I have had many online courses since I have been attending Cowley College. In most instances, I prefer the online courses. I have found that they work better with my schedule and I also like that the students can basically choose when they have "class time". I feel that online courses also help students with their work ethic. Almost all of the online classes require discussion posts once a week along with replies to peers. This helps further students' education and learning by interacting and reading about other students opinions or just what they understood from the chapter/week. It can be extremely easy to procrastinate with online courses since students are not required to be at a specific place at a certain time. It can also be extremely easy to forget assignments if the student does not have a good system of keeping track of everything that they need to do. The only critique that I have about taking classes online is that it is harder to communicate with the instructors and get questions answered. Also, when it comes to classes that are specifically for the student's degree it is better, in my opinion, to take them in class because it is easier to understand and learn what the subject.
