What is the Best Online Calculus Course - Distance Calculus

There are many online Calculus course options on the internet currently. They basically separate into the following 3 categories:
  • Free MOOC Courses
    These are courses that are offered for free (or nearly so), but they do not offer academic credit for the courses. Some of these courses are awesome and are an excellent resource for the student enrolled in a for-credit online Calculus course.
  • Publisher Courseware
    Many academic textbook publishers offer multiple-choice based "course systems" where you take the Calculus course by getting a login to their system (which is the same for multiple schools, but the logos at the top are different), and you engage the course via endless multiple choice quizzes - reading their online textbook, doing problems by hand, choosing multiple choice options.
    If you like this kind of course, then you have many options in taking such courses. We, personally, feel these course systems are cold, boring, and monotonous.
  • Mastery Learning & Human Interation & Computer Algebra Software
    These types of courses are our favorites, of course, because that's what Distance Calculus is modeled on. Other great courses using this type of system are NetMath from University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana.
Here are some videos to explore our Calculus courses from Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University. We will leave it up to you to decide which online calculus course is best!

Review: I found out from my MBA program that I needed to finish calculus before starting the MBA. They told me 3 weeks before term started! I was able to finish Applied Calculus from Distance Calculus. Definitely a great class. Thanks Distance Calculus!

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.
