This week I just finished up 2 of the 4 courses I'm taking this quarter: American Sign Language I and OS Scripting. RIT's 10-week quarters are short enough, but 5-week condensed courses are insane, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
Online courses are insane too, merely due to the communication challenges they present: in one of 2 online courses I'm taking this quarter I am having trouble with my Intro: Database & Data Modeling instructor who seems to drag his feet to help his students learn the material in the course. He is under the impression that he is not allowed to meet with on-campus students during the online course since it would defeat the purpose of his so-called "anytime, anywhere learning" and would be unfair to the other students who cannot come to campus.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but the students of the college are the customers purchasing a service that RIT is providing to them through the instructors. Not the other way around.
