FIRST EXPERIENCE WITH ONLINE CLASSES?
No. I took online courses while pursuing my Bachelors degree as well.
WHY CU DENVER?
My fiancé along with a few friends had taken a few online courses at CU Denver and told me about their great experiences with course quality and with outstanding faculty. CU Denver was my only choice when going back to school for my Masters!
BIGGEST EDUCATIONAL TRIUMPH?
My biggest educational triumph was taking my online courses at CU Denver while traveling and living abroad in Australia and Fiji!
Even given the time zone change and other circumstances, my professors were understanding and beyond helpful. I was able to maintain a 4.0 GPA throughout the entire duration of my Masters program. I graduated as the ILT Outstanding Student of 2014.
WHAT BARRIERS HAVE YOU HAD TO FACE?
My biggest barrier was the time zone change abroad and access to internet. While I was living in the outback of Australia, my internet connection was minimal. I had to really maximize my time online and do course work far in advance in order to stay ahead.
WHERE ARE SOME OF THE LOCATIONS THAT YOU HAVE BEEN WHILE PARTICIPATING IN CLASSES?
While participating in online courses, I visited Australia, Fiji, Iceland, Ireland, and Sweden and too many states in the US to count! This all would not have been possible if I had taken traditional face-to-face courses.
Though I technically graduated by this time... I also went on a proposal/scavenger hunt around the world.
WHAT STANDS OUT ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCES?
The communication and instant help from CU Online helped me achieve my educational goals with ease!
I am currently the Course Developer at CU Online. I was so impressed by my education at CU Denver that I applied to work there too. I hope to remain a part of the CU Online family for many, many years to come!
