AZBlueBell, thank you for sharing your experience.
I might choose the hybrid, it just depends on what MCCCD school I am placed at. My first choice is Mes Day (UIU Hybrid compatible), then Mesa Afternoon (mostly UIU Hybrid compatible), and Gateway Day (not Hybrid compatible). Plus I know of students who were offered last minute placements at MCCCD schools
that weren't on their list initially. I live in Ahwatukee, so the drive isn't an issue for me. It really comes down to placement, because I really do prefer some in-person class time, plus I'd love to bond with my cohort while there. I KNOW I am going to need buddies!
-Can you explain further how your first online class was so challenging?
-What else did you get out of the in-person class time besides being able to complete assignments?
-Was it lecture heavy? Or more of a time to work on those assignments?
-Are the online discussion questions and responses only for the online students? As a hybrid student did you not have to complete these?
How awesome is it to have MCCCD instructors at UIU!
Thank you for your input. I truly appreciate your perspective!
