A lot of schools offer "Distance Learning" as part of the normal curriculum. I've found that in some ways the online courses are more difficult, the professor can't see the "WTF" look on your face. Most of the time I had to return to the campus to take the final exam. Some classes didn't require this...the workload is much greater too at some of the online classes.hsouth said:Lots of schools offer online courses as part of their regular cirriculum (I went to RIT and I know they offer tons of "distance learning" courses). And they're not all easy - Online Biochem kicked my butt!
