i graduated with my masters a little over 2 years ago. i was also very against b’s, and even a-‘s. i would ask to do extra credit to get my grade up and work extra hard. now that i’m out of school, i know that the grades don’t matter! as long as you pass, you’re fine! it’s just one class, don’t stress over it.

oh i wish i knew this years ago!

I can see the frustration, trust me I have been there! Group projects are actually pretty common with online classes, I have them in both classes I have online this semester.  Maybe you should email the teacher with some of your frustrations and see what he says.  You’d be surprised how cooperative some can be.  Hopefully your school does teacher assessments at the end of the semester, so you can put in all the problems that you had.

Unfortunately, not much recourse that I can see, which is the most frustrating part!!

I understand how you feel, you might want to reconsider this particular course because assignments should never be given just one week in advance, that’s completely unacceptable.

If there isn’t a comprehensible syllabus or if your teach can’t tell you what’s on the list of assignments for the next month that’s just not poor teaching, that’s academic irresponsibility on their part. You need to know what your objectives in the class are, so you also need to know what assignments need to be completed in order to meet those goals.
