Here's what students are saying...
This course utilized student discussions where you had to post opinions and reply to other students on a discussion board. Our instructor replied to every post and provided excellent feedback on student comments as well as expanded on the subject of the discussion. I enjoyed that.
Online courses work very well for my busy life.
Although this course was online, it was very interactive; there were a lot of activities to do, which made me feel as if I was in a real classroom, face-to-face.
Wouldn't change anything, good distant learning class!
I was hesitant to take a Philosophy class online, but I am so glad that I did. Not only did I learn the material, I enjoyed the class.
