In Monday’s general meeting, The Equinox staff members were asked to engage in a flash poll and describe what makes a good online class. This is what they had to say:
“Class discussions about relevant topics.”
“Visual aids and more interaction between professor and student.”
“Interactive classes, not just lecture-type classes so students feel more engaged.”
“Frequent communication from professors.”
“Planning out assignments to a T and not just leaving important assignments in the air or with too much free time in between.”
“Having the ability to revise assignments. Since we are not always able to meet with professors, it would be helpful if we could receive feedback on assignments to make up for that and have the chance to improve them, too.”
“Using different media/resources to grasp a student’s attention.”
“Full effort from professors and students.”
“Patience makes a great online class because technological problems are inevitable.”
Tell us what you think makes an online class great.
