I really think the online program requires students to organize themselves, most teachers are very comprehensive, although you should ask other students thru blackboard before enrolling in a course because there are some teacher that are not so flexible, I had to withraw from 1 class this semmester since one of my teachers was not willing to receive late work.(My fault, ofcourse) Other teachers understand that the online program is for people that lacks time and they give you more flexibility. It really depends on the teacher. Overall I give it a 9/10

I only recently started the program at Fort Hays State University and while it's true that there are problems with Blackboard, I find that the instructors have been more than helpful. Those that I have are quick to respond to emails and are very accommodating and always helpful. Deadlines have been extended as needed when Blackboard went down. The Help Desk generally gets back to me in a timely manner whether it be via email or by phone. For the money, I am very satisfied with the program overall.

  • Use of Technology:

Although FHSU Virtual College is affordable, the technology is extremely problematic. The Blackboard online lecture system is constantly down, exams cut off in the middle and then you must wait days for an instructor to reset the exam. Instructions for assignments are often unavailable and grading criteria is frequently unclear. Although they will extend deadlines due to the frequent computer system failures, this does not present a feasible solution to the problem since uncompleted assignments just stack up while one is waiting for the Blackboard system to be repaired. The computer help desk is not available during the hours when working students need assistance. Administration frequently fails to respond to emails. One instructor, by means of web postings to students, seems quite uncaring. I really don't want to do this program but since I've already invested so much money in it, I just don't have a choice. I would not recommend this program to others until the technological systems are fixed.
