Q

When will math classes be taught by teachers again?

I'm tired of this Hawkers online learning, and I think we need a class with a real instructor. Learning math on a computer really lacks the human element that is so direly needed for myself and others to learn this difficult work.

Answer

All classes whether taught online or on campus in a computer lab have a “real instructor” who is more than happy to answer any questions a student has.  The student is responsible for asking for help whenever they need it.  If the question is directed more towards the developmental math courses that we are teaching with software in a computer lab, you should know that the Arkansas State Legislature has passed legislation requiring us to teach these courses using alternative methods.  This means that they will not be taught in a lecture classroom type setting for the time being.  We do our best to choose proven products that help students learn and increase their math knowledge thereby enabling them to score better on the standardized placement tests that most colleges use.  The proven way to do this is to place the responsibility for learning the subject matter more heavily on the student with the instructor serving as a facilitator rather than a lecturer.  If the questioner needs an instructor on hand to help with learning, I would recommend that he not take online classes but stick to the on campus variety and to not be afraid to ask for help.
