Online courses are great for those that want to get a degree, but the traditional classroom setting doesn't work for the responsibilities and flexible schedule needed to be able to attend class. Some of the students are active military; some are spouses of active military. This requires a lot of juggling of time, and in some cases, being able to continue classes while deployed. I am married to a retired, 100% disabled veteran, so I need flexible hours to be able to care for him, get him to his appointments, etc. It is constant planning and scheduling of my time to tend all that is required of me.
