For reference, some classes were master's level school of education, others were seminary.Same here with the exception of Finance and the Capstone Course.
1) Discussion board - I would wait until 4-5 people had posted theirs, get the general idea of what the discussion board was about, and then write my own. No reading required.
2) Tests - I'd simply control + f through the teaching to find the answers for the tests. Again, no real studying there.
3) Papers - Papers are where I actually learned and required research and effort. I actually enjoyed this part of most of my classes and it's where most of my education came.
With no teacher interaction, it was really easy to game the system.
I don't know the solution because I'm not in that world to know what the options are.

So my thought was to have her go online where the teachers had been doing it a while vs. classroom teachers doing it for the first time ever. Kind of like you should try and hold off on first year model cars so they can work out the kinks. Overall, it was good, especially since she was able to get her first 30 credit hours at Liberty paid for for only $6K.I think that's part of the issue. Personally, I learn very well in an independent setting for a majority of subjects. But learning isn't cookie cutter. LUO doesn't mix it up a lot (or at least they didn't went I went) and a lot of the activities didn't leverage modern collaboration technologies to engage the learner. The only thing I appreciated was the move toward digital and interactive texts. But again, there are a ton of learners that love physical books.
Probably, the only 2 real complaints was the very limited interaction with the instructors. It would've helped her to have zoom lessons a/d/or more or some recorded video lessons. She had 1 class where she couldn't quite understand what the instructor wanted with her papers and traded way too many emails when a video presentation or meeting probably would've made it better. The second thing from the parent perspective trying to enroll her residentially, it's foolish and frustrating how Liberty and LUO don't seem to communicate as well as they should. I don't know the rationale for that, but it's annoying to say the least.
Otherwise, I've had friends take LUO classes, who've enjoyed them greatly and loved the customer service they received from LUO as well.
