I finally got my grades back from the two classes I’m taking at Tulsa Community College. I’m ok with what I got for a grade in the class (most likely a B in both Old Testament and in Eastern Religion — I had a shot for an A, but blew it when it came to getting all of the weekly assignments done in time), but I’m hoping to do better next semester.
As for the experience of online learning goes, it went better than I thought. I liked the mostly self-directed nature of the class, and enjoyed the text book readings (particularly for the Eastern Religions class), but it was really a struggle to keep up with the required message board assignments. I definitely do not think that online learning is the best deal for everybody, or even for most people, but as an option I really appreciated the chance to take these classes with my crazy schedule.
