Laura K (NC) Posted August 6, 2008 Share Posted August 6, 2008 https://www.scholarsonline.org/Info/index.php My son took an HTML class online, our family's first online class. I was pretty disappointed with the whole thing. There was no text and there seemed to be very little structure. We wanted him to take this as a 1/2 credit class, in part, because it would be another verification that my own homeschool grading was consistent with more "objective" norms, but we were not told until the last class (today) that there would be no grades. I wish I had known that ahead of time. I signed him up because I can't teach HTML, but I know enough about it that extremely little was asked of him, and I know he doesn't really know enough about HTML now for me to count it as a half credit... nor did he do enough work to earn a half credit. I feel like it was a real waste of money. Without a textbook my son can't be expected to go further on his own to learn the material. Now we're stuck where my son would have been before the class... with me trying to figure out which text might help him and figuring out what else he has to learn. Just FYI. Maybe the classes in the regular school year are better. It would take a lot for me to sign up with Scholars Online again. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
