I have never taken an online classes and truthfully think students that do are getting a disservice. Talking with the professors was an extremely important part of my education.
Seems to me on-line classes should be a lot cheaper than attending an institution. What are your thoughts or experiences?

I think the more gifted and advanced students would fare better than the average or struggling student. My second daughter was/is an absolute mess when it comes to math and while at SDSU her remedial Algebra class was online. What a waste of good money. I had her withdraw because she was failing it. She finally made it through 5 classes of Algebra before passing her required semester of college Algebra. She did best with a class in summer school (lots of individual attention from a professor) and massive amounts of online tutoring from big sister who had a second major in math.

I recently took an online programming class. There was a time of adjustment as when I asked questions, I needed to email or call the professor and it took some time for him to get back to me.

It consisted of him recording his class, and posting the video for online students to watch. Tests were administered by proctor.

Because I knew a lot about the subject matter already, it wasn't difficult me. I am not sure how it was for students who knew nothing about the subject.

I'd probably take another online class again. But you're correct about one thing, they should charge less for online classes.

Now, slightly off topic, the price I paid for a book I barely used is a whole other issue....I honestly think it's a scam. Do professors get a kickback for the books their students need to purchase?

I know off topic......hope I don't get moderated for it..... :face:

I think there is some kind of book kickback but not sure of the details. Maybe a paid meeting in Hawaii or an underage girl in Bangkok? Maybe both?
