Here's what students are saying...

Online courses allow me to continue my education while working full time. I love that I can log on any time with no pressure at a certain time. Very convenient.
I liked that this course was offered online and that Blackboard was easy to navigate. The online tutors were great! They were quick and very professional.
This was a fun experience for me, especially since I have never taken an online course before. I am looking forward to taking another course online in the future. Thank you.
I really enjoyed the professor as well as the set up of the online course. As a high school student who is busy, this course was probably the best option for me, and it was very nice to have the option to do it online.
I liked being able to work at my own pace and do the course at home.
