Everyone thinks online college classes are the life, you don’t have to get up and get ready and you can do the work anytime you want. I believe however that it’s a lot more work then just a regular class.
First of all you basically have to teach yourself the lessons. If you are the type of person that can read and follow directions then online classes isn’t something you’d be good at. I’m currently in an online survey of America history class at the moment and it’s hard because there’s not someone to tell me if I’m studying the right thing or not. This makes tests harder due to the fact that if you didn’t study what the important information was then you’d basically fail.
Another thing that makes online classes harder is the fact that you might get lazy or forget to do assignments. College online classes end sooner then regular classes also so you need every point you can get the pass the class. Missing a couple of assignments can bring your grade from a A to a C.
U.S News says, “Since most employers and others colleges won’t accept the credits, it’s a waste of time and money to choose an unaccredited school. Verify a college’s accreditation with the federal government.”
What that means is that if you were to switch colleges at any point then some of the colleges would not even accept the hard work you did.
