That's just a matter of a prof giving you too much time and not making the exams course-centric enough. I had one class at UMass where we had all the time in the world for online quizzes (at least it seemed that way). However, the quizzes were just there as window dressing. The real work was in the group projects. I had another class where the prof also gave us tons of time. But there it was just an easy grader. Another class I took was very time intensive for online testing, and there were 10 over the course of the class. I pushed hard to get those tests done in the required time frame and I studied for probably 6-10 hrs before taking each timed exam. That was just an example of a tough teacher. He wouldn't give me the benefit of the doubt when I finished the course with 89.93%. I respect him for it (not that I didn't try to talk him into the "A"). I'm currently developing an online class. I'm taking pains to make sure that those little undergrad slackers can't get by just googling answers and relaxing. I'm gonna make the little turkeys learn something!
