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: The course was intense and required a lot of hard work. Professors ready available to assist when needed. Professors presented and explained materials/course work in detail and provided explanations and resources.

Review: Pros: once you get going, you can go really fast. The visual textbook is pretty cool. The instructors were very responsive. Cons: the movies are great, but the software crashes more than it should. Sometimes it is just a hassle doing things in the software instead of on paper, but once I got used to the software, it was ok.

Review: I highly recommend this course! Dr. Curtis is the best teacher and is ALWAYS willing to work with you to make sure you understand the subject. It was definitely a positive experience and the credits were transferred to my University with no problems! I definitely do not regret it and I had doubts in the beginning but if I had to, I would do it all over again!
