Student Evaluation of Classroom Course

Here's what students are saying...

This was my first course online and it was a very pleasant experience.
I'm so glad the community college offers online courses. It makes going back to college with 3 kids and working full time so much easier! I love that I'm able to do the same work as on campus, but on my own time. Thank you!
This was my first distance education course in 15 years. I really enjoyed the way the course was put together and made available online.
Although this course was online, it was very interactive; there were a lot of activities to do, which made me feel as if I was in a real classroom, face-to-face.
I really enjoyed the professor as well as the set up of the online course. As a high school student who is busy, this course was probably the best option for me, and it was very nice to have the option to do it online.
