Can I get the same quality from HBCU online classes as in-person ones?

Just feeling a bit anxious here, guys. Planning on taking some online classes from an HBCU because of personal scheduling issues. But I'm worried; does anyone know if the quality of online classes matches up with the on-campus classes at HBCUs?

Absolutely understand your concerns—it's normal to feel anxious about making sure you get the best education possible. My child faced a similar decision and opted for online classes at one point. From what we've seen, HBCUs are committed to providing quality education regardless of the medium. They're increasingly investing in online education, which includes training professors to effectively deliver classes online and making use of technology to foster interaction. While the format is different, the essence of the learning outcomes can indeed be comparable.

However, it's essential to ensure that you have a good space where you can focus on your studies and actively participate in the online sessions. Remember, the key is staying engaged and taking advantage of the resources provided. Also, don't hesitate to reach out to the professors or support services if you need help. They're there to ensure your success, whether it's in a lecture hall or through your computer screen.
