    Any fellow students enrolled at the University of Phoenix online or Axia College. If so have you had any problems using Mac's to access your class room. I notice that some times the replay link does not work; in Safari anyway I'll need to try another browser.

    An ex-girlfriend of mine was a University of Phoenix student and I believe she had to use IE for the classroom on her Mac and Thunderbird for email. That's what I remember, anyway. That was a few years ago, though. Things might have changed since then. I do remember that she spent some time on the phone with UOP tech support to find out that she needed to use those apps, so that might be your best avenue for information.

    I am a University of Phoenix graduate student...I use Thunderbird for the classroom folders and Safari for the ebooks and Resources (because Firefox will not access the ebooks properly).

    Those apps work perfectly for me! No problems here! :)

    Thanks, I'll give Thunderbird a try for the forums.

    I am curious to know what do you guys think of the classes. Do you recommend UoP?

    The classes are not bad, but you need to be prepared to do a fair amount of reading and writing papers. The biggest downside to UoP online is it's quite expensive, though so are most of the other online solutions. The forum software they use is pretty basic, looks kind of like a 1970's BBS. I'd like to see something a little more up to date and user friendly. Something like vBulletin which this forum uses. Also for what we are paying I'd like to see some streaming video of lectures. All of the classroom activity is via the forum and instructor interaction is fairly light.
