Here's what students are saying...
I did not miss the face to face interaction of a classroom. Through the constant use of the Discussion Board, I was able to get the same interaction I would have gotten in a classroom environment, through a different medium.
This is my first online class with CTC and everyone in all departments made it so easy for me, from start to finish. I look forward to taking more classes with CTC.
Now all my courses will have non-proctored exams, which really saves me time and worry because I do not have to get childcare for my children or worry about finding a proctor. I have been very satisfied with my first semester at CTC.
I liked the simple and fast user interface on Blackboard. I also learned a lot from this course and it makes me feel confident it was well worth it.
I liked how we are able to communicate with our teacher online and work at our own pace while taking a college course.
