        The opportunity to become familiar with WebCt and send video work to teacher and classmates via attachments.

        It allowed me to spend more time with my two children and still get some of my core requirements completed.

        I can work at my own speed from home and stop when my kids need me. I don't have to spend a lot of time and gas away from my family.

        Excellent communication between instructor/student and student/student.Convenient.Save gas!

        NOTHING

        I love that we can participate in discussions without feeling nervous about who is looking at us or judging us while we state our opinion. I love that we can work in our own time, and always get an answer from our professors.

        It is very helpful for people like me who work full-time jobs.

        That I can work from the comfort of my home.

        I can work full time, travel for my job, manage my family life, and do my schools work whenever it is convenient for me, regardless of where I am.

        Well my commute is over 50 miles maybe 60 miles so the advantage of not having to drive and because of the current gas prices, I would say not having to make that commute

        Living far away allows me to complete my masters through online courses.

This was a very positive learning experience.

        I live 45-50 miles away from Carrollton and I work about 75 miles away from Carrollton, so the time I saved in traveling and the money from gas was wonderful.

        Narrated power points

        I like the ease of working at the hours that fit my schedule.

        I love taking online courses because I can work on my own time and at the hours that are better for me.

        online aspect

        Convenience

        I thought that the projects were fun that we were asked to submit. They were very relevant to our future jobs

        Having classes online is extremely convenient for me.I live over 3 hours away from WestGA, so it is almost impossible for me to attend classes on a regular basis on campus.

        I loved the class!I loved the fact that we had assignments to do and then we submitted them to him.We did not have to chat or discuss with the other members of the class.His assignments were challenging, and I learned so much through the research I did for class.

        I enjoy the discussion boards, the ability to work on projects and submit them when it fits my schedule, and the opportunity to participate in chats with other classmates.

        I liked the fact that we had to do some of our assignments with a group.I had not done that in my other online class last fall and I found it very helpful.Generally, I enjoy the social aspects of a class and haven't gotten that much before this semester through my group.†† Another positive was that we got very timely feedback on our projects in this class and that is very helpful.

        Personally I felt that is was not as effective as face to face, and with the problems between work being submitted and going through it would have been easier to turn in a hard copy or have the discussions in person.

        I could contribute to discussions on my own time.

        I liked the organization of the course material within WebCT, and how it is somewhat universal for all courses.I also liked the flexibility of being able to access the information and material at anytime from my computer.

        I liked the flexibility of being able to complete assignments at my own pace and on my own time.I also feel that I could be more expressive due to the relative anonymity of the course.

        Allowed for me to complete work on my time schedule and provided freedom from regular class restraints

        I liked having the flexibility of getting work done on my time schedule. Also having email access with my instructors was great.

        Very convenient and allows for flexibility in managing class activities.

        it was relevant and helped me to avoid spending excessive cash on fuel.I also enjoyed not having to get a babysitter to come to school

        Convenience

        No much the professor was totally disengaged.

        It was up most of the time. If not there were explanations and it was quickly fixed. Allowed me to work when I found the time. It's like being on the job because you have to get field experience. I really liked the instructors. Very knowledgeable and understanding.

        The flexibility is very helpful.

        The flexibility factor is very important to me.

        It fits in with my schedule. Allows me to do school work on weekends and evenings when I'm not at work.

        easy to follow

        Flexibility

        I loved being able to learn about this topic from the convenience from home. It is hard to work all day and then have to rush to class. When you get home you are exhausted. Online learning is fun and just as educational as sitting in a classroom. WebCT is great and I think all professors should be encouraged to use the system. This summer I'm taking two courses in Carrollton and I'm hoping, fingers crossed, that part of these class hours can and will be completed online. Especially since I have a class meeting all day on Saturday from 8:00 till 5:00. In my opinion, that is just overkill for any reasonable person to be made to stay in a campus class for that length of period.

        my on time

        The flexibility to complete assignments on my own time and at my own pace

        easy

        I like that I could complete assignments within a time frame set by the instructor but that I didn't have to drive to Carrollton once a week.

        Not having to spend 2 hours driving when what we do in class can be done using WebCT.

        The most important item for me was the convenience of answering and responding to fellow students.Another highly valuable item was the availability of my professor

        loved not having to drive, and to be able to prepare and contribute to discussions

        Convenience and savings on gas.

        Flexibility to do class discussion from my home or office

        I like the fact that I get to work at my own pace

        I learned how to do research and write a research paper

        I liked having the freedom to complete my work.

        I loved the convenience of not having to drive to Carrollton after work (an hour and a half round trip for me). I did my homework in my pj's after my kids were asleep!! A wonderful thing!!

        Convenience of when I can work. Less stressful environment. Still has easy access to instructor. I wish all classes were online.

        Doing the work on my on schedule

        I really liked not having to come to class weekly when the tasks were of an independent nature and require an individual student response. I also liked having the opportunity to be in an asynchronous work environment. I appreciate not having to sit in front of the computer at a set time of the day, unlike having to report to a class at a particular time.I also had an opportunity to read the work of other students and get a different perspective versus sitting in a class and not being able to share because to focus or only learning comes from the professor.

        I could work on the projects at 1am if I needed to.

        Convenience.I like being able to keep up with the goings on of class on my own time.

        Convenience!!If I had to take classes in a traditional way, I would be unable to further my education.It simply would not fit into my hectic family/personal life.

        It was more flexible and having a full time job and family this was much easier to accomplish.Graduate courses should look to be on-line.

        It helped me learn a great deal more about computers.It was convenient working around my schedule since I'm not a traditional student.

        I liked the face to face meetings.

        I like the convenience and easy of use.

        I like the flexibility of time. I can login and complete online class assignments at anytime.

        In pursuing a master's degree, I'm finding it difficult enough just to go back to school with my family & job commitments. If I had to drive several miles to a campus and sit in a classroom to take the courses, I just wouldn't be able to do it. On-line courses at least make it possible!

        I could do it at my own expense.

        The online course was very convenient. I could work at my own pace when I had the time to.

        The fact that I could work at my own pace, and even turn assignments in early.

        Could do the course work at my convenience with gas prices so high, it is even nicer to be able to work from home or from my job.

        I like the fact that I could go to the professor's office or e-mail him if I had a problem online.

        The fact that I knew the exact dates of when an assignment was due as well as what was need ahead of time!

        Everything

        I liked being able to work on the assignments on my own time, and at my own pace. Every assignment was given or available at the beginning of the semester. So, you could finish it all at once, or space it out evenly. It was an option for each person.

        Great course! I learned a great deal.

        great course

        The chance to do it on my own time.

        Work at own pace.

        It was very organized and the instructor responded to mail within a day.He is very upfront with the class from day 1.He is very demanding when it comes to writing.I really liked the idea of this class being online.

        I learned a lot, if not more than an actual class in a classroom. I like how the teacher(s) are flexible due dates because most students have jobs and online courses are more convenient.

        It allowed me to do my work at home.

        I did not have to drive for over an hour to class. The discussions were very good.

        Being able to stay home in a quiet place to study and workon assignments

        I liked the opportunity to chat with my classmates about class topics and assignments.

        Not having to travel so far for class every week.

        Flexibility and time

        Online courses are particularly helpful for students who have fulltime jobs outside their college work.College assignments can be done at the student's discretion and on the student's timeline to meet assignment deadlines.Posting assignments online is a good way to get things turned in on time.Online discussion boards help students interact with each other and with the instructor--often getting questions answered within the hour from wherever the student(s) or instructor are.

        I was able to communicate online versus face to face since I tend to be quiet during class

        I enjoyed the freedom of being able to work from home and the convenience of being able to communicate with professors and students via an online process.Although there is more work with an online class, the convenience of the course outweighs the burden.

        I could do my work on my own time.

        The instructor answered my questions quickly

        I really learned a lot about the different standards that is required for teacher to follow.

        no class meetings

        It was a lot of fun and I know I learned a lot!

        Flexibility

        It being online

        I thought student-teacher communication was excellent for this course. The instructor answered e-mails quickly, and she contributed to discussions and answered questions posted by other students for discussion within a day or two. She was also quick to turn around graded assignments. I felt spoiled when it came to providing helpful and specific feedback in a timely manner. There were 2 sections, and I also enjoyed the instructorís feedback. I realize this may not happen with every class. I enjoyed the fact that I didn't have to be anywhere more than 3 times, and that if I completed my work on time I was left alone to complete it independently. This was a positive experience overall for me.

        Flexibility

        Simply the freedom to work on your own time without the travel time to class

        I feel that the professors were great.I also like the convenience because I live so far away, and gasoline is so expensive.

        He does an excellent job teaching online courses.His organization makes the class user friendly.The flexibility of working from home and ahead because of his organization is wonderful!

        The fact that we did not meet every week was convenient.

        Being able to complete the work outside of class at whatever time is best. I commute 3 days and work 12 hours at least on the other 2 so being able to do the work at whatever time is a lifesaver.

        Teacher was very helpful.

        I was able to it in my own time and I was not rushed to complete an assignment.

        Being able to take the course in my home office.

        Although I love the on-line courses, Webct is not as user friendly as it should be. All instructors use is differently, and I had a terrible time trying to attach documents to send to them. Fortunately, the lady on help desk was great and stayed on the phone with me until the problem was solved.

        My instructor does an excellent job organizing his online content.He is by far the best instructor I have had in this program.

        The ability to retrieve submitted assignments for editing was helpful.The discussion board allowed students to lead one another through difficult assignments.She allowed students to think things through and then acknowledged good work or gave direction toward a better way of solving problems.

        The online chats

        convenience

        It was very convenient for me to be able to access everything I needed for class online.

        Being a mother of small children, I knew I would not be able to attend courses on campus regularly. I liked that so long as I kept up with the coursework, I wasn't obligated to 'show up' anywhere for more than one face-to-face gathering. I think it takes discipline to stay on task when there's no actual class, but that was not a problem for me. I also liked that I could plan my discussions and activities and edit myself before I put the information out there. Specifically in regards to the course, I liked that the assignments had real world applications and could be used outside of the class. I also liked that I learned even more about technology tools than I had imagined I would.

        I liked that I did not have to spend 4 hours in the car to drive to and from class.I like that I can access and work on my class at times that do not take away from my family - during my lunch hour, after everyone is asleep!

        The convenience of not having to drive to campus especially with the rising cost of gas.

        convenience

        I was able to work at my own pace.I would not have been able to participate in the course had it been entirely on campus due to the distance that I must travel.

        The instructor was an excellent instructor and kept an open line with his students at all times. I appreciated his attentiveness and quick response to all my concerns and questions as I worked through this course. Once, I was feeling overwhelmed with all the writing and he called me at home to address my stress. He was even willing to change the due dates for our assignments after the class asked him to change from Saturday to Sunday to give us the weekend to complete our work. The instruction materials and podcasts were very educational along with the discussion questions he posted. He encourages us to think for ourselves and share our ideas with other students in the class.

        I loved the discussions and the fact that students could ask each other questions without being judged. I loved that we were allowed to work in our own time. And that our professor paid a lot of attention to the discussions and questions online and answered our questions promptly.

        The instructor is an excellent teacher that responds quickly and makes using WebCT easy.

        Very informative, straight to the point, and taught you step by step. Great job.

        Being able to share projects to the class and benefit from seeing our collective work-in-action.I preferred the use of collaborative tools such as Google docs and blogs than the threaded discussion boards. If the instructor set up the DB with some rigor then there was value to the posts.But without that expectation the DB posts were fairly aimless.

        I enjoyed the flexibility to complete the course work on my own time.

        Work on my own time.

        I liked that I could do the work in my own time.

        I really liked that I was able to do the class as my schedule allowed.The instructor posted the assignments giving the class enough time to complete them and I was even allowed to work ahead if my schedule allowed in order preparing for any upcoming times I would not have time to do the work the next week.

        I was not aware that we had an online course. My course was in class and not online but twice.

        This was a hybrid class, part f2f and part distance. I prefer hybrid courses because you develop a relationship/report with the instructor and other classmates that you don't get when a class is totally online.

        I enjoyed the flexibility that came with an online class, and with gas at almost $4 dollars a gallon, it was more economical than driving an hour and 15 minutes one way to get to school.

        Flexibility

        The fact that I could do my class work whenever I wanted but the fact that my teachers in online classes did not clearly present to the student when certain items were due drove me INSANE...I am extremely angry about this but this mostly had to do with an E-core class and not my distant learning class.I also think that the discussion areas were merely used as busy work and were not needed they did not seem as discussion areas to me but rather right a paper and let others respond to by saying something to a classmate that the teacher wanted to hear.††††† EX:This IS an interesting piece of art work.I really like the colors.Good post!'And such as. I will not recommend online classes to anyone.Sorry but this was not a good experience for me
