Adjunct Faculty, RN-BSN program (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZ – February 20, 2013
Cons: lack of face-to-face interactions with students
The week before class started, I set up my classroom and wrote a welcome to the students. I set up boundaries and expectations, open office hours; phone number, use of rubric in grading papers, expectations for responses to discussion questions and how they would be graded.
Weekly, I would review the previous week, and write a fun statement for the – more... next weeks' assignments. I would grade their papers and participation in the discussion questions.
Depending on the day, I would sign into my class and: respond to questions; answer discussion questions and add comments which would stimulate more discussion by the students; review papers prior to final submission, offering suggestions on how to improve the paper, if needed;
The week after class ended, I would grade final assignments, compute course grades, and enter them. Grand Canyon used the ANGEL platform at the time.
The hardest part of the job was time management on my part. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the students. Since these students were in the RN to BSN program, they were already working. I was amazed at the wide variety of environments and experience the students drew on for their assignments and their point of view in the discussion questions. I loved teaching online! – less

Online Enrollment Counselor (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZ – January 11, 2013
GCU is an awesome employer with Christian values. There is nepotism and favoritism. It is a great place to work and the people who work there enjoy what they do, and the reputation of GCU is great. Hardest part of working there was the lack of any career path to follow.
