not as easy to use. They layout is prettier than other schools. Most teachers love to answer questions or other students will. Lectures, Discussions and Assignments are all separately labeled with due dates posted.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
