"I liked how I could manage my time to study, without the pressure of finishing one module at a specific time. The facilitator was helpful, even when the course was difficult for me and I sent her a lot of questions, she still managed to reply with explanations, breaking things down step-by-step. The chat with the student support was a big help!! They're always polite and professional!!!"
- C.P., Kennesaw State University
"I was able to work around my schedule, at my convenience. I didn't have to go anywhere for class - if I wanted to study in my jammies, I did! The rare occasion that I needed assistance with anything, it was readily available. It was a great experience that I would recommend for any "Non-traditional" student as myself and I would happily take further classes from ed2go."

"Both of my facilitators were excellent! When I had a question, I received a response the same day. I received calls from my counselor and really had good visits. I was encouraged and told that I could do this. I needed about a month extension, and I got 6 more months – for FREE! Of course, I didn't take the 6 more months, but there was no pressure to finish. Thanks."
