Considering a "Distance Learning" program for Inte

I have a question. I’m considering a “distance learning” program, but I’m not sure if it’s really worth it. I would love to attend an acredited college such as San Francisco, but it’s just not possible right now. In the mean time, I’ve taken some classes at the local junior college and they are just awful! I’m learning more from the assigned text books than from the instructors, (ps: I wasn’t expecting much from the JC classes in the first place, but this is awful). Sorry, kinda frustrated at this point. :confused:

So my questions are: Has anyone taken distance learning courses? Would you then recommend or discourage someone from taking them? What should I be looking for in a GOOD program?

Thanks in advance for any and all responses!
