It's very convenient, and easy.

I much prefer the convenience of online classes.

Online courses, generally speaking, give the same workload as face-to-face courses. However, there has to be more self-discipline due to not being in class everyday.
The interaction between students is much less than in class. Usually the only interactions betweent students are because of mandatory online discussion boards for assignments.
The interaction between professor/student is limited, which works well for some subjects that are easy. I do NOT recommend taking a class online that is difficult for you. Face-to-face interaction with a professor is helpful when explaining difficult subjects, whereas online, there is less help available from the instructor--other than via email.

In deciding to take three online courses during my first Spring Quarter, I intended to make use of the beautiful weather that typically makes up our Spring months as sun in Washington is a rare treat. While instead I found myself with more work than a traditional lecture-based class, I recognized that I was able to more effectively absorb the information as well as develop my time management skills, which were previously sub-par. Working with other students during these classes, however, was primarily tedious. The online organization of the class functioned well, but the act of reading the work of my peers was challenging as the writing was, at times, grammatically and syntactically incorrect. This is more a personal problem than a problem of the class. The feedback from the professor of my two psychology classes was very satisfying; he, at the very least, acknowledged the assignment was turned in with a congratulatory "Nice Work". But he made clear that he did read them by sending feedback if the work did not quite meet his expectations. This became extremely helpful; I did not worry about whether the assignments had reached him, and I was able to improve my future work if necessary. While I caution against taking an online course in the hopes of less work, I recommend it for a higher level of critical thinking and in-depth comprehension.
