Has anyone had any experience with doing on line courses ( with reputable , accredited colleges or universities) ??

    Online.

    You're going to fail proofreading and copy editing.

    We have Virtual University here. But I never tried it. Make sure you read up on their history before committing.

    I did all my courses online for two years. It's probably a lot different from what I had, you being at a college level, and me being at a grade school level however. Make sure you do your research on the online school. Some are good, some aren't so good. Research everything you can about it.

    Ha ! yeah !
    Not to worry I don't put much thought into what I type on here , besides , in my days of schooling we never had computers or the internet . So " on line - online " is a relatively new term for me ( past 12 years or so lol ).

    I would also look at taking a course in Professional Grammar and Punctuation.

    For starters anyway .

    Proof Reading and copy editing.........dots.....useless, we are talking here about exposing the truth not proof reading and copy editing...that's just like spending time from your life to do what machines should do instead and you are not a machine.

    What truth am I exposing? :confused: I'm just looking for a cruisey job , I like picking up mistakes and I like reading ...sounds good to me.

    They are right you know Nick , that avatar is rather gay .:D

    The high school I attended offered college online courses. I took one course [pre-calc] for 6 months and got the credits and a B. It's all about timing.

    All of the lessons had a time limit on them and once watched, would expire. I used a screen recorder (screenflow, the equivalent of Camtasia). The quizzes and tests also had a time limit on them.

    It's really not that hard but it's a pain to do in the comfort of your home. I would get all fidgety, start fapping half way through the lesson, etc...

    Unless it's from a real "bricks and mortor" university, avoid it.

    If you know the school has good education at their campus, online courses are great; you can do them at your own home. Make sure you are on top of what you are doing in your courses. That's all there is to it :)
