The short answer is no. Online and hybrid courses teach the same material as our on-campus courses.
Online classes may even require more weekly work, but they are more convenient.
Students who have poor technology skills or who need the discipline of regularly scheduled class meetings in order to stay on task are likely to feel that online courses are more difficult than classroom-based courses.
Students who have good technology skills, are self-disciplined, regularly make time to study and complete assignments, and have good reading and writing skills are likely to feel that online courses are as similarly challenging as on-campus classes.
