Do you dedicate more time to your subjects now with online classes or before when we had in-person classes?

MET Major

“I prefer in-person classes, especially being an engineering major. A lot of our classes have labs that are best learned in-person, being hands-on with equipment from the work field. Although I prefer in-person, the switch to online classes has shown me a great aspect for future jobs. The switch has shown me the ability to adapt to new requirements, and keeping the same dedication in your work from the beginning in a short period of time.”

Pre-med, Biology Major

“With online classes going on, it is a little bit harder to understand the course material easily because sometimes some professors just post the lecture slides online, and tell us to go through them. As a result of this, I tend to actually teach myself most of the course material which takes me more time to comprehend.”

MTE Major

“I dedicated more time to my studies when we were in-person.  I feel like I was more focused in class because I had a face-to-face experience with my professor and classmates. In-person classes are more dynamic and engaging. I liked being able to interact and ask questions right then and there. For me, sometimes it is harder to focus during online sessions because of a tendency to be distracted by things around me in the area I am taking class in.”

Electrical Engineering

“I dedicate more time to my in-person classes because it helps me learn a lot better than through Zoom or Microsoft Teams. Personally, when I go to my in-person classes I am more engaged in the lesson and ask questions to my instructor that I would never ask if I was taking it online. Lastly, being a visual learner is another big reason why I prefer being in-person. I have to see it to believe it and remember information better.”
