So, I'm taking SOC 101 online at CSN. It's a fast-paced, 4 week course. Is it just me, or are these online courses more of a "self-teaching" process? Although I find our readings to be very interesting, I don't think feel like the professor is doing much to contribute to the learning process. I have learned a lot, but it has been through my own endeavors of completing the readings and doing the assignments in a serious and thorough manner. I suppose there is only so much you can do when not lecturing in front of an actual class. This is my first online-course so I wasn't sure if I was the only one with this experience. Any other thoughts?
