Online process is great! Teachers were great. Online issue was their online student coordinator department. They never help or reply back to email, you have to search for things related to the school on your own since that department designed to help you won’t

Louisiana State University at Shreveport is a medium sized University in Shreveport. Louisiana. The college sits on acres of beautiful land which is adorned with trees and courtyards. There are also beautiful fountains on campus; and even though the architecture is slightly dated, the college is one of the best in the Northern part of the state. Unlike Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge, this college's main focus is academics. There are some sports, but academics are considered more important. The campus itself is very open and the wind blowing through the old oak trees is one of the most beautiful sights in the entire world. The teachers are kind, but they can also be very strict when it comes to learning and tests. While Shreveport is not very big and few know of it, it still has it's few special attractions, which include a boardwalk on the riverfront, several casinos, and several museums on the history of the local area.
Louisiana State University at Shreveport has several online courses to choose from. While I only have two online courses, others have several, and this depended on the schedule which you made for yourself. My online courses are not terrible, but they are not the best either. Learning online is a bit difficult using moodle (LSUS' online system), but in moodle you are able to see all your grades and the work you are doing. Online forums for discussions and graded works for submission dominate the Louisiana State University at Shreveport's online learning system for me. I Would prefer some tests or quizzes on moddle, but at the current, I have had none. Louisiana State University at Shreveport has a very average online course system, and I would recommend it to others if they were looking to take online courses
