Online College Courses?

No thank you.

I gave it a shot, once. It wasn’t worth my time or the debt that followed after it.

I was enrolled in an online University that is highly advertised and seems pretty popular. I think I lasted through 1 1/2 classes before I gave up.

The first class was the mandatory study skill type of class they make you waste your money on. It went okay, but I didn’t really learn anything new.

The second class was one that dealt with management and the different styles and whatnot. The teacher was absolutely AWFUL. We had to write many essays. The 2nd essay was due long before the 1st one was ever graded. Therefore, our grades were lower because we didn’t know exactly what the teacher was looking for, his particular style, etc. It was a total pain in the ass. I couldn’t deal with it.

I don’t think I’ll ever try another one. Never say never, but it’s highly unlikely.

I don’t have a picture that goes with this  post, soooo here’s another pretty picture. It was taken at Helen Hunt Falls in Colorado Springs about 2 years ago, I think.

The days are getting colder. I hope this picture warms your heart, just a little.

That's too bad - I understand the whole getting sucked into something though, and then having to pay for it forever, uh - horrible feeling.
you certainly learned something anyways. (won't do that again!) :)

I have heard a lot with regards to certain online schools having bad teachers... and that is too bad that one professor ruined your experience.

:(

Great post-- loved the picture :)

Cheers, Jenn.
