    NWCU actually has chats weekly--both video and in chatrooms
    with the professors. It is not mandatory, though. If you have
    somewhere to be, you don't have to participate. There are
    always at least a dozen students in the chats I have
    participated in since I have been a student.

    They have been around just as long if not longer than Taft. I
    think Taft and NWCU are the best bets for the price. If money
    is not an option, though, go to Concord (it has lots of bells
    and whistles).
