Most of my professors used Panopto recordings for class, Zoom for live meetings, and Canvas for assignments and communication. Professors were available (given the sudden transition to online) most of the time, but there is something missing about learning online. It lacks the zest of in class discussions, face-to-face communication, but that's more of a critique of online courses. UAH did a pretty good job at the transition, most professors included, and aiding students in these times with a pass/fail option, too.
Honors represent! Between amazing professors, scholarships, housing, and opportunities, this was 100% the right choice for me. I've had tons of research and leadership opportunities, and I've had some great times -- Bob Ross Crew, Pinecone Club, multiple weekly ACE events!
