I took the online version of the class. You need to work on your own pace. It is not that hard most of the questions come from the lecture material and review test. If you have a little interest to Astronomy you will enjoy the class. She responds your e-mails like in one hour. Not so much homework just 2 discussion posts.

Very difficult online class. Don't take this as a science gen ed. It is very difficult and requires an excessive amount of studying considering it's a gen ed.

Mind-numbingly easy class. The comic book-like way the material is covered is annoying, and she tries to get you to memorize a couple constellations for each exam, but those are my only complaints.

Most difficult online course I've ever taken. And the final is cumulative, which is as horrendous as it sounds. Do NOT take this.

Web section. Definitely not easy but 20% is participation which you get by default anyway. She also drops the lowest exam grade. If you don't pass, you didn't try.

This class is poorly designed. Yes, it is interesting that it is a story, but the story is dumb and seems very simple, but then the tests are nearly impossible. If you are considering taking astronomy, I would take it in a classroom. It seems like she took a lot of time to make this, but it backfired.

Web class. I thought the modules were interesting and beat having to go to a physical classroom. You will have to study to get your grade (sorry), but it's not very hard. Study guides are very helpful. Having interest in the subject makes it a lot easier though. Very interesting material and covers a lot of topics, doesn't focus on dry stuff.

Awesome prof that took an immense amount of time putting together a format. No textbook just a well put together story to follow which adds humor to some otherwise dry material. Not easy but fair. All material is covered in chapter questions and review packets which prof provides. Great Class! I wish more were taught that way.

The people who said this class is hard must be complete morons! This was by far the easiest class I have ever taken. She gives you half of the test of the questions on the test before you even take it. Don't listen to the slackers who wait til the last minute to do everything. This class is AMAZING, take it you will learn a lot!

I took this course online, IT'S THE WORST. The material we had in class is NOT HELPFUL for the TEST, all she did is putting links in to the modules. Modules are waste of tme. The stories in the modules are useless...A lot of memorizations.DO NOT TAKE THIS!!

I took this course online, IT'S THE WORST. The exams were way too difficult for a Gen Ed course. Modules were pointless and time consuming, not enough provided in notes for the difficulty of the exams. DO NOT TAKE.

Took the online class. LOVED it. Exams weren't too bad. The online material is fun if you make it fun. Don't get behind on the material, it'll be a pain in the butt. If you have any kind of interest in astronomy you'll probably like it. There isn't any hard science-y stuff in it. I learned a lot of cool stuff in this class. Great science gen-ed

A pretty easy course. Just needs a bit of memorization. I late added the course but that didn't affect my grade because one exam score is dropped (out of 4 exams).

Astro 001 was too difficult and time consuming for a gen ed. Class consisted of 5 exams (lowest grade dropped), completion of online quizzes, essay, and other things make this insane for a gen ed. It was not impossible but not easy at all. She was helpful when I had a problem but actually learning stuff in this class was diffucult. material sucks.
