Can online classes be helpful in learning? I strongly urge anyone who has the opportunity to take an online class not to take the online class, and I say this because I have taken two in my life time. With these online classes, I was the only one who I could depend on to get my assignments done. I like to have the comfort of knowing that I can call people or see people in class and talk to them about the assignments we have. During the time I was taking the class online, I lost my syllabus and was unable to know when my assignments were due. I know that these are personal reasons as to why you should not take an online class, but if you are like me, you may end up doing the same thing I did.
