100% of students
I like how the learning environment will fit around your life. Most classes are self-paced and that makes it very easy to work ahead if you know you have a busy week coming up.
Some courses don't provide vital resources and you have to go find support elsewhere.
Everyone was engaging and the professors were quick to respond. They were also very good about updating on any needed information like office hours and such.
I would like to see more synchronous classes available, I miss the classroom vibe.
I like the variation in academics
The biggest issue that I come across is that every professor has their own format or third party software that they like to use for their classes, so now I have several accounts on different third parties for different classes. It would be nice to have the same software/formats for most, if not all classes.
Accessibility for students to do school work when it works for them, as well as being a good option for people with physical disabilities
The payment system is a little confusing.
I like how much help ASU has offered via tutoring, writing help, and helping me to pick my classes for the next terms. The professors so far have been kind and instructive. I go to school online so I just picked good for the on-campus things like food but I have in a couple of Facebook groups with on-campus students and they haven't had any complaints. There is still a feeling of community even though I go to school online and there is still help from advisors as well.
So far I haven't liked that they are upping the tuition by 2% next year but letting seniors (elderly people) take classes for cheap (I've heard for 10$ but haven't confirmed).
I like the flexibility of being able to balance it alongside work easier due to there being no live class times to attend
Not being able to take part in student life if you don't live local to the campus
