Besides the convenience of the online medium, Evans said there are many advantages to these online classes, such as valuing time with the instructor. “I think one of the major pros is that we can push off the boring ‘sit-down watch a lecture type of stuff’ to watching a webcast,” Evans said. “Students can do that on their own time and it makes time with the instructors much more valuable. We will do problems that are geared and tailored towards our exams and discussion so I think students really appreciate that quite a bit.” Jane Rivas, junior in LAS, said she took a partially taught online organic chemistry course last year.
