“If a student has a question and they email the professor, they get an answer right away. And a lot of times it’s more than just an answer: It’s a conversation back and forth. From an instructor’s point of view, it’s really interesting to sit back and watch those discussions grow, because a lot of times they far exceed what you would see in the classroom.” — Jennifer Doering, Adjunct Professor
