I thought Walden was a competency based school. Or are only certain programs competency based? I am looking at their MS in Project Management. It's $955 per credit.  Confused

  OMG, I need glasses! What would you do?
Posted by: bjcheung77 - Today, 02:16 AM - Forum: Off Topic - Replies (4)

So, got my eyes checked out as I've been having bad eye strain for the little while... it's getting less clear when I view things!

I have a prescription for reading and another for distance, so technically, I have two sets of glasses I need to get...

I'm not sure what to get, a bifocal or progressive, or two pairs of glasses, I dunno, I want a pair of computer glasses too.

Too much computer time is also giving me a headache or migraine, need to see what I can do about that as well.  Oh dear...

I do some eye exercises and it does help a little, what would you do to "lessen" the strain on the eyes? TIA

  Microsoft Azure Status Website
Posted by: bjcheung77 - Yesterday, 07:31 PM - Forum: Off Topic - No Replies

Overall it's a good application for secondary security, just like the RSA Tokens, etc...
I thought it was a good training program and I wrote about MS Azure training earlier: https://www.degreeforum.net/mybb/Thread-...ndamentals

Sadly though, it seems MS Azure Active Directory is down globally.  Boo!
No wonder I can't use my MS Authenticator app for remote access! 

Basically, you can see it here: https://status.azure.com/en-us/status
The site refreshes every two minutes, it's pretty cool to see what the status is worldwide.

Note: Those using Azure, MS Office 365, Teams, Webmail, will be affected, it's posted on their Twitter (MicroSoft 365 Status)

  Need Help with Degree Plan for Big 3
Posted by: samiam - Yesterday, 12:07 PM - Forum: Degree Planning Advice - Replies (9)

Need a degree plan or spreadsheet and help on where I should go and where my current classes best fit....

I've a few things that impact this:

  • I turn 18 next year Aug 2020; I'm worried about the college degree programs changing twice before I can enroll.

  • I don't want to take the Accuplacer at all.

  • I don't want to enroll in another math course at all.

  • I want to use my ALEKS math class on my ACE transcript. This class was a pain. 

  • I would like to major in History, Archaeology, or Anthropology. 

  • I found most Anthropology degrees can't be done online, so I'll settle for the other 2 for now, and try to get to the archaeology one day. 

  • I've enrolled for HS.edu courses at ASU, biology with lab is my first class (RA). I plan to take more here to fulfill some of the RA requirements. 

  • I might enroll in a TEL Learning class, just so I can have some RA classes on my transcripts for the TESU, EC, or COSC requirements; I under they vary and goes up to 24. 
  • I prefer to graduate sometime next year.

  • I'm currently starting math from scratch (I have a learning disability and it's not been easy), but it'll l take me longer than everyone else to get to where I need to be. But I'm doing it so that one day, I won't have the threat of failing and not going being able to continue on when I want to get certain degrees. 

My classes from ACE is attached in the spreadsheet. If anyone could help me figure out these 3 schools.

  Need 2-3 quick elective credit
Posted by: collegechick - Yesterday, 12:07 PM - Forum: Degree Planning Advice - Replies (3)

Found my notes from two years ago listing out what I needed to complete my degree.  TESU counted one of my TEEX A&M IT courses as an UL.  Leaving me needing 8 electives.  I've completed 6 of those.  What would be a quick and possibly free elective for BALS?  Thank you for your help.

  Update on StraighterLine/ACE credits at COSC
Posted by: sambam0812 - Yesterday, 07:52 AM - Forum: COSC - Charter Oak State College Discussion - No Replies

I know one of the draws of COSC is if you send them a transcript from one of their ACE partners directly (rather than from your ACE account) they used to transfer the actual letter grades over.

I received my transcript evaluation with quite a few partner credits, and they were evaluated on the P/F scale so they don’t apply to your GPA. I spoke with my admissions advisor (Moses) and he didn’t know either—he checked and apparently the change occurred sometime in 2019. One of my reasons for *taking* the partner courses was so I could raise my GPA, but thankfully I was able to get approved for credit forgiveness.

Also, for those who haven’t paid attention to the SL website....if you complete 4 SL courses before matriculation, COSC will give you a “scholarship” of 10% off your tuition and fees for the duration of your degree. Note you can still apply and be accepted to COSC, you just have to send in your transcripts from SL about 5-7 days before the next start date so that the bursar will have enough time to adjust your account.

Big Grin Big Grin  Have a great Monday everyone.

  Coursera - Free online courses through December 31 2020
Posted by: bjcheung77 - Yesterday, 02:18 AM - Forum: Free Courses and Certificates and Good Deals - Replies (2)

FYI, the ones that interest me are some of these, a couple are new: https://www.coursera.org/professional-certificates
Sadly, I don't think they are offering any of these for free though: https://www.coursera.org/mastertrack

This deal has been mentioned before, but with minor differences, I think the programs or length of the freebie has changed.
Link mentions extension to Dec 31, 2020 : https://blog.coursera.org/coursera-toget...-covid-19/
