Degree of Difficulty at Full Sail University Online
Cordell says of the program he took at Full Sail that it “was not easy.” He failed a few courses in his time at Full Sail and at one point wasn’t sure that he was going to graduate. Due to the limit on courses, you can fail and still graduate, Cordell was nervous. He had to retake at least 3 classes in throughout his time there. But Cordell was a first-time coder with no previous experience. So, that could have added to his early struggles with classes. But Cordell dedicated his time to turn his grades around and ended up graduating at the top of his class. So, he says if you’re willing to dedicate a lot of time to learn the class material, you can also do well in a Full Sail University online program.
Overall Experience at Full Sail University Online
About his overall experience in a Full Sail University online program, Cordell says,
“First of all let me just say that if you think online would be easier and you’ll be able to graduate quicker than the normal college student… that is a terrible way of thinking.”
Cordell goes on to list a few of the downfalls of his online experience. He says that the internet is a constant distraction while taking online classes, so it is important to set time aside to focus on your work. Browsing YouTube and other social sites can be a huge time suck and take away from your learning. Due to the fast-paced nature of online college, you have to stay on top of your work. Cordell says that assignments can quickly roll into each other and you can get way behind if you procrastinate. Another key to success in an online program according to Cordell is communication with your instructors and online tutors.
What to Expect in a Web Development Program at Full Sail University Online
Cordell says by the end of the program you will be able to build an app and/or website from scratch. The program started off teaching the students C-sharp. Cordell says his C-sharp course was the hardest he took in his time there, but it was also his first course, so that could be why. Eventually, you’ll learn HTML, CSS, Java Script, jQuery, react, react native, API, PHP, my sequel databases, as well as Mongo DB and much more. With this degree, you’ll be able to apply for full-stack development jobs and give yourself a good chance to get hired.
