Here's what students are saying...
This was so far THE BEST online CTC class I have taken. It was very interesting to see what my classmates thought. I obtained useful information and skills I can use in the future.
The online textbook was pretty nice, and my professor was very informative on what I needed to improve.
It was an amazing class. A big plus in that the text was available online for free. I will save the link to the text so that I can reference it in the future.
This was my first online course and I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed it! MindTap was a lot of fun and very useful to this learning experience.
This is only my first online experience, but I would say that it was extremely pleasant, no need to change anything.
