Online Calculus Course for Real College Credit

There are many "Calculus Courses Online" these days. Some of them are very good. But be careful when you are searching for an online calculus course that meets your needs. Consider the following:
  • MOOCs (Coursera, edX, Khan Academy) are excellent resources, but do not offer real academic college credit from a regionally accredited university providing a real academic transcript.
  • Automated course systems: it is very popular now for schools to "offer" calculus courses that simply use a publisher's course system, which is just a multiple-choice machine to quiz you through the course. Look for the level of interaction with actual instructors.
  • Start Dates - many of the online courses offered make you wait for their next term, which may not be convenient.
  • Finish Dates - many online courses make you follow a traditional semester calendar and finish the course in 14-16 weeks.
As you may see from the other webpages on the Distance Calculus site, Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University is different! Here is a video describing some of the differences.

Courses Completed: Calculus I, Calculus II
Review: I needed to brush up on my high school calculus and finally take Calc II before starting a graduate program that needed them as prereqs. This was perfect choice to fit in that summer. Got done at fast pace that I wanted and needed. Also had added bonus of one on one feedback and help when needed. Video lessons were better than many on campus instructors in large lecture settings. Recommend for anyone needing to satisfy prereqs at home institution.

Courses Completed: Calculus II, Multivariable Calculus
Review: Fantastic courses! I barely made it through Cal 1, and halfway through Cal 2 I found this program. I took Cal 2 and then Multivariable and I just loved it! SOOOOOOO much better than a classroom+textbook class. I highly recommend!

Courses Completed: Calculus I, Calculus II
Review: I did not enjoy Calculus I at my school. I retook Calculus I, and then Calculus II, over the summer via Distance Calculus and it was awesome. I started my sophomore year back on track and ready for my physics classes. I struggled with the MathLive software but I guess it was alright.
