How effective do you think the learning model at schools like SNHU (and also UoP, Walden, Capella, etc.) really is? What I mean is, these schools tend to have you do discussion board essays and replies for almost every type of class. I also hear that the professors don't really teach, they are just there to answer questions. Is this really an effective way to actually learn something? If you've gone to one of these schools, did you learn from the classes? I had initially looked in to SNHU but decided to go to ASU online instead because - (1) the professors and curriculum are the same as for on-campus students and (2) it has traditional lectures, exams, etc. It feels more like the brick & mortar schools that I went to right out of high school so many years ago.
