    Current Employee - Adjunct Online Instructor in Phoenix, AZ

    I have been working at University of Phoenix as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    they leave you alone and don't seem to mind when you rewrite the prepared course outlines. The proprietary software is better than most online teaching platforms (much better than Blackboard, Moodle, or D2L), and the checks arrive like clockwork. Plus they always seem to have two classes at a time for me to teach

    Cons

    the students are poorly prepared (though often eager)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't change things too much. the learn by gaming thing, the new "pick your own assignment" thing, and all of the new flashy bells and whistles aren't needed.
