Online Science Courses

Specializes in Child/Adolescent Mental Health.

Hi all,

I thought that maybe it would be good to have a sticky for online science courses.

I am currently looking for an online/distance learning-- 4-- credit microbiology course. Of course it has to have a lab.

I know that both ccconline and Rio Salado offer these courses. Anyone have experience with either one of these in regards to microbiology, i.e. testing, level of difficulty, user friendly technology. I know from experience with Rio that the exams are proctored but how does ccconline deliver their exams?

If you have a link or resources to other colleges offering sciences--please post them here.

They offer A & P with lab, Chemistry with lab, & Biology with lab.

Here is their website: http://www.edukan.org

www.iowacconline.com

Chem, A & P I & II and General Bio as well as other courses.

I highly recommend the Chem with Dr. Klepper -- totally suited to teaching in the distance format.

How does Rio Salado offer the Micro lab online? Do they require the purchase of a lab kit also? tia

Wow, that's great that so many schools are offering more online classes. It's really a lifesaver for working parents. Our local college offers on average only 3-4 classes online. :o

Okay, ordered my lab kit and microscope today. All books are in for next semester too. I am really excited to be able to school at home and keep my work schedule more flexible.

Hi Kelly. I only found out about the distance learning from this thread. (I've actually never been to a chat room before!) but I do have some questions. Can I take my RN pre-req through online courses? How does it work? Can I transfer to a college or can I actually go through online courses to get an LVN to RN program? I'm sorry my questions are dumb. But I'm excited to hear that I can go to school through the internet. I went through a part time LVN program and we have a business that takes us to different parts of the city, state or country and there are times when I had to drive for 6 hours straight just to make it to class on time. I'm exhausted!!!! But I do want to continue going to school for my RN. BTW, I also have a young one and a teenage at home and I'd like to be spend more time with them. Any info will be very, very helpful. Thanks a million.
