I have never taken an online class, but the experiences that Laird share from teaching an online class backs up my thoughts. I thought of taking online classes before, but decided against it for I believed I would understand a course in the traditional classroom environment. I agree with Laird’s statements of online courses; students seem less respectful, less understanding, less caring, and more arrogant. Though I have not partaken in online classes, I have had homework assignments that required access to the internet. I found it harder to try and learn a subject on a screen rather than learning it from my teacher and a textbook.
