The toughest thing about traditional courses is that you must get to a physical site at specific days/times. Otherwise, there's not much difference in course load between the two. I can say that research and writing can be over-whelming in the online environment, especially to those who aren't experienced in APA style/format.

Having experienced both environments, traditional-campus courses are not any tougher. In fact, you have to be more self-motivated to participate in online courses. "Opting for online courses over traditional courses is not the easy route for your education. The flexibility of online classes can be extremely helpful to busy students, but the same freedom also creates additional pressures on those enrolled" Ericksen, 2017).
