If you have taken an online course, what school did you take it from and what course? How was your experience?

I've taking Chem I, History before 1876 and Statistics. I will be taking American National Politics and Intro to Fiction online next semester. All of these were taken at a Community College.

I did not spend enough time on the material, I did ok (B). The professor mandated weekly 'chats' about the material, unfortunately I often found the material covered in the chats too remedial to be of assistance. Labs were one Saturday a month and covered three or four labs each Saturday.

History before 1876 had a weekly chats and several papers. I wrote more in that class then I did in either of my composition classes.

Statistics online sucks. :p Actually, it's not horrible, there are a few weird problems one encounters and the math 'study hall' on campus doesn't always have a stats person there and the professor is out the door by 4:45 every day. Ultimately the course-work can be done through self-study, especially if you are proficient at math.

3 online classes, 1 video...

My experience was AWFUL! :scared: I had to write 40 pg papers for my History video class... and his grading was horrible! I will never do that again. Online was ok but honestly, I like the person-to-person situation better.

At Illinois Central College, I took a literature class online and loved it... I guess WIU is just no good! :p

I think online classes, like any class depends on the teacher; do your homework, ask around to other students in the place you intend to sign up for.
I was unanimously recommended to a specific teacher, so I feel I am in good hands.
animal_lover, Where are you thinking to sign up?

I've signed up @ Texas Tech. I think I made a mistake taking calculus through distance learning. :eek: I'm not close to being finish with the course, b/c I was taking 2 classes on campus, trying to study for the PCAT and working 40hrs/wk. I only have until Feb to finish. They will charge me $100 for an extension! :mad:

U of Central Florida - All of the online courses I've taken were incredibly easy. I'm considering taking Pathogenic mechanisms online next semester but I don't need it to graduate. I guess it might help me in pharmacy school though? :confused:
Medical Terminology (3000 level course)
Intro to Pharmacology (3000 level course)
Medical Pharmacy I (4000 level)
Medical Pharmacy II (4000 level)

Other online classes include
HSC 3593C - "HIVDISEASE AHUMAN"
HSC 3640 - "HEALTH LAW"
HSC 4500 - "EPIDEMIOLOGY"
and the list goes on. :thumbup:
