This course requires a high degree of concentration and personal study, since assignments are largely dependent upon what you can come up with.

This class was helpful, but i feel the work load for a general education course was to high since I took this class in school, and it was a lot less work.

It was pretty good, but there was a lot of writing, and once or twice both graders disagreed with each other. So I got a higher grade on my draft then on my final.

This was a good course and challenging. What I did not like was that there was no "verbal" feedback on the essays. Just a letter grade. It would have been more helpful if there were some comments made.

This class is not terribly difficult. what is frustrating is that they give you different graders between the draft and the final of a paper, and so you do not get consistent feedback/grading.

This course provides a thorough understanding of the different types of writing.It was extremely helpful to have specific sources to use (OWL Purdue). To do the course properly, you really need to complete all the reading from additional sources. The work is comparable to online courses that I've taken at my college, and has definitely surpassed some of those. I liked being able to work at my own pace. I usually do poorly at testing because of memory problems, but because of the way the course was set up, the quizzes were short, and I was able to complete them well enough.

At first, it was difficult because I have never done a course on line, but it was interesting and educative. Getting a new experience using the on-line course was challenging.
