13. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Nothing comes to mind at this time, I do believe everything was good in this class.
I cannot really think of anything I didn't like.
The variety of assignments were great. Feedback and communication was good. Grading was very well done.
Since it was an online class, it was hard to have deadlines for assignments in the middle of the week instead of the last day of the week
There was a lot of reading!
Not many people in the chat room
The only thing that I least liked about my online experience was that this was a very interesting subject, and learning it in a classroom, I feel would be a lot more fun and interesting to retain all the information. But either way I still enjoyed the class
The only thing I disliked about this course was that chapter readings were too long.
Nothing
I feel that I didn't give my all and I wish I did. If I could take this course again to make it better I would..
N/A
Nothing.
I think the hardest thing about online courses is that you can forget about them. I forgot one week, even though I've been pretty on top of every other week, just because my in person classes were getting harder and I remembered those because I actually had to go there.
14. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Posting comments on my peers forms. Reading what they had to say about the questions at hand and seeing things from there point of view.
I liked the ease of the work flow.
I liked the involvement with other students as well as the professor
It was not as hard to keep up with posts and guidelines were provided for readings.
Go at my own pace
I enjoyed learning about my history, it was very important in many ways.
The essays were unique and required analysis of the subject.
I enjoyed the discussion forums involving the entire class, it gave me the sense that we were in a physical class room.
Professor Knuuti was always very involved with the discussions. He took time to comment to posts and gave you even more details than what you would already know. He also gave many choices of topics we could discuss which made it more interesting than everyone writing about the same thing.
That I CAN push myself harder
I like the weekly forums...seeing everyones comments and what they thought from their point of view.
I like taking online classes with Professor Knuuti, he makes history interesting and I am able to retain what I learned in his classes. His class instruction has allowed me to gain a better view of just how much history has shaped present day societies around the world.
I enjoyed that it was online, I got to have the time I needed with other things going on in my life and still be able to learn my favorite subject. Having it online also pushed me to learning more.
I liked the fluid timeline and Knuuti's consistency for due dates. It was easy to follow and paced nicely.

19. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Posting comments on peers forms.
The instructor actually participated with the students, sort of felt like he was taking the class with us.
Things i liked the best were the position papers because they made you really think.
I liked how the professor grades on a point based scale rather than a percentage.
Everything that is needed is readily available
Learning how this history affects the way life is for us today, especially in America.
The format of weekly assignments / due dates worked really well.
I liked how organized the teacher was.
Online discussions.
The fact that the teacher gives you a chance do better
I like taking online classes with Professor Knuuti, he makes history interesting and I am able to retain what I learned in his classes. His class instruction has allowed me to gain a better view of just how much history has shaped present day societies around the world.
Learning our history was interesting
I liked the scheduling and the textbook. Both were easy to follow. The class comments and posts were engaging and helped me to feel a classroom forming, even though there was none.
20. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
I guess I would say, having less than a week to do tests. Or only two days in between draft and final paper, due.
None
Nothing
I did not like all the reading that we had to do as it was hard to keep up with other classes that had just as much or more reading to do.
Nothing
None.
I understand grading dozens of essays must take time, but it would have been nice to receive feedback on essay 1 before beginning essay 2, etc.
n/a

Maybe you should have your dead lines pushed back till 11 p.m. or midnight. For those who work nights, it would help out a lot.
