More wired than a Roman Internet café
Pardon me but this Robert Welch University doesn't look viable in any way shape or form. But I probably should not need to point out Socrates' opinion on these matters "who needs teachers and who resorts to them?" My answer: the ignorant.
More important than having a distance learning class for Latin and Greek, what one needs to do is sit down with Greek and Latin texts, a Lexicon or Dictionary, and a reference grammar and spend as much time as you can learning it, maybe 10 to 12 hours per day on the days that you have time. As Heidegger once remarked: 'Time the very thing life is made of, and the very thing we're running out of.' It's 90% persperation and 10% inspriation.
In other words, you have to put the time in. It's all a question of time and how much you put into it. Once you learned the basics, i.e. Latin and Greek 101, you don't need any teacher, let alone any total fraud like Robert Welch University. These kinds of places, like all universities really, are about bilking you for as much as they possibly can, imparting a 'program' into your mind, usually trafficked under the name of 'western cannon,' and assulting your family wealth.
Just face the fact that you have to put the time in yourself, and forget the sophists. I shouldn't have to tell any classics major, but I repeat it: forget the sophists, do it yourself. 'those who can do, those who can't teach.' And that's a fact jack! And it's as true now as it ever was. They teach what they don't know. 'Know it thy self,' saith Thales.
Does Robert Welch University still offer these courses? I have not been able to find the full catalog online. I am interested in taking a distance intro to Attic Greek. I have done some studying on my own but would benefit from a course. I work full time and have other responsibilities so the format of a self-paced class where I can watch the lectures and send in questions would work best for me.
