I found out that I learn better in a class setting through that experience. I didn’t complete the program or earn the degree, but I definitely gained the most knowledge through the face to face interactions. I guess that’s just my learning style.

Some require you to work in teams and submit team projects, such as University of Phoenix. I was teamed up one time with class-mates in separate time zones, which made it very challenging for us to find a common time to connect online. Others just allow you to work on your own. I much prefer the latter, as I don’t want my grade in a class to be dependent on another students work.

I went back to school when I was 29 and was working a full-time job, so it was hard to fit on-campus classes into my schedule. At first, I was afraid that I wouldn’t have the motivation to succeed in an online environment, but I actually found that it had the opposite effect. If anything, it made me more disciplined because I knew that I was pretty much on my own. I’m happy to say that I’ve maintained a 4.0 GPA the whole way. As Chris said, make sure you find a good school and a program that will work for your lifestyle. Good luck!
