So for anyone who comes across here with questions- I ended up at GCU. I'm in my second course. Attending an online course is very different and you have to be self motivated because no one will contact you for anything except your CLC members. You have two discussions each week, due wednesday and friday and you have to respond to your peers, two posts per day and I do a total of ten posts each week. Two in response to the DQs and then eight responses to my classmates. There is also an assignment due each week. APA format papers- 750-1000 words in length. The CLC group assignments so far have been power points. You have to fill out an agreement with you group members, divvy up tasks and come up with due dates for those tasks, etc. Then you do the actual assignment. Make sure you hold your group members accountable and start early. Follow the rubric for the assignments.
Grading- Grading is on a a, a-, b+, b, b- kinda scale. Getting a solid A is 95% and up. I didn't realize this was the case when starting, kinda wish I had known. I would have still picked GCU though, and I'm happy so far.
I cannot even begin to express my frustrations with CLCs and people's crazy amounts of plagerized posts. Also, how is it people still don't know how to so APA citations for their posts?! I called out a group member who gave me almost completely copy and pasted stuff for an assignment. Almost completely- she changed 'the nurse' to 'I'..... Seriously?! Almost done though. Third to last course.
