review is for the Colorado State University (CSU) Global Campus.
I have been 100% happy with all but one class,
but the one class led to a grade appeal that
caused me to find out how horrible the administrative support
is at this school.
Go here if you want, but
be aware that they feel that professors owe you only
numerical grades (a job teaching assistants do at most real
schools) and not actual feedback, help, or instruction. If you
get an unexplained poor grade and appeal it, all they
will do is point to the grading rubric and say
“here's where the points were deducted.” They will not show
you what in your paper was wrong or missing or
ask the professor to do so.
If you are satisfied
with a numerical grade without feedback and with the knowledge
that you will never get an explanation if you don't
understand a grade, attend classes through CSU's Global Campus. Professors
at this institution are basically glorified TAs. They give you
a number and sometimes respond to discussions. The rest of
the course is pre-designed for them and all they have
to do is fill in some blanks. The course designers
also often spell simple words like “exercise” wrong in assignment
guidelines, and I have found several answers to tests that
were incorrect in the system.
You'd learn as much from
“attending” your average online diploma mill and purchasing a few
used textbooks from Amazon.
