When taking an online class, you just have to prepare yourself that you're kind of on your own. There is little to no interaction between classmates, which can make the course more difficult than a traditional classroom experience. The teacher is usually available and willing to answer questions, but it's not the same learning environment as a traditional classroom experience when you can be taught in a classroom and shown examples on a white board, rather than read the book by yourself.
The workload is very fast-paced and takes about a week to get used to. It is very easy to register for online classes, but space can fill up quickly. The professor/student relationship for online courses is a bit more standoffish than in a traditional classroom setting. But the professors tend to answer emails in a timely manner. Online courses at Miramar are convenient and perfect for students with a busy schedule who need a flexible class.
