Student Evaluation of Classroom Course

Here's what students are saying...

Very well done to the professors of CTC. I look forward for my next class.
This is the first time in my life that I made an A in a math-related class. I was able to learn at my own pace and take time to really understand the material. Doing this course online gave me the opportunity to stop and understand any information that I struggled with, at my own pace. I was able to learn more in an online setting than I probably would in a classroom setting.
It was the right amount of coursework for the 8 week time period and assignments were to the point and truly tested our knowledge of the subject.
I thought that the assignments helped to provide an overall understanding of the material and were a great supplement for lecture. I did not feel like I was taking an online class because there was so much interaction with the instructor.
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.
