SHOW NOTES: In the MYTH WARRIORS™ series we are targeting ideas to begin to assess whether they are credible or not. The topic for this episode is, “Taking college courses online is easy!”
This is a myth. If you already have completed one or more college degrees, it is a myth yet you have a higher probability of success with this modality of college classes (as college classes are not easy whether online or on campus).
Is it “true” that many people are taking online college courses? Yes.
“According to Columbia University’s Community College Research Center, for example, about seven million students — about a third of all those enrolled in college — are enrolled in what the center describes as traditional online courses.” (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/19/opinion/the-trouble-with-online-college.html?_r=0)
If everyone is doing it (i.e., it is popular), it must be easy, right? Wrong.
“Students preferred direct instruction if they expected a course to be difficult, singling out math and science [...]. They also preferred a face-to-face setting when studying subjects they considered interesting or important, especially if the class was in their major. Many of the students said they learned more when the instructor is present.” (http://articles.latimes.com/2013/apr/25/local/la-me-ln-study-online-20130425)
“[C]ourses delivered solely online may be fine for highly skilled, highly motivated people, but they are inappropriate for struggling students who make up a significant portion of college enrollment and who need close contact with instructors to succeed.[…]” (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/19/opinion/the-trouble-with-online-college.html?_r=0)

This episode is part of our EDUCATORS’ EDEN™ series wherein we explore the paradise that the most passionate, creative and committed educators create for themselves, their students, peers, administrations and institutions!
I have taught around 350 3 - credit hour course equivalents over the past 17 years. Whew! I have taught associate degree, bachelors degree, and graduate degree level courses. I have taught at public highly selective institutions, at private institutions, at for profit institutions, at open access degree programs, in lecture halls with hundreds of students in a single class and online with smaller classes. I have also mentored new faculty and coached existing faculty in their classes. I am not even including all of the adult education I have provided as a corporate trainer to organizations around the world! I am excited to discuss this specific episode topic of, "Teaching college courses online is easy!…NOT!”
The stereotype of an online college professor who has no commute to work and is able to lounge around their home while “teaching” intermittently is wildly inaccurate. The reality is that the technology requires that online educators commit to an entire additional area of subject matter expertise (software, understanding of hardware, customization of content and delivery via rapidly changing software systems). The traditional concept of teaching during “class” is upended with a “class” that is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This is combined with the desire for instant gratification that many of us have due to the technology providing us instant access to what we want places very strenuous demands on the online college educator.
In this episode, I will be dicussing the various virtual opportunities available to students. Homeschool students and virtual school students often have limited ways to take other courses that they would enjoy. With websites and organizations such as Coursera, edX, and the Virtual Homeschool Group, homeschoolers are able to participate and enroll in classes, including advanced courses, for free. They are even able to take part in college classes that are taught by professors from Ivy League Universities, including MIT, Harvard, and Stanford. I will be having Ms. Tammy Moore, founder of the Virtual Homeschool Group explaining the services that the co-op provides to students.

Are there any good guys on Wall Street or are they all bad guys? Individual Investors and Retail Traders often hear about the bad things that happen on Wall Street with corrupt banks, scams, insider trading, and scandals. Is the Financial Services Industry the most corrupt industry in the United States, or is this just how Main Street views Wall Street? Martha Stokes CMT talks frankly and candidly about what is Wall Street, why there seems to be so much corruption, and whether there are any good guys left.
