Before attending Porterville College, I was a little apprehensive about going to a community college; I wanted to experience living away from home and walking around a huge campus. When I arrived in my class, however, I was pleasantly surprised! The professors actually took the time to learn everyone's names and get to know each student individually. They formed relationships with their students and were very accommodating and understanding. Now, I never want to leave.

It is very eady to naviagate. I can easily reach my teachers and classmates. Using the calendar helps me keep my assignments in on time and receive a high grade. It also checks off the assignments as I submit them. This is very helpful and useful. The materials are related to the coursed and the work is evenly distributed through each course. The books and assignments are easy to read, learn and self navigate. When I have questions or concerns I can easily reach my teacher or classmates for help. The discussions are very helpful for me to really relate to my classmates since it is all on line. Being able to interact with my peers even though technology is very neat. Also it helps my networking with my peers. Being able to relate and communicate through discussions is very important since we are not in a class room. It also helps me learn more to be more open minded about what other's learn and how they are comprending the material. I like the teachers and the course and material.
Some good and some bad experiences. Some teachers took forever grading and didn't offer much feedback and others were very good at responding in a timely manner, grading quickly, and helping students who were struggling. It just depends on the teacher and the coarse. I will say that our teachers who had to move to online courses during quarantine did a good job considering their lack of experience with online courses and the short amount of time they were given to prepare.
