Poll: is Taking college or university classes online is bad or good idea?



Please only consider taking classes from online from either the local community college, the state-public university, or a private, reputable university. It's best to forgo those for-profit schools as their course credits usually do NOT transfer to other schools, even if the for-profit school is regionally accredited.

Depends on the school offering the classes, and the classes. Some things really are not well suited to online studies, especially where hands-on practice is required. E.g. sciences (lab work is essential), nursing, a few others. In other areas, it can be the right choice for a lot of people. Also a good choice is some on-campus & some online classes, which some universities offer.


As long as it is an accredited program, it is a good thing. Never understood why so many bashed the night school or when it came about. Online course. One is still improving themselves and such.


Good idea, but you must be ready


It’s fine, but you should thoroughly research the colleges & universities first. Some are bogus.
