onlinedegree.com Courses
#1
How much time does it take to complete an onlinedegree.com course? What is entailed (essays, quizzes, etc.)? Anything I should be aware of?

The courses I plan on taking are:

Marcoecon, Accounting, Cooking and Education

Econ and Accounting are for degree requirements and cooking and education for my own personal enjoyment in the subjects. Also, I currently work with food so maybe the cooking will be useful for that too. I just wanted to know if all these courses are worth my time before starting them.

FYI, the TESU Transfer Guide is up! Along with the other's such as Excelsior, etc... Go crazy and get them credits!!
Transfer link is here: https://www.onlinedegree.com/wp-content/...apping.pdf

To answer you question, if you've done the courses at Study.com, it's similar. Main Video, quizzes, final exam.
50% is for the quizzes, 10% is attendance (watching the videos in full) and 40% for the final exam proctored.
If you do well on the quizzes and attendance, that's already 60%. You just need to have 70% cumulative to pass.

That is a really nice set of transfer credits. There is not a lot of overlap with existing credit sources.

Is that list official? I transferred in Astronomy and they counted it as AST-101, not NAS-121. Certainly would be nice to have it be NAS-121. Is there a way to have it re-evaluated?

They may have changed the evaluation as part of the articulation agreement discussions with OnlineDegree.com. If you want it reevaluated based on the new agreement, you can ask advising. I don't see why they wouldn't allow it, but who knows.

Why would you want it to be NAS-121 vs AST-101? Did you plan to take the astronomy course at Study.com as well or something? Given they have two different course codes that should be possible but sometimes they make restrictions where they don't allow two similar courses for double credit.

"How much time does it take to complete an onlinedegree.com course? What is entailed (essays, quizzes, etc.)? Anything I should be aware of?"

I have taken history, healthcare and astronomy at OD.
It generally takes me about 1.5 to 2 hours per lesson.  So if there are 20 lessons it would take me less than 40 hours to complete. I take notes. There is a quiz after every lesson (5-7 questions each). There have been no essays.

You should be aware that when you take the quizzes they do not tell you what questions you got wrong. It can be hard to tell which ones you got wrong.

Yeah, if it transferred as NAS-121 that would let me take AST-101 through Study.com or DSST for the last science towards my ASNSM-Math and the 2nd/3 sciences towards a potential ASNSM-CompSci, which would be my preferred situation. But I expected it to come in as AST-101, so not like it throws a monkey wrench in my plans if it stays that way. But would be nice if it didn't!

Yeah, I'll at least ask. If not, then as stated it's not a big deal for me.

Question regarding the history course though: doesn't TESU have a maximum number of 100 level credits that can be used in the AOS for a degree? Or is that only for certain degrees? If so, what is it? If it's lower than 15, the OD history course can't be used for the history degree, since four required courses (US History I & II, Western Civilization/World History I & II) are 100 level. Doesn't make a difference for me since I've already filled up my LL history requirements, but might for others.

Another observation based on the transfer list:
Three sciences (Astronomy, Biology, Environmental Science) that don't duplicate with their Study.com/CLEP/DSST versions (at least based on course numbers). I've only taken Astronomy, and that only from OD, but I would imagine that with all three subjects taking the OD course will give you a nice head start on studying for either the CLEP/DSST or to get through the Study.com course quickly. That means that someone like me who is scientifically-challenged only has to study one area of science to fill the TESU Physical/Natural World requirement.

This requirement is normally 2 100-level courses, is normally just for the BALS.

Most of the degrees that have a large number of core courses don't have the 100-level rule.  Think Psych, History, BSBA, CS.  They have a certain number of required courses that are normally LL, so then it switches to the required 18cr of UL throughout the degree instead. Or 12cr of UL in the AOS for the BSBA.
