There are classmates who respond with supported opinions and I enjoy working with them. I find it difficult to work with students who are not willing to put in effort to find peer reviewed information to back their opinions. But the instructors certainly reward those who do put in the extra effort. I hope couselors are informing new students of the amount of work that goes into online education. It is NOT easier, simply mobile and convenient for time scheduling. More participation is actually required since we do not sit in the classroom and participate. Overall, a very decent school.
By being an online student I have the privelige of learning with a diversified group of individuals, all working towards the similar goal of a better way and a better life.
