Here are the best online college chemistry
courses! Hi I am Cliff Gottlieb and have
been a chemistry professor at
When you take one of my online classes, you get notes written for student understanding (not textbook jargon), , links to excellent other websites, and the most attentive online instructor period! During the week and on most weekends your question will be answered no later than the next day and most of the time within 12 hours. I am planning to add audio/video files of me lecturing using the notes online for those who like the extra modality of hearing. If you are organized, try one of my online classes.
You may wish to check out your learning styles by taking a very short survey at www.vark-learn.com and you should score medium to high on the read/write style and the visual style to have a better chance at doing well in an online course.
