While online courses are convenient, I'm finding there is ALOT of extra work involved (more reading, more typing, learning to use the online classrooms in addition to any software you might need for a math course).
BUT! if you have the extra time and don't want to sit in a classroom for 12hrs a week, you could make it work. Even exams & finals I do online, I do not have to go into a learning center to take tests (like my dh does, he's doing online courses at a different college than I am).

It depends on what you are looking for a degree in. Certain degrees are great to do online and other ones really need the classroom. What are you thinking of going to school for?

Like Heidi said, If you can get the childcare, then I would do the classroom training (Depending on what you are going to school for)

However,if you are wanting to stay at home, then make sure you take online courses through an acredited university or college.

My dh is using Universiry of Pheonix and there is a lot of writing, essays and things for his business degree.
He is doing well in it though because they (Some instructors) put you into groups for certain products and you can have online meetings through a messenger to do the assignments.

Anyway I wish you all the best of luck!

I happily Breastfed Alba for 5 1/2 months!!!!

Below is my weightloss ticker. This is not for the pregnancy weight to come off as it has pretty much all came off. The rest of it is just what I've been wanting to loose for a while now to get back to my healthier weight!

Why not take the spring semester off, and hit a community college either next summer or next fall? Being a new mom is tough-- you've never really known what sleep deprivation is until you have a newborn. And there's so much to learn when you're a new mom... it's going to be tough to concentrate on school work.

If you get a degree from a community college, it will transfer to almost any 4 year school.

This way, you'll have at least 6 months to line up child care. The baby will be sleeping better by the time you begin. And you'll be comfortable enough with the details, like diapering and fevers, that you can enjoy the time you spend in class.

But good for you for planning to continue your education!! You won't be sorry!!
