Students in Dr. Veige’s Online Section:
Study Edge will not be offering live reviews or content that is specific to your professor. Why not, you ask? Well, despite the fact that you are all taking the same MCAT/PCAT/ etc. and should therefore all be learning the same material, this class is not standardized within UF (unlike CHM2045). The professors in this class teach the same content, but in very different ways from each other. For example, some professors in CHM2210 cover all of chapter 11, while some do not. Which begs the question, do you need that material or not? If so, why aren’t all of the professors covering it to get you ready for your future? And if not, why are some spending time on this and not on other topics that are more important for your future? Can the department not agree on the best way to prepare you for your next UF course, as well as for your future job or graduate program? Or, perhaps they could agree, but haven’t made it a priority to do so? We simply don’t know.
In addition to that problem, your professor’s decision to cover material in a non-standardized manner makes it impossible for supplemental services such as Study Edge and UF’s very own Teaching Center to provide the necessary specialized content for each section of the course.
If you’d like to encourage the University to fix this problem (as it’s been fixed in CHM2045), we believe the person to talk to is the Associate Provost: Dr. Chris J. Hass.
If you are a Study Edge member, you will still be able access online chapter reviews that align to the topics in your textbook (though again, not specific to your professor), post any questions you have on the wall for this class, and come to Study Hours to get any questions answered.
Note to UF Online Students:
Even though UF says that your courses are the same as those taken by the residential students at UF, we have done the analysis to compare the classes and that’s simply not the case. Not only do you have different professors, but you also cover different material and take different exams. For your future courses (many of which will only be offered residentially), missing prerequisite knowledge now may prove detrimental. It seems hard to justify skipping over content in a UF Online course, when it’s being covered in the residential course…and vice versa.
In addition to that problem, your professor’s decision to cover material in a non-standardized manner makes it impossible for supplemental services such as Study Edge and UF’s own Teaching Center to provide the necessary specialized content for this section of the course.
If you’d like to encourage the University to fix this problem, we believe the person to talk to is the Assistant Provost: Evangeline J. Tsibris Cummings.
