I am currently an online student at DeVry in texas. I was wondering if anybody has had experiences with online classes good or bad? Have been attending since 2005 and should finish this year. My experience has been good although classes are expensive and keep going up. Has anybody on mylot attended an online university and how do you like it?

Well congrats on finishing up this year. I will be finished in December as well. I take online classes from the University of Phoenix. I like it. It is expensive but it really works well since I have to work 40 hours and have a kid and husband. I think the education may be better to me it is harder than a traditional college which I attended for two years.

I have found the classes to have more content in a shorter period of time, although my gpa has went up a point. My first 2 1/2 years was spent in a class room very tough to do working full time. When do you plan to finish?

Having taken an online course i can say that for me online courses are all motivation. There are no professors there from which u can hear a lectre from. If u need help there are oftern few peers one can rely on to help them. University courses are a serious thing and i realy dont think it should be something taken online; the course i took online was a highschool biology course.

What school did you take the classes online at? I have been taking them since 2005 and almost all of them have a live lecture once a week. The software allows for class participation and it is done live at a specified time.

If you are employed your employer may reimburse you 100%. To get that the degree or certificate has to be related to your job, I would look into it.

I have not taken any online classes so i dont know how it compares to being a traditional student. I hope you got what you want out of your experience.

I have done both and I perfer online especially if you are a working professional or a parent. They provide very in depth information and the professors are well trained.
