Online Calculus 1 Course for Academic CreditIn searching for a real Calculus I course for academic credit, you may find lots of different sites running around the internet offering "Calculus I".
Most sites like Coursera, Udemy, MITx, and edX are wonderful programs, but they do not offer real academic credits. Some claim to offer "ACE Exam Credit" but that is an exam-based (partial) credit system that is not universally accepted by all colleges and universities - some might, most won't.
There are a handful of colleges and universities that do offer Calculus I for credit online. But if you did deeper into these courses, you will find usually that:
- Courses only start on regular semester start dates
- Courses follow a strict deadline structure
- Courses use a "Course System", usually from a textbook publisher, where the system is mainly just a multiple-choice quizzing system.

Review: Course was good and fast. I don't like math so I can't say it was fun or anything. Grader was very nice. Software was ok.

Courses Completed: Calculus I, Calculus II
Review: Awesome classes! I was really weak with Calculus, so I retook Calc 1 and kept going into Calc 2. I feel like I finally understood Calculus. The finals were pretty thorough, but not nearly as stressful as the blue book exams. I highly recommend these courses!
