Here's what students are saying...
One of the best online classes that I have ever had.
I'm so glad the community college offers online courses. It makes going back to college with 3 kids and working full time so much easier! I love that I'm able to do the same work as on campus, but on my own time. Thank you!
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 was very nervous about taking a math class online and I didn't really know what to expect because I have only taken face to face classes. I must say that I felt very comfortable navigating what I needed to get to in order to accomplish the class. I had an over all good experience :)
I really liked that the instructor was always available and commented on graded work.
