Here are the best online college chemistry courses! Hi I am Cliff Gottlieb and have been a chemistry professor at Shasta College since 1984.  I have been a pioneer in science education and online college chemistry, having received numerous grants.  Shasta College is located in Redding, California which is in the far northern part of the state in the shadow of Mount Lassen and Mount ShastaShasta College is a public 2 year community college, fully accredited in higher education by WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges). We offer a high quality personal learning experience that is surprisingly inexpensive even to folks outside of California.

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.
