I'm currently enrolled in a masters program through ACE, (American College of Education) which is all online. Each course is 5 weeks long and consists of: one weekly quiz one weekly assignment (about 3 to 6 pages average) 4 or 5 article readings 1 or 2 videos mandatory participation in discussion forums (1 original post with a reference and 2 replies) The fifth week is more intense as we have to take a 20-question multiple choice test from what we learned all the previous weeks. The good thing is that you can access all the information while taking the test and there is a 3-hour time limit. The first week was a little confusing because this is an online class and there are deadlines. A paper or post cannot be done after the deadline. The system won't let you turn it in. So far, it’s been very convenient. I love it. I can work on it at any time. It is also one of the most affordable online colleges I've found.
