I know this really isnt the same thing, but I'll go for it anyway.
I take most of my college classes online, I LOVE that I can work at my own pace and so on. It's up to me to read the materials, do the home work, and we have forums we have to post on as well. The only downfall that I have is that I am a bit of a procrastinator, so it's tough when I can't get my butt into gear and get my work done. I find that a lot of times I'm messin around HERE instead of doing homework. Lol (tisk tisk)
Anyway, school can seem overwhelming at first, but it gets easier as you go. You'll find your own groove, and soon you'll have it down pact!
