Hello everyone, I was just wondering if there is anyone up here that attends college online? I do and I like going to college online. It gives me a chance to still do what I got to do during the day without having to leave home to go to class. So far, I have been doing really good in my classes and really progressing toward my degree. Thank you, mylotters.

haha i've thought about going to online school, but i didn't know if it were good enough for a good degree, and i don't think they do it with psychology. i do have it in consideration, and i have some time to think about this, i don't graduate high school until 2010.

You can always go online and do a research to see what degress are being offered online and at what schools. I am pretty sure you will be able to find something.

I do the whole college thing online for the fact that they only offer the classes i need in the morning or online and I work during the day. For the fact that I work I love that I get to do my classes online. It is so much easier and for the fact that I get a better response from my teachers and faster than actually attending classes. Honestly going to college online is one of the best things to do, but I only recommend doing it if you can stay on track. When I first started i couldn't stay on track and fell behind.

Thats why I like online college because it is flexible and you do not have to change your schedule to accommodate with your schooling.

Hello! that sounds great,full of freedom and money-saving.But one thing transcending all else is that we should be self-discipline otherwise there wouldn't be any good effect on our education. happy mylotting everyday!

I'm taking on-line classes through my local community college. It really is pretty cool. I wish I would have picked up more classes though. It gives me tons of time and the freedom to "go to class" when I can. I also feel I am able to move at a much faster pace then in a traditonal class. I'm already 2 weeks ahead in my assignments.

Going to college online and really going to collge has vast difference and experience of course online study is godd for some type of subjects where you can acquire knowledge. But college life is something every one should experience the group activities you do and the fun in the classrooms all are memorable experiences which one can cherisgh in their later years also .Of course online colleges are good but to some extent

Well, I feel more comfortable going online because I can concentrate more on my studies and I have never been the type to enjoy group activities.

I've never attended college completely online. I have taken online classes in the past though. And for the few times I did, I loved it once past a few minor problems here and there.

I have been going to college online since August of 07. I really enjoy it and i will be done this August so im really looking forward to it. Some of the classes have been hard, but im made it past. i have failed a couple in the begining because i wasnt to sure on waht i was doing at first but im sure im not the only one who has done this. I like having the cabability to do all my school work right here in my bed and its great. Not using the car or wasting gas is great, you can always email your teacher if you have any questions. Im glad to see that someone else enjoys classes online like me. Enjoy Mylotting

I have been going since September 2008 and I reall enjoy it too. I like it because I can still be at home and do what I have to do during the day without having to leave the house.

Hello, I am going to the University of Phoenix online college. I like it and the work is pretty simple. The work gets harder and the thing I think about is what have I really learned. I am not saying you will not gain knowledge I am saying that it seems it has been hard for me to focus on my work and actually study well. I think if I were in an actual class I would be able to study harder and concentrate more. :)
