18. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I liked all of the aspects. It was an interesting class to take and very informative.
Power Pt. presentations Cut and pasting the hmwk!
I really like the power points with step by step instructions for make and using a database
The simpleness.
I liked the assignments that we were assigned because it helped me learn more.
Learning the material
The different forms of communicating information in the class is great. I never had to make an appointment outside of class. However, both online and in class options were made available. The presentation of the course material is excellent. Easy to follow the lecture and the book. Review days were convenient. Also, if I had a question or needed further explanation for the assignments, they were addressed promptly.
I liked the final group project the best. We could come up with whatever database we had wanted to and then present it. I really enjoyed working on that assignment.
I felt the course was well presented and provided a lot of information on the subject.
Online option
Being able to take this class as an online option was the best, because it opened up my schedule and allowed me to work at my own pace. Even though I worked through Laulima, the resources were extremely helpful.
19. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
None.
learning about normalization
the confusing use of SQL statements
Nothing comes to mind.
I didn't really like the project at the end
none
I liked his presentations, but the only thing that could be improved in this aspect is for Albritton to fluently explain the topic. He would question himself every now and then in almost all of his presentations. Other than that, it was good.
The only realy problem during the course was that the computers would crash a lot.
None
The textbook was not released when the semester began, but I'm glad we were able to work with the newest textbook material for this course. If the textbook was not available online, there might have been some issues getting the textbook late, but that was not a problem for me.
20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
The computers would always crash atlas 2 or 3 times a class which made things frustrating at times.
New or improved computers in the computer lab. If the computers would crash less it would be easier to follow along in the class.
The harder assignments should be given on Friday. This way there is more time to work on them during the weekend.
Nothing really, everything was pretty straight forward.
Midterm, cumulative/assessment test/assignment to ensure students are on track.
He could improved his presentations verbally with more practice. He could also accept email, he did not like to nor did he want to receive email from his students.
It could be improved with fixing the crashes.
Everything was played out from the beginning
Assignment instructions could have been expanded on. Sometimes the questions from the textbook are a little unclear, so further instructions and details would have been helpful on assignment postings on Laulima.
21. Other comments:
Mr. Albritton is fair, helpful, and made the course very interesting.
This class was awesome! I like how straight forward the class was.
Excellent teacher
Great class. I learned a lot. Excited to take more database classes with programming. Instructor is very knowledgeable, approachable, and helpful.
I covered all of my concerns in the sections above this one. Good instructor, he could be better with more practice.

18. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I like learning JOptionPane. I gained more experience in use of exception handling. String and Integer validation.
Online
He makes the course and learning interesting
Very organized.
This course was really tough! They should renumber this to be ICS 411 instead of 211. Nonetheless, the high level of rigor was good considering I'll need these skills to make the big bucks making apps.
I like how organized the resources are for this class.
Organized; answers aren't just laid out, students really have to think
The examples really helped out a lot
I enjoy computer programming in general so any new information we learned about programming was something I enjoyed.
Really makes you think about the programs you have to write.
I enjoyed the structure of the course the most. It doesn't punish you severely for turning in an assignment late or needing to re-do it which is helpful to the process of learning and understanding programming where revision is sometimes necessary to get things done. I also enjoyed the ability to finish and turn in assignments earlier than the due date. The straightforwardness of the grading system and how the assignments were given was also really helpful. The example programs were also helpful in giving us a model to look at and understand how we should structure certain new concepts and how to go about coding them.
19. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
When I started I felt I didn't know how to apply ICS 111, maybe because I forgot alot of it. I sometimes could not choose the Java class examples for figuring out my assignments. I guess I could say Code Strategy is a problem for me.
Recursion and INFIX PREFIX calculators!
sometimes his grading is a bit slow, and sometimes i feel like he rushes the presentation of subjects a bit, like, the sortof assumes we know things that we don't.
Lacks on better examples after the first half.
Too many assignments. My ICS 111 course only had 10 assignments, this course had 26! I would rather take it face-to-face to get instant feedback on my code.
online only
Two assignments due per week most of the time; some easy but at times took a lot of time
I would personally prefer less assignments that are longer rather than many smaller assignments, but I can see the merits of that approach as well.
The assignments were to rapid, with two a week, i barely even had time to finish one before the next was due. I was always playing catchup and never really got the grade i wanted.
I didn't have any issues with the course and can't think of any glaring issues at the moment.
20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
There is a lot to do, but I guess its for the requirements of this coding level. This course is very excellent it has improved my coding skills.
No final project. Give additional extra credit.
I'm not sure what could improve the course more besides having a little more review of ics111 topics.
Enhance the forum. Not many people uses it.
The textbook was awful so get rid of it and choose a better one. Increase interaction between students, possibly with paired coding assignments. Have exams to test our knowledge.
make available as an in-person class, or have the instructor or tutor available more often, improve resolution of videos
An actual class on campus would be beneficial. Provide a pdf or something with all the terminology of coding.
A short dedicated video segment on each assignment (even just a minute or so) would be very welcome.
Less programs, less cringey lecture podcasts.
This course is one of the better online classes I've taken thanks to its ability to get straight to the point and its ease of access to all resources even outside of laulima. I don't think there needs to be any improvement that I can think of.
21. Other comments:
Thank you for all your help, some times I could not even get started on assignments.
Great instructor teaching difficult concepts. You put together a great course Professor Albritton, I will refer everyone looking to take ICS211 to you. Thank you for this experience.
William Albritton is a good teacher overall, and should get a raise or something. k thanks
William was an excellent instructor! It's too bad ICS 212 isn't taught next semester or I would have taken it from him.
Above all, I learned quite a few things which I'm very grateful. Thank you
Professor Albritton is a very good instructor to take this course from.
Great class.

18. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
It was great being able to program in class almost every time, and get quick feedback on things. I also enjoyed programming with C and C++ more than I thought I would (I liked it more than Java).
Flexible class times.
It was very flexible
Ability to optional attend class for in class discussion and review of the PowerPoint presentation.
CODE!
I like how Professor Albritton applied his knowledge of other areas of life into the course assignments, such as Japanese.
Being able to resubmit assignments. Having a clear understanding of what the assignment is asking for. I like having the choice of taking it in class or online.
I liked the powerpoint presentation during lectures the best because I got to visually see and learn the subject matter at hand. Professor's examples are all also on point.
Since I took this course as an online student, I did not get to experience what it was like in the classroom, but the option itself to take this online course was very nice and helpful. Being from UH Manoa, the ICS 212 here for some reason meets from late in the evening which would have been very troublesome for me. I liked that I was able to take the class and work at my own pace and schedule.
I assignments were very helpful and I feel like I learned a lot of useful techniques from completing them. The instructions were also very thoroughly written.
Programming assignments
19. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
I would have liked some of the course material to be covered in more detail, specifically (more on) the practical use of pointers in C/C++, and hpw to deal with memory management (in perhaps a few more assignments than it was covered).
Nothing, class was very fun.
There is a lot of assignments
Homework due dates feel a bit close to each other.
RECURSION!
None come to mind.
I least liked the assignments because there would be times when I would code by myself and I would be so lost and almost give up because i feel blinded. But after I get the answer, I would be like OHHH i love coding.
I felt that the slides could have a little more information, but of course, i'm sure the concepts were explained more during the lecture. As an online student, the slides were a bit hard to follow, but overall manageable.
I wish the class periods were longer so that we'd have more time to work on the assignments after the lecture.
Some assignments were too complex for current knowledge
20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
See above...
Perhaps more online resources.
More information
Going over code examples or homework more in class.
NO RECURSION! jk
Possibly expanding a little on linked lists. Its a little tricky to understand
None, I enjoy how the course is organized.
It could be improved if the computers were all working and if we had a permanent tutor who we could contact anytime we needed help.
I feel, as someone who took it online, the slides provided should be just a bit clearer because there is no lecturer to explain it to us. I would also like some sort of option to get the extra credit the students who go to class get, like maybe do some sort of check in, or small quiz to make sure the online students are keeping up.
I'd prefer not to be assigned having to write on the discussion board on Laulima.
More practice programs, more examples
21. Other comments:
This was a great course!
Woop woop
You kick ass, Albritton! keep kicking ass!
I enjoy having smaller assignments that don't require as much code and also having bigger assignments that combine a lot of topics together.
I definitely recommend this class because Professor Albritton is a very good teacher. He is clear, cut, and precise with each assignments and it is a very fun learning environment in his classes.
None, this class was great and I feel like I understand C and C++ more. Overall, I am thankful this was an option.
Great class, I learned a lot, thanks!

18. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I enjoyed this class and William Albritton made it easy to understand and follow along.I enjoyed learning how to build my own website.
The final project, it really allowed me to utilize all the skills I learned through out the course.
Doing all work in class helped with understanding the subject. I could work through class and any questions I had I could ask about it.
Learning how to create web pages using html and css codes.
everything was hard but fun. I got frustrated at times because of codes not validating but It was such a great feeling when I figure it out. It's fun.
19. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
Nothing really.
I have no complaints on the class.
Remembering all the codes.
20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Not sure.
I wish I had learned more fancier things for designing websites.

18. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Learning all the different codes that we need to use to create a website or anything that you need the code for.
The in class assignments
i liked that we can ask for help because it is very needed
One of the things I like about this class is the available resources that helps learning more successful and understandable. For example, the slideshows that is used in class is very helpful. Professor Albritton uses the same slideshow in class and I think it's a greet tool to keep the students on the same page especially if you miss class. I also like how the Professor is nice, respectful, funny, helpful and is not intimidating. He makes learning easy and he makes sure his students understand the concepts being tackled in class.
Very thorough about what needs to be done.
The class and its materials are well presented and organized.
19. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
n/a
The lack of communication between students
the work is hard to grasp
I don't really like how this class is ONLY being offered in spring. I also think that this class should be mandatory for any students on the DMED, internet publishing program.
That i needed access to certain computers to use certain programs.
Presented a higher level of difficulty than expected.
The group project
20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
n/a
Spread around the number of assignments. Add quizzes to refresh and maintain the information we learned.
if we had more examples of the code and more class time that would help.
I think visual basic (the program we use in class) is a great program for coding. However, I just wish that the program is also compatible on a mac computer.
Nothing.
It would be beneficial to have a few more step-by-step examples given or linked to (even from outside sources) for each assignment for students that are having difficulty with writing the expressions.
21. Other comments:
excellent class!!!
none
Professor Albritton is a great instructor for this class. He made this course enjoyable. Thank you Professor!
Having the lecture detailed in a powerpoint presentation was very helpful with review. The class schedule complete with topics, associated reading from the book, and the corresponding slides and examples were essential when trying to piece together everything covered during the semester into one final project.

18. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I liked how William encouraged us to post in the forums if we had any questions regarding the topics and encouraged students to help each other.
His personal website for the course.
It was very helpful and rewarding seeing Professor Albritton during his office hours (and sometimes by appointment!) to clarify programming concepts and challenges faced in certain assignments. Professor Albritton was always willing to help and is very knowledgable on Java programming! I also appreciated his positive and upbeat attitude, both in his lecture videos and in person.
We write codes.
Online. Easy ability to review previous lectures, flexible with having a job, and greatest feeling of achievement when the program does exactly what you want!!
I liked how the assignments were broken down into two small programs a week. I'd rather have that than one big challenging program to do.
His grading is very fair.
19. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
The course was very enjoyable and there aren't any aspects that stick out that I didn't like.
Downloadable videos
Too much homework.
The study and workload each week was a bit tough for me. This course was my main focus out of all my other 4 classes. Due to the amount of study hours I needed to get the grade I wanted. Also, if you fall behind on a assignment or chapter etc. The work and difficulty will just stack. So it was crucial to meet deadlines and review each podcast and slide.
Having to watch podcasts were a drag sometimes - but it's an online class, what do I expect.
Some assignments weren't clear. At least some assignments instructions weren't laid out as clearly as it could be.
20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
I believe this course is fine the way it is. As it is an online course, most of the responsibility lies with the student to seek help and learn the material mostly on their own. The material is presented in a way that makes it easy to learn.
The sound and video in the lecture videos seemed to be a little out of sync (maybe in some videos more than others?). One thing I personally would prefer is in the lecture video content, if instead of briefly "running through" a program (in jGrasp) before going in detail on certain parts of the program, if instead the example programs were covered first briefly in the PowerPoint (highlighting the purpose and the main new/important statements that the program features), and then when going over the actual program in jGrasp, spending time very slowly going over the details of the code.
Please check email often and give clear instruction.
Maybe a few more examples for certain assignments.
None. This course is run perfectly in my opinion. Everything is fair.

18. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The content.
The course was somewhat self-paced. We were given the flexibility to complete homework either in-class or at home, which was awesome. Also Mr. Albritton is downright hilarious while still getting his message across effectively. It was very helpful that all of the class materials were available online just in case I had to go back over a part of the lecture.
It was very easy to follow along.
The fact that there is someone to ask questions is a huge plus. William is very helpful when asked question but he makes you trouble shoot the problem yourself. We do learn from this.
I liked gaining information on different types of coding to use to transform and design personalized web pages (CSS, HTML, etc).
his set up on the internet with so many examples were very helpful.
Learning how to create websites using HTML and CSS.
Short lectures with time to work on assignments.
The aspect I liked best about this course was getting a better and clear understanding with HTML. Also, doing the assignments with Albritton present to assist the students.
The Website building.
19. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
Occasionally Mr. Albritton would stay on a certain slide while he went ahead a bit with the lecture, then would skip over a couple to catch back up. But some of us retain information better when we read something vs. just hear it, so it made the lecture hard to follow at times, at least for me personally. Also I have never enjoyed working with others, so the group project- while completely reasonable- was definitely my least favorite part of the course.
None.
There are so many people in the class that sometimes I need to wait awhile before my question can be asked.
There are so many codes to memorize throughout the semester and it's rather challenging to try to use them in later assignments because of the validation errors that often come up when trying to check how well the code works before submitting the assignments.
software worked good only in computers in class. library computers did not work as good
Communication seems to be an issue when trying to work on a Group Project. It is unsure if the group will be "on the same page" when the deadline comes.
Nothing comes to mind.
The aspect I liked least would be learning things that I already knew.
Nothing really.
20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
I would have preferred an option to do a solo final project since I'm a control freak, but at the same time it's probably healthy to be forced into socializing once in a while. Other than the lecture-slide thing, it was a great course!
.
I can't really think of how this course could be improved... maybe for the final project, there could be set topics to choose from instead of trying to come up with an idea of a business or type of website to not only create, but to also design as well. I think that was the hardest part of the whole semester, coming up with the topic to use for the last project.
all good
Transform the Final Project into an Individual assignment instead of the current Group format. The professor can more easily see who are the "A" students are when they are by themself.
I have no suggestions.

Rock on, Mr. Albritton!
Great instructor!!! I recommend William Albritton to anyone looking to major in DMED!

18. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Wide range of material covered with enough depth to get a general understanding and utility of a range of applications
Time in class to work on assignments.
I liked having class time to start assignments so that we were able to discuss questions or problems with classmates and the instructor. The powerpoint presentations were very useful. I plan to print them all out. I think the pace of the course made it easy for everyone to keep up with all the new skills we learned each week.
What I liked about the class was learning how to use the access a lot better. Opened my knowledge of it.
I liked that we were given some class time at the end to do some homework. Majority of the time, I was able to finish my homework in class. By doing so, I didn't need to worry about doing my homework at home.
19. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
None
I didn't care for the homework review questions where we only had to copy down definitions from the textbook. I think we gained a lot more understanding working on the questions relating to specific databases.
None
At one point during the middle of the course, one particular material was very confusing and vague. We briefly went over it, but I still wasn't able to understand it. I also didn't like how homework was graded. We wouldn't know if what we did was right or wrong.
20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
None
A teachers aid would greatly help students. Going over the home work a little more would would also help.
I know you can't change the set up of the classroom, but I think the way the space is designed (lots of space between students, very rigid setup with everyone focused on their own screen) might make students less likely to participate in class. Maybe having students work in small groups or pairs for assignments early in the semester might get students talking?
None
Grade the homework and then go over the homework by explaining the steps to get to the answer.
21. Other comments:
I enjoyed this class and learned lots. I've worked with Access in the past and taken a database class before, but I was never able to fully understand relationship types and the concept of how to keep to "one theme per table" until your class. Thanks!

18. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I appreciate how each assignment was directly related to the slides/lecture, and nothing was left unexplained.
The entire course is carefully and clearly presented in a very organized manner.
Although I did not take advantage of it, I liked that the class was published early - during summer to be exact. Had I taken advantage of this opportunity, I am sure my understanding of the concepts will have been much stronger. I also like that William responds to questions posted on the forums promptly and is able to answer them effectively. I liked the different level of difficulties per assignment - some assignments were hard some were easy. It was a good balance. Perhaps the best aspect of the course is learning how to tackle more abstract tasks. I often compare the feeling of figuring out a program to the feeling you get when you figure out a 100 piece jigsaw puzzle - you don't know where to begin but soon as you find the corners and edges of the puzzle and work your way inwards, you begin to see the picture.
Lectures and Slides posted online, so it was easy to rewatch and learn the materials better. Programming Assignments were fun/challenging and really related to the course.
I liked how the assignments directly related to whatever what was discussed in the powerpoints and lectures.
I liked the amount of coursework there was because while it was difficult at times ti helped to learn the concepts in a faster manner.
the program writing
19. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
N/A
I especially did not appreciate the lack of social interactions in this course. Although I expected the lack of social interactions from an online course, I feel like this course was the most dead of all my other online classes from the past. I could almost hear crickets in the forums!
There weren't any aspects that I particularly disliked.
I disliked that some concepts were a bit vague.
the final project
20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
This course seems to be very polished. I do not feel suggestions are needed.
To solve the social problem maybe William could create an assignment where students are assigned a partner to correct each other's codes or maybe collaborate to write a final program. I don't know... something that involves social interactions.
Compare / Contrast Instructor implemented API with Java API for things like linked lists, queues etc. How to declare an use the Java API for linked lists etc.
Maybe having more smaller assignments for some concepts that may be difficult.
It could be improved by more examples.
more interaction
21. Other comments:
ICS 211 opened my eyes to the expanse of programming. It has actually influenced my very thought process of coding and life.
Overall, I learned quite a lot from this course. I was skeptical about my programming skills prior to this course and even thought about dropping out of class before the semester began because I did not start on the assignments during summer as William suggested. However, as the semester passed I realized I was able to follow through with the lessons and understand the concepts quite clearly. I owe it to William's teaching style. Out of all my courses this semester, this is the one class I actually looked forward into. I believe this course taught me how to enjoy programming. Thank you for an awesome semester, Prof!
Enjoyable course. Instructor presented materials in an interesting and fun manner.
N/A
It was a good learning experience. My logic and programming skills have definitely developed.

I am glad I learned C and C++
19. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
I wished we covered GUIs in this class.
everything is challenging but it was great
20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
This course could be improved if he could make comments on our code. Showing or posting solutions for assignments would also help showing alternate solutions to the assignments.
More complicated homework assignments but longer due dates.
Maybe a little more explanation on assignments. Most of the time, explanation was perfectly fine!
21. Other comments:
Overall, this course was very good. I would highly recommend this teacher to fellow students.

Good coverage of topics related to web development. Assignments both helped my understanding and gave me insights into how to correctly create a webpage (even regarding readability and design).
The details of power point instruction. Be able to understand a good basic knowledge of HTML.
Just the topic of the class. I enjoyed learning how to make websites look good.
Relaxed atmosphere, enjoyable learning environment. basic concepts explained in a clear and concise manner.
I liked learning html and css protocols to learn how to design a web page. Seeing your work on a webpage was very exciting.
Being able to do assignments in class, get feedback from the instructor, and being able to have time for one on one help if needed, within the class period.
Creating and publishing web pages from the very beginning and with each assignment. Producing a product, as opposed to homework answering a set of questions, was great!
What I liked in this course was being able learn to create a website and assignments that made it easy for me.
working on the computers and learning how to create websites
19. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
None- I liked all of it.
There was no aspect that I did not like.
The least aspects that I didn't like is when you think you got the assignment right, it validates that I have some kind of error.
nothing
20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Maybe supplemental readings/materials for those who want to learn more than just the basics? Of course this can be done on their own as well. Otherwise I like how it is now.
PREREQUISITES: Taking a basic computer skills test before considering this class.
Would have liked to learn a little more about using what we learned in class and applying it in the real world. Learn a little more on actually publishing our websites.
The course could be improved with more examples of how the html and css protocols work. We learned the basics of the coding, but more examples would have been helpful.
I actually like it how it is. Assignments have the minimum things we learned that class due, but you can always add more, or customize the web page, so long as you have the required things included. You're also able to access everything you learned in class, online,on laulima. Very helpful and useful.
I wish that the Dreamweaver software wasn't too expensive to do the assignment.
nothing

18. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I like how the course is so well organized. I like the instructors short lectures. I like the class time the instructor sets aside to work on assignments. I like the points the instructor gives for attendance. I like how he grades assignments quickly (same day). So much good things...
Simplicity of the lectures/use of PowerPoints.
I liked being able to see the principles of database fundamentals application to the real world immediately upon starting.
learning new skills for windows and mac computer
everything, teacher made work easy to understand and was always willing to help
The way the information of the class worked with the assignments I thought were tied really well to each other. My before the class and after the class knowledge of the subject vastly changed. I think it was one of the best college courses I have taken.
I liked creating databases.
19. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
i don't know.
nothing to mention
Having to wait until the end of the course to figure out how to assemble a complete database.
nothing. everything was good
not being able to pick partners for final project
The final assignment. It was a team assignment, and I could have done much better on my own. My teammates were uncooperative and our resulting database was poorly designed. Also, what was expected for the last assignment was not clear. This was the only time I really didn't understand what was expected of me, and that resulted in a few false starts. Between that, and the lack of cooperation from my teammates, I lost interest in the assignment. It would have been better if the assignment was not a group project. I understand the importance of learning to work with others, but this was an introductory database class, and the final project asked too much of us. Maybe if we could've chosen our teammates? I don't know... What I do know is that I enjoyed most of the class, except for that final assigment, which I really, really hated.
A little too patient with those that struggled in the class. I felt that those who did well in the class were slowed down by those that struggled.
Working with SQL
20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
i don't know.
I honestly cannot think that there's anything to improve. The lessons get out there, the work is identified and reasonable. Don't mess with if it ain't broke.
The pace is good enough and the material is easy to understand. No improvements needed.
A little more time could be spent in report formatting and layout.
nothing. everything was ggod
I dont know any way this can be improved
Not sure

18. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I like the labs in class. It helps us apply the concept of what we are learning right away while the professor is discussing.
Class is super organized, that you know what to read, what to do, what to know, and all that. Instructor gives time in class to work on assignments, and walks around the room to help students. Learning ASP.NET web forms was essential for my career as a web designer, and Mr. Albritton taught this well.
He goes with you step by step with every assignment in class.
Hands on exercises to apply database programming.
I liked learning more of web design.
everything
The valuable natural of the class.
The class work is well organized! I have time to look over future work and practice the work before class. Plus when I run into problems I usually write questions down for my instructor to answer in future classes. The computers are great! Fast, slick, and clean!
19. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
The group project. I like the project only if every member does there part well.
no biggie, but a little bit fast and rushed in the first few weeks.
N/A
NOT having this class in an online format.
Not sure
not being able to pick partners for final project
Needed more information.
At times the class get too cold which is disturbs my study.
20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
I think this course is over-all good and well organized.
I don't know.
N/A
Have this course transformed into an online format just like the JAVA classes. Do not really like group projects, so perhaps a individual project with alot of time to complete it. Having more extra credit assignments for helping a student's grade.
It can not be improved
Using another program to go with visual basic.
21. Other comments:
I enjoyed this class.
N/A
Create an online format. Keep classes on Tuesday / Thursday.
good job
William is one of my favorite instructors. He is very positive and tries to be professional at all time. He is very patient with his students and always has a smile on his face which doesn't discourage me to ask any questions. His method of work is very effective in learning and forces me to attend class every day. I've had William for 2 class semesters and I've learn so much. It is nice to see great instructors like him. I am thankful for his teaching. I look forward to future courses that he is teaching.

18. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I learned a lot from the material covered in class.
Lots of assignments were a good way to practice what we learned. Got grade back very quickly. Professor answered questions very quickly.
Albritton was very helpful outside of class.
Creating working programs, learning to use classes, and the extends in Java. I hope to apply this knowledge in a career in software development. :) I also appreciated that you provided us with extensive tests to make sure our programs were running correctly.
The videos were very helpful
This course is very well structured and organized. A student could, if they wanted, do the entire class as soon as they wanted. Assignments were always relevant, and slides/lectures were helpful as well.
I liked learning about stacks, queues and linkedLists the most. Tree's not so much..lol
We can ask him questions at anytime and he would reply quickly
19. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
It was hard to keep up with the workload over the semester.
Use of professor prepared java classes. Learning to use the Java API or writing the code would be much better than using prepared classes.
Podcasts weren't always explanatory where it really counted. Along with that, the example code was hardly in line with the assignment. This left an important portion of each assignment to the imagination where I had to read and re-read the appropriate material and/or seek extra help.
Getting the java comment/documentation down took a few assignments to get the hang of.
none
Trees
The unclear homework instruction.

21. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Maybe keep the assignments a little closer to the examples.
No using prepared classes
Better example programs that are more in line with the homework assignments would improve this course greatly. I realize that it's important not to "give away" the source for our assignments and that we're supposed to write our own code. However, when the podcast isn't descriptive where it counts and the example program differs too greatly from the assignment, concrete understanding of the concepts can't be formed and it becomes impossible to get a decent grade for the course.
There really are no changes that I think would benefit this course. It is set up really well.
This course was very informative, and I have learned a lot. I can't think of an criticisms at this time.
Clearer homework examples and instructions.
22. Other comments:
Overall an enlightening class on Java! I plan to develop some apps over the summer for Android, so the instruction in this course should come in handy.

18. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Every day I learned something new about HTML/CSS and building webpages! This is an excellent class and I'd definitely recommend it to any DMED student!
The way William Albritton taught the class made me want to come to class and learn.
I liked how each of the daily assignments were built upon the knowledge and learning outcomes gained from the previous assignment(s). Our instructor, William Albritton made great use of the rooms equipment and presented well. I liked how our instructor showed the HTML structure on one screen (electronic whiteboard), and the CSS code on another (projector screen), back and forth, in reverse, multiple times, until we got it right. The presentation of the concepts were top-notch and taught me HTML and CSS. I liked how the course was incredibly organized. I liked the pace and progression of learning objectives and assignments. I liked all of the example web pages the instructor created and presented. It really does make the subject interesting. I liked how the instructor allowed everyone the creative control of their own work. It made the course interesting for the students. I liked how the instructor was there to help you if you struggle and ask for help. I liked how he walked around the room offering to help. I liked how you know exactly where you stand in terms of grading each day. I liked the instructor's enthusiasm and energy. I liked how he treated everyone. He very level and fair. No bias, no prejudice. His demeanor friendly and perfect. As a DMED major, I liked how we learned practical and valuable skills in this course. I liked how this course and instructor are available in both Fall and Spring. All of that is the best.
I liked learning the content of programing in HTML
ALL :D
19. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
There wasn't one thing I disliked about this class.
That the computers we worked on had the applications we needed, we did not have to buy them.
I cannot think of anything that I disliked. let me think about it a little longer... ... still ... cannot think of anything I don't like.
N/A
nothing
20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
This course was awesome! Nuff sed!
Only way this course can me improved is let the students pick their partners for the final project.
Let's just leave all the improvements to the course up to this instructor. From my student perspective it is perfect.
I think one way this course could have been improved is if the lab was open for DMED students to work in, so that we could have more access to Adobe software, and we could spend more time on our assignments and projects.
21. Other comments:
Prof. Albritton is a fantastic teacher!! He was very helpful and his lessons were very clear and precise. I had a lot of fun in this class and really enjoyed it. Not only is Prof. Albritton a great teacher, but he's very funny and approachable. This guy deserves a raise or an award...or BOTH!
Great class, great teacher, keep up the good work Mr. Albritton
If any student was left behind in this course; it was their own choice. There were several students with attendance issues. I witnessed some of it in all my classes this semester. As sad as it is, I feel mentioning this is important because the participation(or non-participation) of your classmates can affect the learning experience. I know a lot of that is beyond our control and you can't make anyone do something. I'm just pointing it out.

18. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I liked that Professor Albritton was very animated and lively. He is easy to approach and talk to, should you have any questions.
I took the class online. I liked how I was able to watch the lecture videos anytime I wanted, or on TV if I wanted.
The videos were very informative and helpful for the class.
hands on learning
Everyone hates ppt slides but these were awesome. Good explanation, good examples, and the pictures everywhere really help avoiding getting distracted. It was great to be able to blow through a bunch of lectures that were clear, and then spend that extra time on sections that just weren't clicking in my head.
The ability to email him at anytime with questions.
the fact that it was online and i didnt have an obligation to be on campus so i could work more
Mainly the the fact we got to learn the concepts of things and how they work.
coding using JGrasp and Eclipse was a hoot and very fun.
I like the set up of the class. Professor Albritton divides the class hours into two sections, first part is discussion and second part is hands on. The immediate hands on helps me apply all the things we learned in the discussion.
The professor is very considerate and wants his students to succeeds.
Always getting help in class whenever i needed it. Also he didnt just give us the answer he made sure we could figure it out on our own.
Examples to work off of.
giving assignments on weekly basis so we can practice programming
learned a lot of material of programming
19. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
I did not like that we were expected to complete 2-3 programming assignments a week. In comparison to other ICS courses because programs take some time to construct, debug, etc. we were expected to complete programs once a week. Also, the lectures and powerpoints go hand in hand, they did not provide as much information that was needed to complete the assignment.
Although they weren't major assignments, I didn't like have so many due. Two a week was a bit much for me considering I had work.
I wish I would have taken it in person, the teacher seems to really know his stuff.
how fast we go through assignments
There were a few times where it seemed some programming method that we'd need wasn't covered in the lecture.
How heavy loaded some of the assignments were. Too much to do in a small assignment
the fact that when i asked him questions he just told me i was wrong most of the time
Not much explaination on how to go about coding, or atleast I found it hard to translate the concept to the coding.
N/A
I enjoyed the course very much.
I kind of didnt like how he would get lost in some of the programs.
Probably should have spent a little more time coding the given coding used such as nodes/linked lists etc which are just implemented.
the way he teaches
i like the assignment of the teacher given, its very organized and the our laulima site of this class is very unique.
20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
The powerpoints and lectures should focus more on the assignments. Less programs in a week, or break the programs into sections.
I didn't like having two assignments due every week. It would've been nice, like a refresher, to have just one due every now and then.
Maybe more example code?
slow down a little somethings are still brand new to students
Take a look at the curriculum coverage of the GUI and Applet vs Application methods. Especially Layouts. See if there's any gaps that could be covered in the lectures.
Less work-heavy assignments.
Take the on campus class. Avoid the online class. He is a good teacher in class but online not so much.
More example codes and how they function.
I think if he went indepth more into some of the programs. Also if he could explain how these programs can be used more with each other.
Instead of just taking code and using it, maybe code more of the whole program.
explain things more
21. Other comments:
Overall, Professor Albritton is a good professor, easy to talk to, outgoing, etc. The structure of the course could use some readjustment.
Cool professor. Easy to approach. I wasn't afraid to email him.

18. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I liked how we got to learn on how to make a html files, and learn the different codes.
super cool teacher
The slide show that he presents in class is very helpful, clear and objective. If we have any questions about it, we can access the content through Laulima at anytime.
Everything was interesting and I absolutely loved this course. I would take it again just because it was so much fun, the professor is a wonderful teacher.
I like how we are able to create our own webpage while learning new coding.
Being able to create a web page from scratch
I like everything we did in this course. I learned a lot with the html and css coding. I also like how I got to express my creativity in class while working on the final project.
I liked that I was able to apply and use the system after he taught it.
19. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
It was difficult to learn all the codes.
everything was good
Using only the templates from the course made me a little bit confused when I try to create a webpage on my own for fun at home.
Nothing, everything was great!
I guess just getting stuck on codes.
having to look up html codes
Nothing. This course taught me a lot.
All..
20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
i dont realy know
-Start at least one assignment from zero, not using templates would probably make us understand the steps and functions more clear since this is the lowest beginners class. -Using other students assignments and projects as example is always a motivation and inspiration since we are all in the same boat.
Maybe just a little more time for the final project, however I prefer working alone, not in groups.

William Arbritton makes us feel comfortable and welcome! That helps a lot when we have questions and need help. Not to mention that he is really dedicate in replying to our emails ASAP which for me shows professionalism.
This course has taught me so much valuable information. I remember when IK first entered the class and was terrified for html code, it looked so complicated, but come to find out it was not hard at all. The professor is one of my favorite professors yet!! Keep doing what you are doing.
Great teacher
I would like to say thank you to Professor Albritton for making the class interesting. Like I said, I learned a lot and enjoyed all class sessions. I recommend him to other students.

He provide examples and teach us through (very helpful) power point presentation which is also on Laulima so we can access it again.

Prof. made it fun to learn about databases. he made it was easy to learn.
The teacher is swag
Albritton has a very dynamic teaching style, I really enjoyed the class as a whole.
We always have a fun time in class.

Nothing.
There was nothing necessarily bad about the course but some of the material got really complicated.
none

I think the prof. has a great grasp on this course on how to teach while making possibly boring material fun. i would recommend future students to take this class from Prof Albritton
I don't know.
I liked it the way it is.
Maybe if we can choose our own final group project

Easy to follow format made understanding concepts better understood.
"Hands on" approach to teaching the concepts and fundamentals.
Resources The power point was very useful. The atmosphere was focused but unthreatening (not intimidating).
Going through the assignments in class helped my understanding of the material.
Able to make websites with other stuff working in it.
Learning out to do the vb file in web developer.
I liked the class environment. It was relaxed and friendly. He allows his students to explore and think outside the box. William is enthusiastic about teaching and made learning fun.
I liked how helpful the professor was with our assignments.
The assignments were fun and straight forward
19. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
Kind of a bland subject.
Doing assignments in class. It felt rushed and I wasn't able to absorb it as well as when I did it at home.
The final project but that is mainly because I don't work too well in groups.
the part where we have to do if-else statement
20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Maybe some extra work may help with remembering what was learned. Some study material to help reenforce what was learned.
No improvement needed.
All in all I was happy with it.
Maybe have students make their own example of how to use what they learned in class.
none
Can't think of anything at the moment.

17. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
the powerpoints were helpful the content small assignments daily
Easy to understand
we always have fun in class.
His power points were very clear cut, and easy to follow whenever I missed a class. Everything was very straight forward, there were no gray areas or difficult concepts. This was a very cool class.
I liked doing Assignment 21 because I really loved the design I made and the colors matched the Youtube video I posed
Learning all about web design and learning all the codes that we needed to do for our work
Showing what is happening in the program through written explanations on the board.
I enjoyed doing the daily assignments/projects. They really helped me to understand and remember the material covered in class.
I really appreciate the structure of the assignments. Creating a lesson plan in which all new topics are explained and applied without the need of hw or programs outside of the class time is very helpful. The somewhat rigid design isnt ideal for most, but it's roots in discipline and efficiency keep me motivated and allowed me to do much better in this class than others.
The class set us up for a good amount of information on web coding.
Great course. The material was well presnted.
The technology in the classroom was top notch. The projector screen with high res was absolute to the knowledge of the class. Mr. Albritton has a great sense of humor and he adds excitement to the class.
How it was a very hands on class and I was able to finish most of my assignments in class
18. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
sometimes cannot understand the examples cannot resubmit work
none
learning about the positioning of the contents on the page, text aligning was straight forward, as was the border and table and padding stuff. but when it came to positioning all elements, like iframes and videos etc. that got very confusing.
Well, I did struggle with Assignment 20. But It doesn't bother me that much now.
NONE
Didn't really go through a whole program being written step by step to try and give individual understanding at different parts.
Nothing.
The course matter itself can be frustrating, but there's no helping that.
I'm not really comfortable with the final group project idea.
The class was a little chilly. Hey you asked.

20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
learning more codes if not in class or learning how to code something specific
1) Longer assignments. 2) More projects
none
It would be nice if the positioning power point was a little more spread out, its kind of a lot, or I could just have trouble grasping it. it could just be me. Its a convoluted portion.
So far, I think there's nothing wrong. The lectures are clear enough and the powerpoints and the class examples on Laulima are there for reference.
keep the course how it is
Do a few programs in real time in front of class to show what each part of the program does. Explaining how to write them and why it is that way.
My only suggestion would be to go over some materials again in order for the students to remember it better.
All the help was there, all the structure was there, and the instructor was probably one of the best i've had, especially for this subject matter. Don't change a thing.
I would change the final project thing a bit. Working in a group just adds more stress.
There is always room for improvement.

Learned alot thanks!
The course was great, I learned an amazing amount, I always thought coding was rocket science, but just like assembling a gaming pc, step by step, its really not that crazy. And Mr. Albritton was very easy to interact with, and very eager to help students, he never got frustrated with repetitive questions and was always willing to explain something twice. An excellent professor.
i would tell my friends about him and tell them to take this course
I am really looking forward to taking more classes in this subject area and with this instructor.
NA
Thank you Mr. Albritton for your great attitude and knowledge of the HTML coding world. I appreciate your wealth of information and I enjoyed the projects with adding my own creativity. Go Bama!!

17. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
William is an awesome instructor that is always willing to provide assistence to us. He maximizes class time with lectures and assignments while allowing time to do work towards the end of the class to secure a thorough knowledge before leaving class.
Well organized, prepared, ready and willing to help.
Learning new things, and all of the class's PowerPoint being accessible online.
I felt that Mr. Albritton scored the assignments in a timely manner. This allowed one to ask for the correct solution or to clarify the mistake.
I like the group project, where we are able to apply our collective knowledge we learned from Professor Albritton to make a working data that will result in a benefit for one of group members career in managing network PCs.
ã?ªã??
William is very easy to get along with. He showed the concepts and answers to lessons in a clear and easily understood manner.
The best aspects of this class was the fact that Prof Albritton is so willing to help out anyone in the class that just asked for it! Not to mention he give feed back on the assignments and shows what was wrong and how it could be fixed.
I like the fact that we had plenty of "on hands" time to do our assignments.
I liked that we had time in class to work on our assignments. This allowed us have our questions immediately answered by the instructor.
It was a pretty chill class.
i liked the powerpoints and how he walks everyone through the database tools and how to use them.
The fact that we worked with databases is what I liked best because this is something I want to go into in the future.
18. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
I understand that in order to grasp specific concepts more homework may be assigned but we we should have been given more time to complete the added assignments.
Some assignments were a bit confusing, but nothing too bad.
The book's chapter questions were difficult to comprehend.
ã?ªã??
I can't think of any thing.
Nothing. Class was awesome!
None.
Sometimes the database didn't do what I wanted it to. Completely, absolutely, totally the fault of the database. Bad database. Bad.
The subject wasn't all that interesting, but can't do anything about that.
There wasn't anything that I didn't like.

No need to improve
I am now able to build more manageable data program for inventory tools, and genealogy, than using excel spreadsheets.

I don't know. Maybe a different book that is laid out in an easier language.
Not available.
None.
Sorry, can't really think of any.
Longer class periods may help. The class sometimes felt too short do finish some work.

Professor Albritton's excellent organizaion. The entire course was very well organized and easy to follow. Professor Albritton should definetely be a model to follow by other professors.
ONLINE! Many other courses would be better this way.
I like that it is very clear what is due when and that there are links to related materials right next to the assignment.
Got to learn a few new thing about java.
I like that we had 2 short assignments (as opposed to one big one) each week, and that they came with example programs that we could use as guides. Also, the extra credit opportunities are very nice to have.
video lectures
The assignment corespondent what we were doing that week.
I liked how the lectures provided us with lots of examples to help us with our assignments. The instructor provided clear explanations
I like that it's online. This instructor has one of the best organized syllabi and assignment schedules...everything is where it should be and it was easy to follow.
I like how the assignments were very straightforward and to the point. i felt like i learned a lot with this class.
18. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
I believed the course met its expectations.
I think it would encourage students to learn more if you could turn in the assignment multiple times for a higher score, providing incentive to do an assignment after it is already graded should there be mistakes.
Except for a few thing I feel like I didn't learn much at all.
I'm not too keen on group projects... I'm a full time student and I work, so I prefer working at my own pace. I would also rather not have the added pressure of bringing someone else grade down.
n/a
Give more time for the assignment
I did not like how our assignments were due on Tuesday, since we didn't get feedback during the weekend it limited the amount of help we could receive.
Lectures need to be updated - many were difficult to follow and understand. There is no doubt that the instructor knows the material. I found that some of the explanations were very vague.

I can not think on anything to change because I really think the course is very well organize, and Professor Albritton makes the class very interesting.
More smaller assignments possibly to get a better understanding of specific parts of code before coding the assignments we did.
Not have it be a long distance class.
Some more example programs might be helpful. Otherwise, this was an awesome online course!

Some of the assignment weren't that clear that it was hard to write some of the codes for parts of the assignment. The podcast lecture didn't help for some of the assignment.
Shorten the lectures. Clarify concepts better. There is a lot of skipping from one thing to the next and back again. It's also difficult to follow the lecture when he refers to a document that you need to download and have open during the lecture. If you haven't printed the document and must look at it online, you'll need to scroll and jump from one window to the next. In the meantime, you're missing what he's pointing to because you're looking elsewhere trying to figure out what part of the document he's talking about. Then you need to stop and/or rewind the lecture until you figure out where he is. That was particularly frustrating.
Maybe instead of two assignments a week make it one assignment a week.

I'm very bad with online classes and I should have dropped this class when I had the chance.

17. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
is was very user friendly. and the teacher gave us useful tools to understand the lessons
Interesting programs
Plenty of time in class to do homework.
I learned a lot of how to perform course material from the PowerPoints. 95% of the time I walked away from class more confused during than I was after I reread the powerpoints. I like the ability to access the professor through google chat via gmail. He spoke in very high level terminology during class from words that were first time presented in last class. He has to realize his students may have never accessed a computer or never programmed before either.
The freedom to code in my own fashion without having to write programs to match an instructor's preconceived notion of how it should be done.
Working on our assignment in class.
Powerpoints and example programs available to look at for reference.
18. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
n/a
I would like to have seen more examples of how to use certain topics. I realize that giving an example similiar to the assignment would not challenge a student to learn the topic, but it seemed as though alot of the assignments were nothing like the examples given in the lecture.
Very little time to turn assignments in.
What we learned in class was only a fraction of the homework
Outdated methods, why use EMACS? Twenty minutes of class would be spent on lecture, the rest of the class was used to do the homework. Class time could have been used more effectively.
C++. was not that cool. But the dereferenceing with parenthesis was a doozy! Needed more in depth explaination of what this was and how it worked down to how the cpu presents the information and better and more graphical representation of whats happening during program execution.
Not enough depth or breadth to the course, and could use more instruction and better explanations for the sections covered (but without increasing the time spent on each section).
The instructor and the amount of time given to complete assignments. One day to complete a program, in a language you are new to, is not feasible. It gives you no time to work through problems or seek help.
The presentation of concepts were not presented well.
The amount of homework given and when it was due. Some of the students work shift work. 12 hour shifts four days on four days off. It became difficult to do homework when our string of work began on a Monday, because we had work at 545am left for school came back to work and left to go home at 545pm. So we would have to rush to do homework that night and finish it before going to bed, to get ready for another 12 hour shift at work the next day.
That we had a new assignment every class. I felt as if students were rushed to finish assignments causing stress. It seems that this course takes a toll on time when it comes to thinking about what to write in code. With a little more time on homework assignments, I feel each student will be able to progress more.
Maybe a few problems thrown in which took a little long to figure out.
19. Global appraisal: Considering everything how would you rate this COURSE?

4.5 2 0.71 Freq(%) 0 (0%) 4 (50%) 0 (0%) 1 (50%) 0 (0%)
20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
more time to go more in depth in programming and more examples of current programs
Please show more examples of the programming structures being used.
Better examples with what is expected to be turned in for assignments.
The instructor could be more organized. He could also base the homework off of what we learned.
More efficient time usage.
Dumb down the verbal explaination of how the material works. Teach at a lower level while maintaining the level of content taught.
Power points need to be redone to be more informative. Would have considered reading in a file and outputting a file to be essential coding practice for a class like this. Covered makefiles exhaustively, so it would have been nice to code programs that take multiple inputs to compile in order to make the makefile have more meaning.
I feel the instructor was not completely prepared to teach the course. He has not taught it in several years and it was obvious. I also would have liked the instructor to remember questions he was unable to answer in class and email or give the correct answer the next class period. I also felt the instructor wasn't able to gauge how the class was feeling on a subject. I know you cannot stop if one student is lost, but if majority is, a new approach should be taken. I also wasn't fond of the teaching style the instructor has, I felt as if he was not fully prepared or just wan't able to convey his thoughts appropriately and clearly.
Better examples. More clearly presented.
A little more time for homework.
This course could improve by making assignment periods slightly longer than they are now. A tutor for this course could also be beneficial to the students in this class because it isn't always easy to meet with the professor.
Go through programs a little more intricately for more understanding on each step.

Overall it was a great class.
I enjoyed this class when I understood it.
The professor was awesome. But just too smart but not a teacher. He is definitely a professor not a teacher. His ability to teach very new and intricate topics like arrays of arrays simutaneously introducing strings was extremely difficult to grasp and the Dereferencing was extremely new to me. Even the word itself was new. I looked it up in the dictionary to get a clear udnerstanding of what the word meant and in reference to C programming.
I was lost from week 3. I was so lost I didn't even know what questions to ask. :( I understand that Mr. Albritton hasn't taught this class in a while, hopefully the next go around will be a lot better.
All-in-all, this course was enjoyable and filled with knowledge.

Learned how to make websites and structure of them.
Knowledge to build websites for both professional and personal use.
creating different formats of webpages, how to post pages on the internet
Confidence in Web Dynamics.
I intend on eventually getting a job in this field and know the material learned will help me in the future.
Understanding about html that I may now apply on my work
being able to fix a mistake on a webpage by looking at possible errors in its code.
I now know how to use xhtml and css for creating web sites.
The basic understanding of Dream weaver and html code
It gave me a greater understand of how websites are made and designed, while offering students hands on experience.

He seems willing to help students, and answers questions fairly promptly.
very interested in the success of the students
I so appreciated his understanding for us less fortunate students.
I had several questions for Mr. Albritton which he was always willing to help me until I found the answer I needed to complete my assignments.
I e mailed him a couple of questions through out the semester and he was always quick and helpful to answer.
Emails were answered in a prompt manner and questions/problems with work were clearly explained.
Offered help when needed.
Willian Albritton would always email changes and updates to the students and keep things up to date.

18. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Nothing in particular
the online course material and assignment turn in
Mr. Albritton's sense of humor.
For being such a boring subject to sit and watch for over an hour Mr. Albritton does a great job at keeping it entertaining. It really helps keep you going when you think those videos will never end.
The very organized schedule and examples for every subject in each class.
All, I really enjoyed this course
The assignments
I liked that the whole coarse was uploaded in video and power point files. This enabled me to work at my own pace when time allowed for it.
I enjoyed the creativity that we could use to degin our webpages while still having a gradeable standard.
19. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
The exams
the podcasts
Way too short.
The long videos.
I thought the exams sometimes were a bit confusing. The multiple choice became confusing at times.
None.
20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
No comment
Continuation of HTML language. Continuation of CSS syntax.
The only improvement i can think of is a bit more simplified exam, so many options in a topic as complicated as html creates confusion.

More courses from this instructor
Learned a lot, thanks
I think William Albritton should teach other DMED courses online like, Dreamweaver and Flash because of his thoroughness in explaining difficult concepts. Maybe if he had been teaching those two courses, I would not have had to drop them because details which were needed to thoroughly understand the programs which were omitted or assumed that the students already knew.
great class. The Mr. Albritton is great at breaking down the html code and explaining it in a way everyone can understand.

2. What things did you get from this course that will benefit you personally?
Pprogramming skills that apply to more than just Java
Hopefully more understanding to programming
Critical thinking and building upon computer language basics.
Learned more about the basics and got a better grip on how the java langauge works and was able to understand the work.
This class will help me further in the java programming world.
Skills needed for programming in Java.
A better understanding of the Java programming language.
Task and time management
I gained knowledge that will most likely help me in future ICS courses. And was able to read and create programs.
Introduced me to new styles of programming and that there's many ways to do one thing.
The things that I got from this course that I will benefit from personally are a better and improved knowledge of Java; how to model real life problems as objects and solve them using Java programs and applications; how to develop more robust programs that handle errors and exceptions; and how to search and sort through different data structures.
