The program and faculty are great, but virtual delivery was a nightmare. MyCanvas took a long time to figure out and not all professors even use it! I was given a timetable but I didn't know if class was going to be live/online or if I would be getting pre-recorded lectures ahead of time. I know from last year's experience that this is normally an excellent program. I just wish Mohawk would figure out online learning because it's negatively affecting the overall learning experience. If you're a Mohawk student struggling with the online experience, please email the dean in charge of academic quality to have your voice heard: [email protected]
