Study.com was generous to give me a free month of membership for some promotion offer they were doing for former members regarding employers and tuition reimbursement. I decided to use it to take Business 107: Organizational Behavior, a class I may or may not need for an upcoming goal I might be working on (I still haven't decided 100% on this). It's uncertain if the class is even necessary for this goal, and it most likely won't be, so that took a lot of pressure off of me and stopped me from taking this course too seriously.
That said, I powered through the course over this weekend, while still not cutting into any holiday celebrations. I made sure to get 100% on all of the quizzes, but some of those videos i literally watched at 3x speed (and wouldn't you know it, those are the problem areas I had on the final! what a coincidence ). I was doing it at a pace that I really wasn't retaining much. Part of that was because of the course being free and therefore not much risk to me if I failed, part of it was me probably not actually having need for the course even if I passed, and part was because the subject matter was a lot more boring than the Psych courses I took with them (I don't know how you business folks do it)! I wouldn't recommend doing this, of course. I wasn't being a responsible student.
I wanted to do well on the quizzes so I only needed 55% on the final, but I actually ended up with 85% on the final anyway! It's kind of a testament to Study.com's system that I was able to pick up on the material even when I wasn't too motivated to learn it. It's still pending proctor review and all that, which will probably take a while, but I submitted it to ACE already anyway to see how fast I can get it on the transcript.
If you're motivated to learn the material and like the subject, I'm sure you can easily handle this course. I like the changes Study.com has made since I last took a course there in March. I like the quizzes now being counted toward your grade, and I **love** the instant preliminary score on the final exam. For those curious, it was 121 videos/quizzes.
I don't need anything in particular for the second exam of the month. Any one know of one of the easier, shorter courses they have? Maybe I'll go the lazy route
