My AIU EXPERIENCEE
My experience with the AIU online education has been very
unique as this was my first opportunity of following an academic program
online. Moreover the uniqueness of the course was the fact that I led the
development of my course curriculum that was specifically designed to meet my
needs in acquiring the knowledge and skills that I lacked and was required for
the Doctorate in Healthcare Administration. In addition it gives me the act of
ownership and my active participation in the entire process.
Initially, I had the fear that it will not be very
interactive as compared to taught courses. However there is no significant
difference as I had access to all resources required for the course and
interacted with AIU Faculty and staff on a regular basis. The course Tutor and
Advisor were very responsive to my academic needs. The rate at which they gave
feedback on assignment was amazing. I looked forward to my grades with
excitement as I knew whenever I opened my student page I will get feedback on
the previous assignment sent. The prompt responsiveness of my tutor and advisor
gave me the impetus to systematically progress with the course. One major
instance was the provision of video recordings when I had internet challenges
for over two weeks and was unable to access the online library.
The overarching uniqueness of the course was that the tuition
fee was relatively affordable and the payment plan was well organized in a way
that I can meet other family commitments at the same time support the cost of
achieving my academic goal. I was very thrilled that AIU supported by course
fees with a partial scholarship, which also motivated me to stay committed in
sending my monthly tuition fees.
Overall, I enjoyed following the program and I learnt a lot.
I would not hesitate recommending AIU to people in this part on the Globe
