Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The workload for online classes is moderate. The most work consist of reading. There is a lot of reading, but it is spread out over a weeks time. Makes it easy to accomplish when you only have to worry about a week at a time.
People that have similar interest and join some of the forums. The professors though keep in close contact with the students to make sure they are doing ok and see if they need any help. Very friendly environment.

Advice for students:
The registration process is easy and they help you along the way and even walk you through it if you need help. The relationship with the professor and the other students all depends on you. It all goes on how much you communicate.
