I was wondering how the lab works with the online Science classes at Rio. I wanted to take Micro and A&P I & II.
I took BIO201 at Rio and I was the first class to take it with the revamped labs, this was about 3 years ago. The labs were ALOT of work, averaging me about 30 hours a week. I don't know if it is still the same. There were many complaints because the software was askew and mark things off that weren't wrong, labs turned in never arrived, yada, yada, yada. I took BIO202 in person at Glendale since I thought nothing could be worse. Well,,,,,,,,,,,,,the cats soaked in formaldehyde all summer without air conditioning were worse
Plus I hated disecting those cats and having to look at them - they really freaked me out since I am a cat lover.
Anyway, back to topic. THe Rio labs were just lots of paperwork and tediously looking up and researching thousands of things, entering data into the Rio computer, and that's about it. You don't look at CAT anatomy (which to me is useless), you use ADAM software and look at human anatomy which is much more useful in the real world.
