  Easiest and Quickest Labs from Home
Posted by: YankeeDoodle - 2 hours ago - Forum: Saylor.org, Straighterline, Study.com, Ed4Credit.com, Shmoop.com, Sophia.Org Discussion - Replies (4)

I'm not a science guy. I'm a proud educator with a proud beard. I want my education degree. I teach ESL (English as a second language.) I want a quick and clean lab to do. Straighterline labs are preferred, but I'm all ears. Please tell me about your experiences with home lab courses. How quickly could you finish them? Was it messy? Was it difficult? What did the labs entail?

  Out of order unit on Onlinedegree.com Computer Science
Posted by: camjenks - 4 hours ago - Forum: Saylor.org, Straighterline, Study.com, Ed4Credit.com, Shmoop.com, Sophia.Org Discussion - Replies (1)

First of all, I think this is a great course so far. Very challenging, but I've learned a lot and I think the material is covered well. However, I really started getting confused on some of the later units and struggling to put things together. It turns out that one of the units is skipped and appears later in the course, so I was missing an introduction to a bunch of the concepts that were being built on. The lesson: Algorithms - Searching and Sorting appears as lesson 23, but it should be lesson 20. 
 
I remember the outro of lesson 19 video saying that algorithms was next, but shrugged it off thinking the lesson just had a different title. I was then pretty confused through all of the next 3 lessons covering recursions and graphs because it kept mentioning things that had apparently been covered that I couldn't remember or find in my notes. Finally, when I got to the algorithm video I realized what had happened. I feel like I need to redo those 3 lessons I was confused on to try to piece it all together. At least I still did ok on the quizzes for those so it didn't bring down my grade.
 
The same lesson order error is on the website that the main videos link to (https://onlinedegree.kanopy.com/?utm_med...nd-sorting). However, I think I found the original sources for the course at The Great Courses (https://www.thegreatcoursesplus.com/show..._exercises), and that website has things in the correct order.
 
I already reported the issue, so hopefully it gets addressed. Just wanted to post a heads up in case anyone taking this has the same confusion that I had. It sucks because you can't even access the lessons until you've completed the previous one, so even knowing this we'll be stuck doing the course out of order until it gets fixed.

Edit: Actually, maybe you can just go to https://onlinedegree.kanopy.com/?utm_med...nd-sorting and watch the video. If that works for anyone, at least watch algorithms video and understand it before starting on the graphs lessons.

  UL vs LL difficulty
Posted by: ryanaryn - Today, 02:04 AM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (5)

What is the difference between UL and LL tests? 
For example In JSD's BA in Psychology map I see this: Abnormal Psychology, TECEP (UL), UExcel (UL), ed4online (UL?), Coopersmith (UL?), Study.com (LL).
Does that mean that the Study.com course is easier, less comprehensive?  Could I take the Study.com course, and then test out using the TECEP and expect to pass without needing to cover more study material? 
Any insight into the differences is much appreciated!

  Study.com Quiz Grade Question
Posted by: natshar - Yesterday, 10:11 PM - Forum: Saylor.org, Straighterline, Study.com, Ed4Credit.com, Shmoop.com, Sophia.Org Discussion - Replies (4)

I completed all of the quizzes in a course with a score of 100%. If I scroll down and look through each individual quiz it says 5/5.  However, when I look at top for the "grade breakdown" it says my grade for quizzes is 95/100 and I've completed every quiz. I'm confused by this. Anyone know anything about this?

  Charter Oak Ethical Decision-Making
Posted by: edbrain - Yesterday, 05:05 PM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (3)

Has anyone used a philosophy course to satisfy the ethical decision-making requirement? Just curious. Thanks!

Ethical Decision-Making (3 credits)

Students will be able to use critical thinking skills to make ethical decisions. May be met by taking a course that has a significant ethics component, or by taking courses such as Ethics, Business Ethics, Health Care Ethics, or Computer Ethics.

Course description for the philosophy course I'm considering:
The course will take you through a study of philosophy within the seven major historical periods with primary consideration being given to outstanding thinkers and trends of thought such as rationalism, empiricism, idealism, realism, existentialism and naturalism. You will explore key issues such as skepticism, faith and reason, science and religion, free will and determinism, and the problem of evil.

  Full-Time Work from home jobs?
Posted by: acamp - Yesterday, 01:24 PM - Forum: Off Topic - Replies (5)

Good afternoon all,
I am a full-time public school teacher. While I enjoy what I do (minus some crazy classes at times haha) my desire would be to work from home full-time. I have a large family and my wife had many health issues in the past (and still not 100%). . I would love to be able to work from home full-time yet help/assist her or the kids if the situation arose. I also would need a higher salary - around the $85K+ range.

So my question - I have no experience in IT or sales. Do any you know of which jobs people could work from home full-time and are financially secure? If so, I would tackle any additional degree online (if it’s a big 3 testable one or near test out and get it done). I have a BA degree and also an associates but my entire work experience up to this point has been teaching. I’m 34

I would love to hear your thoughts. Thank you in advance everyone.

  TESU BA Communications Plan
Posted by: gister46 - Yesterday, 02:43 AM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (10)

Hi, folks.  First time poster.  I'm a high school dropout that got a GED and now I'm trying to get a degree by 40 so I can get at least 20 years of work down with a decent salary that doesn't force me to work hundred hour weeks.  Maybe I can retire with some dignity -- because 35 with a toddler and a mortgage and a recent major job transition where my salary was cut in half is scary.  So far, I have 27 hours at a community college from a few years back and a couple IT certifications (CompTIA A+, Network+, Salesforce Admin, Scrum, and some Google ads/analytics certs).  

Anyway, my plan for a Bachelor of Arts from TESU in Communications is attached.  It has some gaps.  Are there some experts here that can look at it and give some pointers?  I can't seem to access any of the wikia links that have the templates or getting started guides in the sticky posts -- they all say "not a valid community".  I just did the best I could off the top of my head in the attachment.  Let me know if it doesn't make any sense.

Thanks!

  ALEKS

Can someone walk me through the whole ALEKS thing? I have been approved through TESU to take the courses, just when i looked at the website I found it rather confusing. Any step by step guide to the College Algebra course would be fantastic.
