The online courses here at Santiago Canyon College do slightly differ from the in classroom experience. These differences being all interactions were over email and discussion threads and there were no in class or face to face meetings with professors and classmates. Registering for these classes is often no problem because the professors teaching them often hold two separate classes of the same course. This ensures there is enough space for most students considering to join. Although the courses are online, there is peer-to-peer interaction because the professors incorporate an online discussion thread where students are expected to post about a given topic and respond to each other's posts. The work load is definitely manageable if one plans their time accordingly. Contacting the professors is done through an emailing system which is not a problem considering each professor goes out of their way to make sure they respond within 24 hours.
Review Santiago Canyon College
I love Santiago Canyon College and I enjoyed going to SCC for my first college semester. My professors were really nice and enthusiastic to teach the class. I am usually a motivated student but I believe a good or great instructor can really help students enjoy the class and enjoy learning, and it was my professors' encouragement that motivated me to work even harder and succeed in each of their classes. Thank you guys.
Note: DO NOT procrastinate on registering for classes for each term. It is better to register as soon as classes become available.
Overall, I had a nice experience at SCC and will continue going there for the coming semesters.
In physics, the head teacher is extremely good at what he does. He has been teaching Physics for a long time, and is incredibly knowledgeable about the field and recent findings. He is also adept at helping students transfer to University, and is always there to help you, so long as you seek it from him. The new science building came with new equipment that allows students to perform some of the more basic experiments in physics easily and with a sense of what a University Lab is like. Math is closely linked to Physics and unfortunately, I found this department to be somewhat lacking. Some of the teachers are fantastic, while some are still new and learning effective teaching methods themselves, and some are just not very dedicated. The "MASH" (MAth Study Hall) is good for lower level students, but once you advance beyond calculus one, the tutors in the study hall are usually not knowledgeable enough to help you, unless you are lucky enough to be there when one of the higher math teachers are there.
