I was drawn to the convenience of SAU’s fully online program, but I didn’t really know what to expect in terms of the online learning environment. I quickly realized how much I had to learn, but I also found that SAU had anticipated what I needed to know and geared the introductory course around getting comfortable with online learning. I love the flexibility of an online program, where I can access online discussions and complete assignments when it’s most convenient for me, around my full-time job as a grant writer and my family responsibilities, with two school-aged children.
