    How did taking our OSS course affect your future decisions to enroll in ONLINE courses? OSS Successful (N = 12)

    • Confident it would be a good experience. Convenient to meet personal schedule. I encourage other students to try an online course. I think online courses are a little more work. They require closer attention to absorbing and understanding material. Could be my audio learning style is best in a classroom. But an online visual approach is very workable. Instructors are good at making the format work.

    • I did not take the class to learn how to take an online class. I took it for extra units. I already knew how to take an online class so it did not affect my decisions in taking future online classes.

    • I had already made the decision that I wanted to take online classes before enrolling in OSS. The OSS course gave me the confidence, and the knowledge (about the technology) that I needed to successfully take online classes. The only I really wasn't prepared for was how the online classes are just as if not harder than traditional classes. That was not the fault of the OSS, but my own mind not wanting to believe it. I know that if I had not have taken the OSS course I would have dropped out of all of my online (and other distance learning) courses. The class in my opinion, should be a required prerequisite. for all students trying to take online classes.

    • I want all of my classes to be online.

    • I would take an online class again because I learned a lot from our OSS class. It gave me the confidence to take future online classes.

    • It encouraged me to continue taking on-line [sic] classes.

    • It gave me the confidence and skills to succeed in future online classes.

    • It gave me the confidence to enroll in other online classes.

    • It made me not so nervous to take online classes and so I will take more.

    • Reminded me that its difficult to rely on others for group assignments, especially when not in person =/

    • Taking the OSS course made me much more aware of how important the "online personality" of the instructor is (i.e., his/her degree of organization, technical skills, creativity, decisions regarding makeup and processes of groups, follow through and flow of assignments, and timeliness of individual contact with students).
