Here's what students are saying...
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.
The online interactive labs were a lot of fun and easily accessible.
I liked how we are able to communicate with our teacher online and work at our own pace while taking a college course.
Your distance learning program is very successful. Thank you for the continued education you have provided.
This is only my first online experience, but I would say that it was extremely pleasant, no need to change anything.
