I myself am not an online learner, but I am capable of doing an online course if it's under the right teacher. I wouldn't say there is any unique features other than being able to submit from google docs. The one online class I have taken so far I hated. We usually had about 6-7 assignments due each week, which was pretty hefty along with my 5 other classes. There was so much work to do that I was late on most assignments, because I didn't understand when it was due. It was pretty easy registration, just like any other class. I do not like that some courses are only offered on certain campuses during certain semesters. If they don't fit into your schedule, or you can't drive there you have to take your class online. The one online course I took I had a bad relationship with my teacher, which caused me to almost fail. Interaction with peers was limited to email and texting.
