CRS online class

By
Real Estate Agent with Prudential Locations LLC

I've taken a couple of CRS classes and was extremely happy with them.  I need just 1 credit left to get my designation and there aren't any classes in Hawaii being offered till middle of 2007.  So I decided to take an online CRS class that will give me the credit needed.  So far I'm not all that impressed and it's nothing like I expected.  Thought it would be a video lecture with quizzes.  I was soooo wrong, it's mostly reading material with some activities and quizzes.  Pretty boring!  If I had to do it again I would just wait till next year and take the live classes.  They are soooo much better.

Let me know if anyone else feels the same way.

I got my CRB by taking the online classes.  Given that my schedule and the course schedules never seemed to jive, I simply would not have been able to get it otherwise. 

Yes, I think I expected a video lecture, and the courses were more like PowerPoint presentations.  And you how what, I think I liked the courses much better because they weren't video lectures.   After all, watching a lecture on video is definitely not the same as being there.  But I guess it all comes down to "brain fit".  The presentation needs to fit the way your brain works.

I actually made a lot of notes and did the projects.  (For example: Calculating office market share was one project.  Defining core values was another project).  I probably would not have focused on the projects as much if the presentation would have just been watching a couple suits jabber on screen. 

Tip:  When watching the course, use your "print screen" key to save pages for future reference.

I guess I'll wait till the real classes next year.  I was thinking about taking a class online too but thanks for sharing your experience.  Being there in class is always better I think.  Thanks again.

Which CRS class did you take online?  I'm thinking about taking two of them that way because, like you, there are not enough classes offered that I can attend and I'd like to have this completed this year.
