13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
The assignments were very fun and I especially enjoyed the animation and coding section of the course. Mr. Parente is very knowledgeable in what he teaches and you can tell he enjoys what he does!
The lessons helped me develop a basic understanding of the essential aspects of media production to be successful in the design industry.
i like that i got to learn about some of the adobe programs
I liked the way we learned, Mr Parente is supper helpful and not too fast pace!
I got to experience learning in a group environment. I was interested in learning photoshop and this class appropriately taught me skills.
I like how he gave his own experiences in the subject matter that we were able to relate and understand better for future situations.
I liked how involved he was in the success of the students.
I like that the teacher has real experience in digital art field
Not sure what I liked since I ended up not being able to show up near the end but I did like the flash work because that was a program I didn't know yet so that was a major interest when there was something I didn't know.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
none
Nope! It was good!
A little more instruction in photoshop.
Give more exercises and tests to see students overall knowledge and understanding of the tools and subject matter.
I would recommend group work because in reality we're probably not gonna work alone on major elements at the end of our captured major.
15. Other comments:
Taking this course has made me want to pursuer a career in animation. Thank you!
Nope.
Steven Parente overall was an interesting teacher to have and made me want to pursue this career path.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
the assignments where fun.
This course helped get a good amount of practice into the software. It helped me advance my skills and learn how to make good art pieces.
Steven has such a broad background about his topics: that was so interesting! Also his encouragement and tips to for us on how to go on to become a professional.
I liked that there was more than one way to o thing and it was always made clear that if i made a mistake or was having trouble with something that i could just do it a different way to suite my liking.
Steven is a very talented artist and a good communicator. He also has a lot of patience.
I liked all the hands on activities. Mainly those with step by step instruction.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
More time and more in depth lectures
5 hours in a row is a pain.
No suggestions
Less oral presentation would allow twice as much time for class work and instruction.
15. Other comments:
Loved this class one of my favorites I have ever taken
I learned some very important skills for the modern digital world.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
The projects Prof. Parente had us do was effective at teaching me the Maya program. Also, Prof. Parente is very knowledgeable of the program which I think is essential to teaching this course.
The projects that we did in class were just so fun. To me, everything about 3D was interesting. It may be a lot of work, but it is overall relaxing.
Everything was good.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
None that I can think of..maybe uploading the tutorial videos on Laulima to make it easier to access them while working at home.
Pc's perhaps.
15. Other comments:
Steve is really good at making sure his students are understanding the material. Most teachers in my experience give assignments and let the students accel or fail on their own. Steve however, is good at keeping his class on the same page. Making sure that no one is too far behind, and is always thorough when helping his students.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
The content in this corse was brand new to me. I enjoyed learning it a lot.
The activities were very engaging and had me interested the whole time. I wouldn't mind taking another class with Mr. Parente.
I liked the hands on part of the course as well as the demonstrations.
I liked everything about this class besides the time it was held. I thought the projects were challenging and I felt pretty good about myself after completing each one besides the flash animation. I didn't feel like i had quite enough time to really produce the quality i know i could produce with it. That could be my fault though.
I really liked using illustrator ad photoshop, I really learned a lot from using those two programs. I can now utilize this for future reference.
the projects
I liked making the animation.
Learning about the different things in Photoshop I never knew about before and learning how to use the other programs.
As an instructor, Steve Parente was amazing. He taught well and each lecture was full of useful information. He was able to respond quickly, even on weekends, when I needed help. He went above and beyond to make sure we all understood what we came to learn. Thank you HCC for giving me the opportunity to learn from this great man.I enjoyed learning all the different things on Adobe Creative Cloud. I can not tell you which project I enjoyed the most because each new thing was fun and exciting. Every project challenged me and thrilled me at the same time.
The assignments were pertinent to the skill levels described in the course description. It was an entry level course and all material, assignments, and activities helped me to understand and learn techniques I had no previous knowledge of. I am an adamant computer enthusiast in that I use the technology to earn money outside of school. I will surely be able to use what I have learned here elsewhere.
the many things i learned and would excel at and now i can do more with a computer
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
none
Everything was well taught and everyone learned a lot and the things he taught us was well spread out throughout the semester.
Perhaps one of the earlier classes in the semester could be skipped ahead a bit so we have more time on the flash project later in the semester.
No
be more hands on
No
None
none what so ever

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I appreciated not just learning the basics of this course but learning solutions which I think is critical to know how to solve problems that will occur while working in any one of these software programs.
I feel that this course did a very good job with the time it had to teach me each program effectively. The one assignment that I enjoyed the most out of everything was the flash assignment. I am very interested in animation so this project was especially fun for me.
Using programs (Adobe series) to learn about their capabilities and purposes. Learning about programs with the same base or operational concept made learning and getting the idea much easier with the use of using online web sources.
I enjoyed the entirety of this course.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Overall I feel that this course was effective in teaching me but maybe more practice assignments as homework would help to improve the skills being taught.
summer course needs all students to be prepared and on time and following so they dont drag the class behind.

I really enjoyed this class and it taught me just what I wanted to learn.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Enjoyed everything.
I liked learning about the various computer programs offered by adobe. I had fun doing the assignments. They made me have to use the programs in creative ways to get the job done. I felt like the assignments taught me a lot about the programs.
what i liked about this course is that it teaches use what employer are looking for if in their employees
I liked learning about the different programs and all the things you can do on them.
I really enjoyed the Calendar and Personal Symbol project. I felt like it was the two projects that I could really express my creativity.
Activities were fun and instructional. The exercises, like the pen exercise, helped a lot to learn the basic skills,
I enjoyed learning and using the programs and i do feel confident of using them again
I liked that we got to actually experience creating things instead of just looking at tutorials, though those did help. I also liked how Mr. Parente went step-by-step while explaining a new tool. I also liked how this course provided a range of different adobe apps so we got to try a little bit of everything.
i enjoyed the different programs and i also enjoyed making videos and animations this class is awesome
I appreciated peer evaluations of assignments. I learned a lot from what others were doing on their projects and got to see my own projects through someone else's eyes.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Keep doing what is being done.
i have no suggestion on improving this course it was well organized
If we spent an even amount of time on each program. We kind of spend through Flash and I would have liked to learn more in Photoshop as well. Also if Professor Parente would slow a little down when explaining important parts of the program. At times it was easy to get lost...
Perhaps go into more detail about how to use certain tools in adobe illustrator. The pen tool was a little difficult to use at first.
As you know, fitting 4 software programs into the semester was challenging. It was nice to have an introduction to Dreamweaver, but then we barely had time for Flash. Probably not a way to solve this problem, but advanced courses on these programs would be valuable.
stick to the subject at hand
No
more time on the programs
Encourage students to help one another more.
15. Other comments:
Excellent instructor! Fun projects Learned alot

I enjoyed this class very much.
Overall good class, I am glad that I enrolled in this course.
I think your emphasis on job related skills was useful for students.
Loved the class although i wish there where more day during the week. The corse really went by quickly
Overall it was a great class and I feel like I've learned a lot.
he is an awesome teacher and i enjoyed his teaching

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I enjoyed the projects and activities, I liked the projects more based on self expression or sharing.
I enjoyed learning all these design programs that I have been wanting to learn for so long. I am very happy to finally know a bit about each.
all is good
The friendly environment made it easy to ask questions and learn. The different projects helped me learn various programs in a timely matter.
Each assignment was entertaining and just really fun, I learned each program thoroughly in the time given and now have all this background info for the future. It was worth it. The teacher was always willing to help and make sure that EACH person understood the material.
I really liked that we went over all of the basics in every program to help us learn how to make use of all the programs and expand our skills and knowledge. Steven is a really kind and helpful teacher and I felt really motivated with his help.
Yes, the projects were exciting and fun.
The programs were fun and interesting to learn.
very nice
everything except the website
The assignments themselves are well-presented and allow a great opportunity to complete the work and become familiar with the programs. At the same time they are open ended enough to allow for a huge amount of creativity on the part of students.
Hands-on experience was very useful.
Steve really helped me get to know the different programs and made time for me.
I liked how Steve related his own real-life work experience in the art industry to the course.
Actively using the programs we are learning to create and complete assignments.
I liked how knowledgeable Steve is and appreciated all the examples he gave and how well he was able to explain each program. Steve presented us with a number of resources to look up, on top of the materials available in the lab.
this was one of the best courses i've taken since starting school. i learned a variety of skills thanks to the instructor. lab hours made it easy to catch up and practice techniques. mahalo.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Since we are making a website in the end it would be good to suggest to have an over all theme or make it more pertaining to something we do with outlives so that we can not just show our art work we ve done but show something more, making the website more effective and useful for future use.
Perhaps a clearer lecture would be appropriate; sometimes lecture could be very slow, and go in circles.
Maybe have a book or better handouts for the class.
Maybe have more mini projects, things that take a class period rather than three.
Requiring that students have good computer knowledge before registering for this class because otherwise the students that don't know anything about how to use the computers really disrupt the class.
I can't really think of any right now.
keep it up
take out the website
TA's would be nice to have. Although they weren't a lot of people in the class a 1/11 teacher to student ratio is kinda bad when several people need help
A more strict and rigorous grading system. I noticed some people obviously spent little to no effort on their projects and are actually much more skilled and talented normally but they got full credit and very little criticism.
None
Stress the need of using Open Lab hours to complete assignments on time if one does not have a computer at home that can run the Adobe programs. State and repeat clear deadlines for projects so we can move on to the next part of the course on time and not have to rush at the end of the semester.
15. Other comments:
Steve is a really nice guy, and knows his stuff.
An awesomely awesome class. Worth taking.
Steve was a really good teacher and wish him the best
It was a a very fun course.
fun class
i liked the class
Learned a lot! Mahalo, Steve!!
I really enjoyed this semester with Steve and learned alot
There was a very disruptive classmate during the first half of the semester. She made everyone uncomfortable, and I was extremely glad she stopped coming. We all have an equal amount of problems, and exceptions should not be made for one single person who throws tantrums during our class time. Tutors and Student help is provided freely by both UH and HCC. There is no excuse for her attitude.
The only thing I would have to suggest would be more open lab hours. I understand that with the classes also being held in the lab that it would be hard to do, and I am grateful that it is even available to us students. That would be my only suggestion for now, is more open lab time.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
All the projects and assignments were very useful and enjoyable!
I enjoyed all of the projects we did.
My favorite assignments were the illustrator and flash assignments.
It gave me more knowledge of the other adobe aplications
The assignments were intresting, they taught the baisic points of the class and programs we were supposed to use.
Getting to use Dreamweaver to create our own website.
needs more variety in techniques of adobe ps, ai and flash.
I enjoyed the project based learning, and artistic freedom we had in class.
I enjoyed the course material. Each program lead us to the next and gave the class the flow needed to achieve a basic understanding of all the programs.
i loved learning about all the different adobe programs and what you could do with them.
Assignments that were given challenged me as a student, but were not overwhelming. All of the projects that we did were fun, and a good way to get the student to learn the program that we were working on.
During the semester of taking this course I enjoyed everything!
i liked leaning the different techniques in the assorted adobe programs.
I really liked using adobe flash because i now know how to do some animation and i think that the fish animation, the bouncing ball animation and the signature animation was really cool and fun to do.
how i learn so much in a little amount of time
I appreciated the timeline of the coursework. The time given to effectively work on each project were great. The exercises for each program were very helpful in repetition of essential gestures to increase workflow.
I liked the projects. They were hard but it was cool.
Thanx for sharing your knowledge! Very much appreciated ;)
It was very interactive and I liked that everyone had really nice work. I think the instructor encouraged us to do what our interests were so it came out well.
The assignments were fairly demanding, yet easy. I found this class to be very time consuming but for the better. I liked the fact we had quality machines and tools to work with.
The diversity of the programs we got overviews of is fantastic, unfortunately some of them are not the most current versions, which I think is important because in the digital media industry, one should be familiar with the most updated programs being used by professionals.
I liked that this course was really hands-on. The projects and assignments were very engaging and allowed me to express my creativity and individuality. For most of the projects, we were given options, and this is something I personally enjoyed.
I liked the personality in out assignments as well as the creative freedom we were given in regards to the assignments
I really enjoyed the adobe illustrator and photoshop parts of the projects.
They were planned out perfect.
The course was very educational, and I really felt like I learned a lot. I became comfortable with the programs, and enjoyed learning about them. The assignments were all also very fun. I liked the flash animation the best out of all the projects.
It was a class that gave me more respect for the programmers.
Flash and Illustrator.
The references to other artists past and present was great. Very inspiring. I heartily recommend this class. I liked all the assignments. The other students in the class also did beautiful work. I had a hard time with some things and Steve was very patient and helpful.
I enjoyed doing all the assignments. They were fun which made them really easy to accomplish.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
It was taught very well! Was very organized, interactive, and I had enough time to finish all assignments and projects.
N/A
None that I can think of! ( :
none whatsoever
For a beginning class it was okay, but I still believe we could have touched on a lot more in the time we had. I don't think we really learned the programs to their fullest extent.
Critiques need to be more technical.
I think it might be helpful if Mr. Parente explained how to do things in each program faster and then repeated himself. this would allow the more advanced students to proceed., so they dont miss something they need to understand while they wait for others.
steven parente could be more sensitive to peoples need for help.
I have no suggestions, other than to do exactly the same thing and to keep teaching!! I am grateful, and Im sure others are as well, for the chance to learn something new.
I don't have any suggestions
nothang
Having a stricter critique protocol. I know many people do not like to speak negative about other people's work, though in the art area it is something extremely helpful. Maybe having the person next to the presenter should say a few plus' and minus' about his or her neighbor's design would suffice. I also feel that the adobe website tutorials, though very through, don't give the same learning impact as in-class demonstrations and practice files
No suggestions.
Not at this time.
No more flash and more video/photo assignments.
Update the Adobe Suite to the latest version and make sure the laptops that the lab has for student check-out are also included in renewing and updating the license agreement. Also, get more laptops and make it known to students who cannot come to the open lab hours that they have a laptop for assignments.
One suggestion is to provide students with more course materials.
Have Powerpoint presentations of examples of good work using each program pre-prepared for classes. Make handouts with URLs of links to examples of great graphics sites shown in class.
none
Try your best not to slack off and have fun.
More time one one program, rather than a shotgun course in Adobe.
Sometimes there's so many questions it seems like there's too many people in the class.
15. Other comments:
Steven Parente is a great teacher. All the Adobe programs I learned in his class will come in handy someday.
I found the swimming fish assignment pretty hard. My fish's tail was not separate from it's body so it almost looked broken while swimming. Other than that, everything seemed pretty fun!
Making buttons was fun, it was really nice of Steve Parente to share his machine with us!
Steve, don't go so fast.
i enjoyed being in art 112 very much and learned a great deal about adobe programs. it was a wonderful experience.
This was my first time being enrolled in a Digital Media Arts class and Im glad that I tried something new and different. Especially since I am not a DMA major but a Hawaii Life Styles-Lawai'a major. I liked being able to learn new artistic ways of expressing myself as well as of the different types of available careers that these programs are used for everyday, such as logos and movies. As we were taught each program I liked something about each one. From being able to manipulate colors, shapes, and sizes, to seeing my own designs and animations come alive right before my very eyes. In taking this class I found that I could do things that I was never able to do before, which gave me a new sense of confidence that I can proudly say this class contributed to!
I really enjoyed taking up this class and this is one of my favorite classes that i took this semester.
This class was hard for me.
Thank You for offering this course AND more! Look forward to learning more...
It was fun.
Parente is a great teacher who really attends to each students level of familiarity with using the programs, he works hard to make sure that all the students are equally equipped to use the programs.
Although my attendance looked good in this course, I disliked the fact that our attendance accounted for 35% of our grade. I believe that attendance should not play such a big weight in the grading. When we have work days, I personally would like to work out of class, and I feel that I can do more in that way.
Having a DMA tutor available during class times would help with individual students needing assistance, it was difficult for the teacher to spread his time out to all those needing help sometimes. Maybe because the class size was large?
great class.
The projectors we used were to dark, inaccurate color for this type of class. The students could not see how good each others work looked. They all look dark and dreary compared to the monitors.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
The projects were fun to do i learnd alot of cool shortcuts in class and I would do it again.
I learn many techniques that made each work easier.
WORKING WITH THE ADOBE FAMILY PROGRAMS!
I liked the rate Steven provided through the course of the semester: the activities were fun and challenging. He helped me understand what pace would be best to succeed in his class. With my busy schedule that was very helpful in helping me excel in my learning of the course work and succeeding with the projects and assignments he had the class do.
I enjoyed all of the activities and projects that were hands-on, that helped me develop a more full understanding of Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash and Dreamweaver. I loved working with my own photos, and my imagination to create artwork that I am very proud to call my own. Steve was an integral part of this process, as every time I hit a wall, he guided me back to the path.
i think it was all very well thought out and planed
very knowledgeable about the computer programs. good teacher
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
More days and hours. Two days a week time is too short to learn many different computer programs.
he could have stayed in photoshop longer so other people could learn more about it, it is a fun system to play with.
I think Steven has fine tuned this class. I wouldn't change a thing.
Steve Parente seems to have a grasp for what his students need, and he is able to perform in all aspects of design. I can't think of any suggestions for improvement.
nothing
He could do a more detailed step by step teaching in his Introduction class. He should teach slower and make sure everybody is with him, other than go fast and have to go individually help all the people that were lost. He definitely went too fast sometimes and was kind of impatient latter. But he is a good person and teacher just need to understand that a introduction class is hard.

the overall class was fun and i am happy i took this class.
PARENTE IS A LAID BACK KIND OF GUY,FREAT TO WORK WITH AND ALWAYS WILLING TO HELP YOU WITH YOU WORK:)
Steven Parente is a great teacher: well adverse with the knowledge of adobe systems/apps and other web/computer information. I learned so much within the class time/semester I am amazed and didn't feel overwhelmed while in the class but was challenged every step of the way. Thank you for helping me get ahead. I look forward to continuing my education with the hopes of having more instructors like you.
Thanks Steve! It has been a pleasure making graphic graphix, and artistic nudes in your class. Thank you for being so open and helpful during the process.
because of how much i enjoyed this class i've decided to go further in media art

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
The assignments were laid out for each program what we used. The step by step scripts were helpful although there were shortcuts which were not duly explained so that when I worked directly from the script, I got stuck.
I like that he didn't have a "set" deadline for our projects! I liked that I got to experience the Adobe Illustrator and Photo Shop Programs..they seem to be my favorites! =) I did not favor so much the Flash and Dreamweaver Program.
I really enjoyed this course, Steve is a great teacher. I liked that there wasnt very much "homework" , he gave us plenty time to do our assignments in class. This made it easy for me, since i didnt have any of the digital arts programs at home. I also liked that he covered a lot of topics , even though we had to rush through a few concepts, we got them all down. I liked how Steve showed the class some of his art that he did for people , it showed us that there are jobs out there for these skills.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Sometimes, there was too much talk which left me wondering where the lesson was going. Beginners don't need to know all the fine details of programming. Identify what we are going to do? Show examples. Create a step by step script on how to do it. Demonstrate. Give us a simple task to work on our own using the script that was given.
Maybe just jumping in and getting to the project assignment. I felt that there were delays here and there when trying to complete task or examples of some of the projects.
It was a pretty great course, actually
I want to take this next level of this class if there is one...
15. Other comments:
Very professional means of running the class. Always willing to help. Thanks. The student aide was great!!
Overall, Mr. Parente is a great instructor! He is somone when approached with a question, he takes the time to answer or encourage more to it. I liked that he took time to help me with what ever I didn't understand and encourage/motivated me to do more than the expected. I would take more classes from him in the future. =)

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I liked the projects alot. I thought they were very basic which is exactly what an intro course should have.
I never used the programs before and I literally learned from scratch how to make the animation, which was challenching but also very fun.
Steven Parente teaching methods was very interesting and i obtained allot of information on how to use Maya. I am looking forward to the next semester of this course and any future classes with mr. Parente
It was interesting drawing out the 2D picture and turning into 3D form for poipounder and robot project, and messing around with the tangents to get the correct timing for the bouncing ball project.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Shorten the class time! Its too bloody long.
No other suggestions rather than thinking up new assingments for future students. I like the course as of now.
The only thing i would recommend, is to have structured lab hour sessions. Many times i tried to get into the class when it was empty, only to find the door locked and lights off. I was hoping to get in here to work on some of my projects, but no one was here to help me or open the door to the lab.
15. Other comments:
A semester isn't really enough time to learn the basics, so I'm glad there are higher classes to take for 3-D animation.
I really appreciate and enjoyed this class.
