University of Central Florida Fall 2005 Freshman


ok this question is kinda silly to most of you guys i bet....but....i have never taken an online course and i was/am just curious what it is like. as i am considering takin may 2 online so i can get a job and work. is online easy? hard? mediocore? is it easy to figure out how to do an online class? is it better or worse than a lecture in class course? thanks for the advice and opinions!!!

i took college algebra and microeconomics online, and now i'm in summer school making them up. :P

the problem with online classes is that you don't have the hands-on you do in class, so to speak. personally, i'd never do an online class again. it was too confusing and the instructors weren't as clear especially with the math. there was a total of 4 teachers all together, so you can see how the different teaching styles might clash.

if you're a good student and know how to motivate yourself, then you should be fine. just remember to check the sites EVERYDAY, twice a day, just to be safe.
