I have been taking one or two classes through distance learning at a time, for a period of about three and a half years. I have really appreciated the convenience of being able to do school when I have free time. I work full time and needed more flexibility for class work. I have done homework late at night or early in the morning. My advice for others considering online classes is to set weekly goals for yourself. Do not wait until the last month to hurry and do the majority of the work. Take notes and actually read the book, the tests are very challenging and require that you know the material. Read each chapter twice. I did not finish the bachelors degree like I wanted to but I finished another (my second) associates degree. Without online classes, being without transportation, I wouldn’t have received either degree. My family has pushed me to keep going and motivated me to get this far. I am glad I have more achievements that will appeal to employers.
