So, it's inevitable to procrastinate when taking an asynchronous course? Why do people take these classes then?
It all depends on someone's work ethic. These classes work for some, but not others. A student can still succeed in any class, regardless of its format2.
I'd argue it's just not worth the effort.
Aight. Can I go back to my room now?
