13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I learned how to program which I thought I would never be able to do.
I loved this class, all the assignments helped me a lot.
Marjorie has an engaging teaching style, and made an effort to connect with the students in order to create a good learning relationship, and communicate to all that her primary goal was to facilitate students learning and mastery of the course material.
I really enjoyed this class. Marjorie is very thorough, as making you understand the material. And she'll offer assistance, all you need to do is ask!!!!
Everything. Very well rounded course.
I liked the coding walk-through in class. I could ask questions about a specific line of code I am looking at in front of me.
programming
I enjoyed the teaching methods that Prof. Hale-Fishman extended.
everything
The labs were very fun and helpful.
I liked the various labs that we did in this class. We conducted various labs and in class assignments that helped us to better understand how certain things worked.
This course was very hands-on. I liked that
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Not really that I can think of.
The text book for this course is genuinely poor. Unfortunately there are not many options for Visual Basic course material. The text book Farrel's Programming Logic and Design, overly abstracts and adds complexity to material that is relatively straight forward. Students who are exposed to logic and design for the first time are attempting to create a new mental model, those mental models could be more readily constructed from tangible examples, and then developed into generic or abstract components. Literally 20% of the books, is devoted to diagrams, that say "don't do this". A beginning programming student doesn't have any tools in their "design toolbox" so using negation or counter-examples at this point is a grossly inefficient and confusing instructional model. Statistically upwards of 50% of student's wash out of Freshman level, Computer Science classes for multiple reasons, but not the least, because they fail to generate abstract mental models of the material. The Instructional staff at HCC could likely develop an in house curriculum, in 100 pages or less that could cover the same topics in a more efficient manner for students.
I strongly suggest using another textbook for the Visual Basic introduction class. In addition, to introduce modules when building flowcharts, as suggested by the textbook, and not actually use module structures while coding is very confusing to a beginner programmer.
less home work
Books that would better explain writing programs.
none
The books told you more about what not to do than what to actually do. Maybe get better books.
I would not really suggest anything to improve the course. Just a heads up though, next time we have accrediting work to be turned in, atleast give us more than a week to complete the whole thing.
No.
15. Other comments:
I love Marjorie, she is nice and strict on assignments.
I appreciated the fact that Marjorie Hale-Fishman would design computer programs on her own time, so we could work on them if we needed the extra practice. Course and instructor was fantastic.
It is unusual to have the air conditioning turned off for a computer room. It takes a whole day for the room to cool down.
this is for Marjorie hale-fishman
I am eager to be in the spring semester 2014 class.

I really enjoyed your teaching methods. I feel they were effective and helped us learn a lot about the course subject. if you dont understand something youʻll explain it till we do understand it, which was a plus.

Once again a very "Hands-On" Course. I learned a lot.
Prof. Hale-Fishman is a wonderful teacher. I enjoyed all of her classes as she made learning very enjoyable.
I really enjoyed the various labs that we do, it really helped me to better understand the course.
I learned stuff.
learning about hardware
The hands on labs and book work was very helpful and relevant.
this class totally rocked! I have gained so much, by taking this course. And with an instructor like Marjorie, you can't go wrong. She'll offer help wven when she isn't on campus. Thank you M. Hale-Fishman ;)
The hands-on labs were useful.
The hands on assignments such as taking apart the computer or making cables were much more helpful than just reading about it in a textbook.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?

14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
The material to be covered on the exams could be communicated better. I was misled a couple times in regards to the format and content that would appear on the exams (to the detriment of my grade).
I didn't like the format of some of the quizzes, and once the format was changed unexpectedly.

I just did not like nor did I agree at all with the text book. My over ten years of retail and service experience was a complete waste of time if the text book used is to be considered "fact".
Although the book had a lot of important information, I thought the book was confusing not in small sections but noticeably in three chapters.
Update the textbook.
15. Other comments:
Marjorie Hale-Fishman is an excellent instructor. She teaches her students and trains them to improve their knowledge and skills in IT. She is one of the few instructors that will help you to brainstorm ideas and work with you until you understand the concepts. She does not conduct her class as if it is an online class, meaning students need to teach them selves; students have the book and each other to depend on to complete the course. She teaches us and we have the other alternatives to add to our education. I can not express how important Marjorie Hale-Fishman is to the success of my educational goals and continuing as a student at Hawaii Community College. She is the pillar that makes this major a success. She provides students with IT knowledge, an excellent teaching style, and moral support to continue and strive on to graduate. Thank you.

It was really good to learn how to use Microsoft Office.
Really liked the overall criteria of the course. I was familiar with microsoft programs prior to attending the class but with not the programs that were up to date and current. I was amazed at how much the programs overall changed this class was a great way to learn new techniques and formulas to improve my work within the programs. The professor did a great job instructing and providing assistance, it was a pleasure being in her class.
This was a great course and has a great teacher. She was very clear and easy to understand as well as very helpful, patient, and understanding!
The last minute addition of a text book was a unexpected and unwelcome expense, especially for $100.
The instructor had a very good and positive veiw on everyone in the class. Also she is understanding and helpful.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
No
Spend more time on Access, as that is the hardest program to use.
Keep up the great work!
No
The office apps text book and the technology text book did not relate well. Maybe focus on 50% of the most important topics in the technology text book, and expand additional time on more relavent examples from the office apps text book.
None, she does a very good job at teaching.
15. Other comments:
Very well taught course. Instructor clearly knows the ins and out of the subject.
Marjorie was very helpful and responsive at any time of the day.
Very fun class. Marjorie was very understanding about me having to work and I was able to turn in assignments via email.
Would reccommend this professor to anyone looking to take computer science classes.
Thank You
Great lecturer. Appreciated that questions were answered to the best of their knowledge. Only refered to text book when needed and not as an immediate response. Lecturer definitely adds value to the money I've spent.

Great all around course.
anything hands on
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Update the textbook.
Books could be update some since this is the IT field and it is always changing.
kinda outdated material that we covered.
Change up the assignments, book work is good but tends to be repetitive.
It might help to change this to a pre-req with ITS-104 as two assignments involved work opening the computer. The teacher was more than willing to help with opening the computer so this is a very small suggestion.
no
not really

Homework was challenging at times and the book we used was very useful and informative
The textbook was better than average for ITS courses.
The book was helpful and the assignments helped me grasp the material.
Great programming course!
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Maybe show more way to do the programs. It seems like when we learn a certain way, we never want to change from that.
no
15. Other comments:
Marge is a excellent instuctor, I have been privilaged to have her as a instructor for several years, her method of instruction and knowledge is a real asset to this school. I always share with other people that they shgould transfer to HCC to enroll in her classes. She obvoiusly cares about the students and their progress, although she gives a lot of work assignments I can now see how they are paying off.
Marjorie is great!!!

14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Get a different textbook. The current textbook is poorly written (unclear prose).
The computers used were dated and need to be changed out for newer technology. The lab environment was inconsistent between all lab computers even though the same software was used to create each virtual envirnment.
Change the book. It gave the wrong directions for assignments and the information was a bit jumbled with irrelevant facts.
Get a new book !!! The book we used sucked big time. The instructions for the activities were very vague. And the multiple choice questions were so frustrating and confusing at times.
None
no

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I have learned much from this teacher in this subject and all the classes I have taken from her in the last year and a half. She has much work experiences to share that supplements her teaching of the subjects. I find these experiences shared to be worthwhile in combination with the topics of the subject. She is very helpful when I need help understanding a theory or action that is taken as being taught in the text. Her teaching style is better than any teacher in the IT major. I hope to have more classes from her over the next year.
I like the study guides
The course information is interesting and I can apply what I was taught in my personal life and my career. Useful information that I can continue to use, modify and upgrade with the fast pace development of information technology.
The most useful work involved online research (such as an activity requiring us to research different remote desktop applications) and hands-on activities (such as one where we layout and plan the different physical security considerations for information assets in a building).
What can I say, Marge has been a real positive asset in my life, she has motivated me even on my down days. I wish that every student could experience the teaching style and care she puts into her job
I enjoyed the way Marjorie was able to present the information in different ways to the class. I enjoyed learning about Information Security but could have learned a lot more if they had a better book.
Simply the best. Our instructor simply is the best there is. she goes out of her way regularly for her students and taugh us so much about a difficult subject.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Keep her as the instructor of this class. Students will learn more from her!
Longer lead times on group assignments.
change the book
My main problem was with the textbook. The text was far too focused on unnecessary details about the history of different information security technologies, and not enough about the real-world implications of implementing them, about protection from an evolving set of threats, etc. Please use a different textbook, especially one that focuses more on research and hands-on activities. Also, please include more hands-on and research activities. Especially when it comes to information security, we will need to be forced to go beyond the text.
One suggestion would be to get a different book to use for the class. I found the book for the class contained to many errors. The group projects could also have been managed a little bit better.
Get a better book. Not very easy to understand, throws a lot of different concepts at you without explaining much. Try to read a chapter and more than likely you will fall asleep.
Change the book maybe as it is a tad long winded and slightly dated material maybe another book in conjunction with this book.
15. Other comments:
i like the instructor, she is nice and willing to help those who are struggling with the course and listen to our moans and complaints.
Marjorie is an excellent instructor. She is always available to her students . She encourages students to stay on task and develop skills to prepare for our career. She helps students to build rapport with each other, team work skills and awareness of networking in the community.
Wish I had More classes with the instructor.

This class was great, Mrs fishmen is a good teacher, works hard to help students. Give her a raise!!$$
As long and painful as the assignments were, I can say that I learned a lot more than I would have expected.
I learned so much from this course that I will share it to everyone who is interested in it. Just the right amount of assignments and projects. Not overwhelming as I thought it would have been before I signed up. Great course!
I liked that the work was very straight forward and Marjorie was able to help both in the classroom as well as at home (emails were answered promptly)
I Really enjoyed doing the work thru for different types of programs in office. It really helped me to get a clear understanding of the program and was very helpful.
Wellpaced- spread out nicely
Marjorie Hale-Fishman is a excellent instructor. She really made the difference.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Overall this class was a great experience. Marjorie made sure to give her students ample time to understand and complete assignments. She knows the topic well and uses teaching methods that support the texts used in the course. She was readily available by email to answer questions or offer advice on assignments.
This is my first class ever on programming and Marjorie made it it very fun.
she made the class interesting. Very helpful explaining each section.
I appreciated explanations that illustrated how concepts were applied to real world applications.
Marjorie Hale Fishmanʻs teaching techniques are excellent and I will retain more information from this class versus two of my other classes. I also appreciate how she was able to relate we were learning in class and how it will apply in a workplace setting.
Marjorie is an exceptional instructor and asset to the school, this is my third class with her and I look forward to taking the 118 class next semester with her.
I learned a lot in this class and I found it enjoyable mainly because this course is what I was interested in and because the instructor explained it in an understandable way.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Near the end of the semester, in a lecture for a different class, Marjorie spoke about the importance of "segregating trainees by knowledge/skill level" and to "suggest enrolling in a hiher level seminar to trainees who ask advanced questions during a beginner-level session." However, having a student in this class that holds a higer-level degree in computer science, his advanced questions/comments/suggestions were not deferred to after-hours disscussion. These questions were instead discussed in class, potentailly confusing students with advanced topics that were not relevant to the subject matter for the course. My suggestion would be, attempt to cover only ITS-103 topics and realize that first-semester students may be unable to compartmentalize a 300-level course topic discussion in the middle of their 100-level course lecture. Also, try to engage students during lectures. Occasionally I felt that Marjorie would excitedly talk about the topic, not realizing that some students may have been left behind. A measurable example would be lectures that had been assigned two class days on the sylabus but were completed in less than one full class period. Later, assignement deadlines were extended due to multiple questions about the assignment, even though the second lecture date was used as a work-day. Also, when doing labs in front of the class, Marjorie would simultaniously plan, design, and type in the program code at about 15 WPM. anybody that types less than 20 WPM (by touch;never looking at the keys) canʻt keep up with the typing, let alone be listening to the logic-planning and explainations. [I donʻt remember what the typing requirement is for the IT Program but my point is that sometimes a professor needs to stop and let everyone catch up, and watch for blank "Iʻm typing what shes saying but I have no clue why" stares in the classroom.
i really didnʻt like the visual logic book because the commands used is different from the visual basic book and i would confuse myself which commands to use at times
Not really
15. Other comments:
I made plenty of suggestions to improve this course, but keep in mind these suggestions are to bring the class from its current 8.5 up to a perfect 10! Again, Marjorie was always happy to answer questions during class, at the end of class, during office hours, or by email.
Marjorie is the best at what she does. I want to be like her.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I appreciated that the instructional content and activities were relevant to real work environments.
Assignments and such were simple and easy to do because of the instructorʻs effective instructions and help.
i liked the hands-on projects. I also liked how Marjorie tells stories that relate to what we are learning.
Marge was very helpful and very easy to talk to. She goes over assignments and makes it easier to understand.
I liked the layout of this course. For example lecture first then some days weʻll have lab days. I enjoyed that a lot of the work was independent and we maintain our own work schedule. The hands on labs were fun and good because they were moderate and not to advanced.
I enjoyed learning about hardware.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
The required textbooks were a bit outdated. It would help if they were more current. It would be useful to be able to print out study guide questions. As it now stands the print outs students get to keep provide no context to the original material asked. This is of no use to aid us in our studies.
Not Really
no
Use a better more up to date book
I honestly thought this course would have way more hands on labs. At the beginning of the course I thought we were going to learn how to take a whole computer a part then put it back together. So a way to improve this course is to have more hands on labs because it gives you more experience and also more enjoyable.
NEW UPDATED BOOK !!!!!!

none
very helpful teaching style, she is always willing to help you along.
The group projects were especially helpful in thinking critically about helping computer users in the field
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Keep the instructor and her style of teaching

Not TOO difficult at all. I enjoyed the class.
This was my favorite class of the semester!
I learned an incredible amount of applicable information that I am estatic. Marjorie is a great teacher who is most earnest and goes the extra mile for her students. SHE IS THE BEST!! Without her encouragement and patient teaching style I would not have made it through the semester. Mahalos Marjorie
I liked how we got to work at our own pace when it came to the computer works.
Everything was extremely interesting and I was suprised i liked the class as much as i did. I had a Great Instructor.
Too much work work thruʻs, and labs.
everything was hands on and fun.
I liked this course because it thought me more about computers and the way around them.
I liked that the course gave a a fundamental overview of microsoft programs so it made it easier for students to there homework or run a business or anything.
I enjoyed this class. It helped me learn more material about computers. I enjoy being able to do the hands on labs in the textbook. The textbook is very useful.
Having hands on work and being able to get experience on how to work with the programs.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
I feel like a lot of the tests had some questions that weren't really relevant like a lot of the abbreviations I didn't feel I needed.
The keys names and the words that are to be type should stand out by either italicizing or making them bold. Otherwise it is a bit ambiguous. I think that Marjorie could improve her teaching simply by demonstrating Excell and Access on the screen for everyone to see. Perhaps she could show us one function each day. That would be a big help.
I thought the course was good as it was.
None.
Too much work. Especially at the end of the year...
Too much work and little time. ease down on work.
I feel this course does not need any improvments.
No.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
in this class i leard more than in any other class ive takin in the past.
The only problem was the poor condition of the hardware in the classroom. A great deal of time was wasted trying to keep the computers up and running.
I liked that the teacher gives feedback on all work done. I liked that the teacher helped whenever possible.
all of them
great teacher, very well prepared and knowledgeable
What I liked about the course was especially helpful when Marjorie tied into the assignment activities that helped to grasp the formulas that was presented in the textbook. By giving real examples in projects or activities for class involvement helped me to learn concepts and formulas much easier.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
mybe start using google doc to share the files with the students. and that way they cant lose them or say that they didnʻt get them.
None.
none
15. Other comments:
This is one of my favorite classes that was not a theatre class. i think that they should have more money for new computers and other things that they might need. for the IT classes that they teach.
Keep up the good work!!
I feel that we, students, never got our moneys worth. It wasn't the teacher's fault. Who to blame? That's not the focus. It's more of how we could implement what we have and what we could have improved. Nevertheless, Marjorie exucuted her work task by helping us understand the software program. I would have wish that we could receive the full potential of this class.
one of the few classes that actually teaches you something useful.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I like the way Marjorie teaches the course. I learned a lot from the information she provied the class and the examples. She is organized and on time and this helps me to be a better student. I like the visual basic book and be able to use the visual basic program at home.
Everything
learned a lot of programming knowledge. Awesome course
Really enjoyed the different programming assignments we got to work on.
Labs were great practice and the opportunity to have lab hrs in class helped to get the help I needed. I appreciate the patience and understanding Marjorie has shown as she went over and beyond to help me accomplish my goals to complete the course. Thankyou. Marjorie has been very encouraging, and at the very end when i needed it most... she gave us a pep talk at the end to boost our energy from all the stress from the semester ending.
making programs that works
the exercises were very helpful and of course the teacher was so helpful that this class was great.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
I would like to take the third programming class from Marjorie. She has a style that I am comfortable with and so much information to offer the students with the added information from the books. I believe it would be a good idea to take the third programming class from Marjorie since there are 3 sections. Thank you.
None
need more time for final chapter on arrays
None overall a great class
none... I'm very happy knowing she is scheduled to be here in the near future semesters while i'm planning on completing my courses needed. Thankyou , thankyou ;)

none it was great
15. Other comments:
Marjorie is an excellent instructor. She has taught me so much information in the ITS 118 course. She provides good instruction and lessons with the course. She provides her students with a good foundation. She uses a variety of was to educate her class using universal design to provide a great education. Marjorie also brings with her years of experience and knowledge that she applies to her course that I would not find in a book. She motivates the class and keeps moral up, she knows the content of the course can be overwhelming and does not want us to give up.
Marjorie is an excellent teacher. She recognizes the individuals that learn things from a visual point of view and attempts to include that within her presentations of class lectures and actual live examples of the teaching materials. I have learned much from her as to other professors. Keep her in the computer technology instructor list. She is like a walking encyclopedia for programming knowledge and helps student learn with her teaching style.
Overall I think I learned a lot in this class.
God bless you for sharing, and thank you to the University for giving Marjorie this opportunity which has been an inspiration to us all.
I would like to see other programming classes to help us get ready to enter the programing world

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I really liked the ending where I was able to learn command line and linux terminal language. I feel like a geeky nerd being able to nagivate the computer the old fashioned way.
Extra Labs in class on topics that were a little more challenging, helped me to feel comfortable enough to move ahead.
the ability of the Proffessor to adjust the required course materials to make the class work was greatly appreciated. She put a lot of extra work into this class just to make it work. This was needed since the lack of the proper hardware to run the software correctly made the class harder then needed.
none
great teacher love taking her classes look forward to more classes
poor classroom equipment, non-functional omputers.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
NEW Computer hardware needed to run virtualization for two OS successfully. Please invest more money in more powerful computers to be able to handle virtualization. Beginning of class was trial and error learning process, but I was able to get my hands on a reliable machine, others in my class were not so lucky.
yes! NEW Computers!!! Most of the work was DELAYED due to computers that were not usable from running too slow to freezing up and going down!
replace the exsisting computers to allow for the use of hardware virtualuization. This is needed to run any windows 7 computer in a virtual enviroment with Vitrual PC 2007. Or select a different Linux that will work with the present Hardware configuration.
newer pc for labs
none
Please assign workstations that are more capable of running Windows 7 and Microsoft Virtual PC simultaneously, or allow the class to set up the workstations for dual-booting. Far too much time was wasted waiting working with those with PCs which were largely incapable of doing what was needed.
15. Other comments:
Thank you Marjorie for sharing your experience/knowledge. You are very appreciated and I'm looking forward to seeing you in the next semester!!!!
This class was a test in frustration and patience. The inability to be able to have computers that didnt work and you would try to run Virtual PC but after 22 attempts and still no sucess in any given day for one machine is really a ridiculous situation. This caused the class to spend and waste time, when we could have been using this time to learn. When a student walks into class the computers should work That is why we pay for these clases. Thankfully Marjorie put in extra work and really is the only reason this class was even able to be attempted. Those that read this should understand the extra hours and time she put in to this class just to make it work. She is a credit to the education community, since some professors would have just shrugged and not cared but she showed sincere dedication and commitment to her proffesion as well as her students. Thanks Marjorie for all your hard work.you will be missed.
I enjoyed learning the concepts from this class. I now have a virtual machine set up on my own laptop. Will keep trying to master Fedora with it installed on my machine.
school is lucky to have her

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
i really started college again to learn these programs. But while working my way up to it, i began to be scared to take the class because after learning that it was all 4 programs at once! But it was a great experience, and i'm glad i went through it! Marjorie was a very helpful && patient teacher with lots of knowledge on the programs. I have downloaded the programs at home && am very excited to play around && explore the many great things i can do with them!
Some of the things that I enjoyed most about this class were the daily assignments. I learned a lot about excel and access on Microsoft word that I did not know before. By learning these skills I am better prepared to work in a real life settings.
where informative but could only do it in class
I liked everything especially the project we did on Lisbon. We (group members) had never done powerPoint at all, and after learning how to do it in this class we all did okay on our project. Majorie is a super insstructor. She made enjoy this class instead of being bores. She was there 24-7 when I didn't understand the work. She took time to over with me the problems I was having. I recommend everybody to take a class with Majorie.
I learned power point and how fun it is to use this program, I learned that excel is very complicating however Mrs. Fishman did an excellent job assuring me that excel is a beneficial for my future for accounting or bills.
I really love this course because it taught me how to use all the office application such as words, excel, powerpoint and access. Marjorie was really helpful and fun to work with. Great job Marjorie :-)
doing the assignments online with my it lab was very useful and efficent
Marjorie was my favorite teacher. She helped everyone and was not fake. She had a great personality and is a genuine person who enjoyed her students and job. She returned emails promply Thank You!!!
I liked working at my own pace and especially liked that we were learning Microsoft 2010.
this course was very heplful to me, because it made me more sharp in my computer skills.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Maybeb give a choice to the student to just take one or two program each... i know it'll take longer && need more teacher time that we are scarce of, but that wud be cool to break in half again just to get to concentrate on each program more with a teacher there...
N/A
get rid of the online type of work if i wanted to learn it on line then why am i here stiing in a class i could be at home
Make the IT lab more understandable any user friendly. Also make it more compatible for home use.
yeah get rid of the IT Lab. Sometimes there is not enough time to do the skill based or grader in the IT and I would have to submit my undone. Furthermore, there are short cut's to exiting out of the program however the IT will mark me as "incorrect". Which I believe is ridiculous getting something marked wrong for doing it a faster way.
The testing techniques. It was the computers way or no way
None.
none
15. Other comments:
I highly recommend this course to anyone who is interested about learning Microsoft word and its other functions.
the instructor was very good with helping us... but the online aspect forced me to only do the work on line
Mrs. Fishman assured me that the book is self explanatory and that the tools the book provides will come in handy in the near future. Yeah keep her as an instructor for this course.
I dont have any other comments besides can Marjorie continue to teach BUSN 151 next semester.. thanks
enjoyed the class learned alot
I am extremely sorry to not see her as an instructor for BUSN anymore. ?!

I liked learning all the different programs. It was very beneficial for me.
I enjoy working with computers so I like pretty much everything about this course.
The ability to really apply myself and learn today's technology and tricks of the trade.
I like the myitlab program. It was fun.
I liked that I had set dates when assignments were due because it kept me on track. If for some reason I was unable to finish anything by the due date, I liked that I was still able to submit the assignment.
Great class wonderful teacher the is easy to learn from.. Would take class from her again..

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
The most enriching part of this class were the lectures because Marjorie brought in so many current topics relating to the technological world today. It was eye opening and informative, I feel like I am a better computer-user because of this.
I liked the overall class. I would recommend it to anyone because the book is really clear on instructions and sheʻll help you figure out thing that you donʻt understand
I liked the general environment of the class. When I first walked in it was apparent that whatever we did it was going to be fairly computer intensive. Indeed it was, but not in the sense that I predicted. I assumed that it was all going to be rigidly planned and regulated, but while there were deadlines to meet and plans to comply with, myself along with all the other students were given the option of doing the work whenever we felt like doing so. As long as they got done on time there were no problems. I think that such a free flowing environment is an important goal for all teachers to stride for as it encourages students to think for themselves and accomplish things in ways that work for them; aka: self improvement and future preparation; letting students discover what works and what does not. Such is the definition of education.
I found the ICS 101 course highly useful and informative for tasks that I can perform in and out of class. Professor Hale-Fishman is a great teacher and takes time to aid her students with whatever problem they may have. She gives adequate time to complete your work, and constant reminders when they are due. All in all I highly recommend that you take her class if you are interested in learning more on computers and the programs you can utilize on them.
I liked how the course was well balanced with lectures and hands-on work
Very informative about Microsoft Office which is very important to know how to operate.
I thought the text book, though expensive, was very good at walking syudents through the steps during the work through. Lacked a lot of explination for the labs. The assingments were fun, exciting, and challenging.
The pacing of the class was spot on because it forced me to keep doing the work and to keep up with our assignments.
The work was a good amount.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Only that some of the due date are a little confusing.
n/a
I have no ways to imporve.
The text book slacked off on explination for the labs making it a challenge to go back into the work through and determin how to connect the steps to the new material presented in the labs. The pace of the class was extreemly fast and covered way to much material for one class.
I would have liked to see a little more emphasis on Excel and Access to help prepare for other classes which use them (such as Accounting and Database Programming).
15. Other comments:
Mahalo for being a great teacher!!
Very helpful class.
I really appreciate Marjorie. She was extreemly patient, understanding, and flexable with me - even when I was being a grump. I disliked the idea of two,or more, professors making-up the test and quizʻs. I sincerly feel that each class is different, and each teacher knows their class and what is appropriate for that class, therefore I feel that each professor should make-up the testʻs and quizʻs for their classʻs.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Majorie is an excellent instructor. She is willing and able to assist me whenever I do not understand the lesson or need further explanation for an understanding of the subject. It was all new to me, but she helped me to acquire meaningful knowledge of this subject. I want to take more classes from her instead of from Mrs. Brown
programming part
well prepared teacher
I like everything about this course. it helped me understand the basic of programming. i enjoy doing it.
It was good to learn how to create and troubleshoot computer programs.
The course work is challenging but Marjorie is an excellent instructor and she breaks the process of programming down in order for her students to learn how to program and understand the complexity of programming.
Loved the presentation AND the practice/examples given! Great work ;) Thanx for sharing your knowledge!!! xoxox's...!
that the teacher was very helpful and available to help us in a course that was very difficult. She was also able to make changes in the course to accomidate the class and students.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
I think the course needs a better book that gives more examples of programming, the syntax errors, more explanation of commands and usages. Sometimes I found it hard to do the labs because examples were not present in the course handbook or lab book. That would be a great improvement.
none
I wish Marjorie would teach all three of the programming courses. Her experience in programming is evident in the difficult components she teaches her students.
...
no, the only thing i would suggest is that Mrs. Hale-Fishman should be the teacher. she knows her stuff and is a great teacher
15. Other comments:
I love Majorieʻs teaching style. Keep up the good work.
good
Marjorie sets a high standard as an instructor that should be a model for excellence and ethics. I have been fortunate to have her as my instructor.
Thank You for offering this course and more! I appreciate it very much.

Hands on
the course was good. not great but then I am not a big fan of the CompTIA exams system
It was good to learn about the hardware of the computer and how to fix them.
I liked being able to take apart a computer and do hands-on work with the hardware.
great teacher
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
more hands on
get more updated material
Please use a textbook that shows greater emphasis on topics that we as aspiring Techs will be working with in the future. For example, Windows 7 and/or 8, implementing and supporting hardware for Cloud Computing, less emphasis on obsolete technologies like floppy drives and old RIMMs (such legacy technologies can probably be looked up as needed in the field).

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
This course is really interesting and will help alot in the future.
I liked how Marjorie always has an open mind and she cares for us as students because she makes assignments and quizzes easy for us to handle because we have more then one class were taking.
It was very challenging, but I learned a lot during this semester. Mrs. Fishman is a very helpful, nice and a good teacher that helps you in every way possible. She seems to go way and beyond for her students and that is a good feeling that motivates me to do a good job in her class and get all the work done. Great Job! Mrs. Fishman. Have a great Summer!
I was able to learn a lot with the book that we used for the course. Marjorie was also a huge help in my understanding. Anytime that I had a question she was always there to answer them and help with my work. She never said "I don't know" or "I'll have to get back to you", she was always able to answer my questions right away.
The work is that you work at your own pace.
Learning the basics, for example, all the assignments we did in class.
I liked the independence we had. We could work on our assignments at our own pace & Marjorie was always more than happy to help us when we got stuck on a section. I also like the fact that we had a choice to work out of the book or the MyIT lab program, because the book was easier for me.
What I liked about this course is the assignments and test...that may sound weird, but I did enjoy the work it.
I enjoyed the pace. I didn't feel rushed.
marjorie is a very well organized teacher which made my learning a whole lot easier.
You were on you own
I learned so much about the software with the assistance and instruction from Marjorie Hale-Fishman. She can explain in detail abouth why the a problem has occured or which application works best for a project. She also trouble-shoots errors in the book for students.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
No
nothing
I think she covers it all. Great Job!
No.
None.
The only thing I can think of, but I know they are changing it for next semester, is that they should use the Microsoft 2010 version. It was kinda of hard to do my homework at home because in class they have 2007 version but yet it was a great challenge for me. I think that every time that Microsoft office comes out with a new version, the school(s) should change also, it would make things a lot more easier.
Allow her to teach more courses in business technology.
none.
none
The course was taught well and look forward to taking more courses from HawCC with Marjorie Hale-Fishman.
15. Other comments:
I wouldnt recommend this course to anyone
Does a Great Job, very pleasant teacher to have.
I enjoy having Marjorie as a teacher and I would love to take any class that she would be instructing!
Marjorie is a great teacher. She is very helpful and would explain at any time if I did not understand a question or assignment. I would be more then willing to have Marjorie as a teacher again.
Marjorie is one of the "BEST" instructors I had so far for in taking business classes. She is very helpful and patient when you ask for help with your work.
None
I have had many instructors during the course of my education and Marjorie Hale-Fishman stands out as an educator. She has high standards for her students as well as herself. She sets the bar high with the quality of instuction, teaching style and outcome for which students walk away from this course with a wealth of knowledge. If I were to grade Marjorie Hale-Fishman she gets an "A". We are fortunate to have here and I look forward to her return in 2011-2012.

I enjoyed the hands on learning in this class. It was easy to complete assignments on the computer after watching her lectures and presentations on the chapter by power point.
lots of repition to lear the application.
it was all relay good information to know. Now i can do a lot more stuff with all the Office programs.
I got to learn more about things on the comupters
Every thing. I like working on the labs.
I liked the prowerpoint presentations. and the textbook work was good to show you the programs.
I liked everything about this class. I learned so many new things about computer programs that I never knew. Marjorie was an excellent teacher and I would quickly take another class from her if I needed to take another computer class. She was always willing to help me whenever I needed to and was very patient and understanding in the way she taught and interacted with me.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
None.
N/A
The class was great, i would not change anything about the class.
not really
Perfect
have two points of view on the side of computers, have a Mac/Apple side and a PC side so students can do the course work regardless of the type of computer they have. I have a Mac/Apple computer and I was not able to figure out the different configurations of the programs that is was using.
I enjoyed the class just the way it is!
15. Other comments:
I didn't like the fact that I needed to buy a $100 textbook for this course that will be obsolete next semester.

Cheaper books would be nice, I spent about 200 dollars one books for this class
It is a great class!
Didn't like the proram Access at all!!! There are to many things to do in that program and didn't really understand the uses for some of the functions in access. but I guess it was alright. Overall I enjoyed the class and she was a great help with the programs when we had questions.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
This book was terrible. It was difficult to follow and the flow was terrible. The only good thing about it... the instructor went through the material prior to assigning it to students. She was aware of mistakes in the book and let us know where we would experience problems.
Learned a lot, despite a textbook that was not very well-organized and often not easy to use
Enjoyed learning about the different commands in DOS and Fedora Core 4. Also liked learning about how to set up Virtual PC and enable parallel Operating Systems.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Change the book.
Find a better text
May want to spend a little more time on batch/script files. Maybe some type of group project with them?? Really enjoyed learning how to create them.

Well this course has helped get really familiarized with the keys on the keyboard. Now I can type pretty fast without looking at the keyboard by memorization.
Helped me improve my skills
I liked that the course was online and i had a great instructor if i ever needed help.
I enjoyed this class with her. She is a wonderful instructor and I would love to have her again as a teacher.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
She was there to assist me with all of my questions and was able to answer them right away.
Marjorie Hale-Fishman is an excellent teacher. She reviewed each assignment and did it herself as well and came back to class and gave us her input on how it should be done. If the book went a longer way she taught us the easier way. She is an excellent teacher. Great job Marjorie!!!
Everything
I Like this course, because Mrs. Marjorie gave us great step by step learning to help us get through assignments.
I really enjoyed how easy it was to follow along with assignments, she always provided help to students and she always had alternative ways to complete assignments
What I like about this course that it taught me a lot more about Microsoft office. The assignments were good and pretty much self explainable. I can't wait to take BUSN 151 =0)
I liked that it really helped me improve on my computer skills
At first I didn't think I could handle this course, but Mrs. Hale-Fishman did such a great job I'm enrolling in another course of hers, for sure.She 's thorough and concise with the way she teaches.
I would think we need more time to finish all my work.

everything was great!
This course helped me further understand how to best utilize microsoft office 2007. The programs are quite difficult to understand by yourself, so as a student, I would recommend taking this class to any of my fellow students.
Very interesting subject matter, which Marjorie Hale-Fishman presents in a clear manner with real-life examples. Each quiz is tailored to stress actual work-related situations that we will experience. This is a great improvement over only following the publisher's on-line program.
I like Ms. Fishman and the course helped me brush up on the stuff I already know. I learned alot from her. Very cool class.
The teacher plus learning new things from the class work.
i liked doing group activities and discussions that marjorie did to teach the material to us

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
there should be more help in understanding some of the course contents
Good class all the way round. Ms. Hale-Fishman knows her stuff, and did an excellent job of sharing that knowledge with her students.
I knew how to do most of the stuff, but mrs.fishman helped me to really understand and utilize the digital tools. Always very helpful wonderful teacher
Excellent course! I have used Microsoft Windows for years, but now I really know how to create quality products.
The course its self was rather basic and most of the basics I knew already, so I had expected to be bored with this class.I was not however bored and was surprised in how much more I know about the Microsoft office suit. Should I ever need these tools in the future I believe that I am sufficiently ready to tackle most tasks.
Vry organized course. Assigment due dates were fair and clear.
I enjoyed the exchange with the teacher and the lab work the most. The class was very enjoyable and would recomend it to others
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?

NA
nothing
Nothing. Mrs. Hale-Fishman did a great job in teaching this class.
I wouldn't change/ improve anything.
I would not change nothing.
I wouldn't change or improve anything.
I wouldn't change anything as I felt Marjorie was very well prepared and very detailed in teaching and showing us how to figure out problems step by step. She moved through the chapters at a reasonable pace and made sure everyone understood what to do before moving to the next chapter.
a. write out the formulas a little more clear. I believe it was the textbook that was making the problems confusing. b. Use a different or more up-dated textbook
maybe take a little more time to show how to do some problems. I think she went over the different problems a little faster than I wanted her to. She would write the example on the board, then go directly into explaining it. She didn't really give us much time to write the example down. So we'd have to write and listen at the same time, to me, that was pretty hard. Then I would get confused on how to do the problem.
20. What do you think of the teacher and his/her teaching methods?
Good.
She has good teaching methods and I think she captures the students attention with her humor and overall persona.
Great, she's good at helping you understand the subject in a way thats not boring.
great
I think her teaching methods are great. She does well at explaining problems, and she doesn't move on if anyone of us are struggling.
I think her teaching methods were very helpful to understanding the material presented. The pace was excellent and she made sure everyone understood the material before moving ahead.
Mrs. Hale-Fishman teaching methods are awesome, she takes the time to explain each problem step by step and dont move on until everyone in the class understands. She has the best teaching methods for all students. :)
Teaching methods are really good. I like that we were allowed to have a formula sheet for some of the tests. That was really helpful.
I really like her teaching methods as she makes sure everyone understands things before moving on to the next chapter. She would also do a few problems with us together as well as on our own to assure that we know how to work through them.
I believe that her teaching method is good. She explains the problems well and relates real-life matters to the corresponding lessons.
21. Has he/she contributed to your general knowledge or to learning job skills?
Yes.
yes
Yes, I may not remember every little detail when this class is over but there are things I feel I learned that will better prepair me for....well, knowing how to not only handle money but to understand how big the role of math is in running a business.
yes. very much so.
Definitely. Math isn't my strong point and this course definitely helped me feel more knowledgeable and comfortable with it.
YES!
Yes.
Yes, she has helped to refresh me on my math which I always have difficulty with. Also being a single mom with an intermediate student and an elementary student it helps to know that I can help with homework freely and understand what I'm doing as well.
yes.
yes
22. Other comments:
NA
She is an excellent teacher..... :)
Marjorie is very helpful whether it is in class or through email. I could always email her anytime of the day when I needed help and she would respond quickly to my needs and describe how to do it step by step.
very nice and understanding teacher. Not too many of these teachers at the college!

I would improve on more group critical thinking on which it help me alot to understand the subject.
No changes to improve it. She teaches the class well.
This teacher knows what she is doing, so don't change anything.
The only thing I wish that was different, was the class time.
Almost everthing was good about this cousre. I liked it and it help me improve areas were i was lacking skill at.

I think that her teaching methods was effective
Mrs. Fishman, does a great job in the way she teaches this class. Very interesting and it makes sense as far as whats happening in my life. I can relate to her teaching methods.
She teaches well until we understand and if we don't she explains futhermore.
I thought it was pretty cool that a book and its assignments actually helped me grow as a student.
I thought the teaching methoda of this tacher was very helpful. i thought it was interesting that she use different ways of teaching the class.
I really have to give it to her since she always stands in front of the podium and teach the class the whole time. Really good at presenting the content at a timely fashion. The activities that she sets up are good too. I was really involved.
great.
21. Has he/she contributed to your general knowledge or to learning job skills?
I will use the skills and knowledge that I have been taught. This teacher is great and smart. I loved this class and went to it everyday because I was learning so much.
Yes.
She has contrbuted ways to manage myself out there in society and at home.

Absolutely. This course is supposed to help me survive through college and the things that she has taught me will one day save my life.
agreed.
22. Other comments:
Thank you very much, you have been a role model and inspiration in my life. I will take what you taught me and use it daily. I really loved going to this class and will miss it.
I would recommend this class, along with the instructor to anyone who needs to take this course. This is a very good course to take. It helps motivate you, find your weaknesses, what you need to change in your life as well as your behavoir to become a successful person. I highly commend Mrs. Fishman for doing a great job. It was never a dull moment. Every minute in her class was well worth learning. Keep it up! Great!
Thank you very much!!
i would recomend this class to anyone.
The course depends on how the student puts it. Once an instructor shows the content and is true to it, the student can fully understand if they choose to follow it.
great class, easy to do work, and good ennvironment.

N/A
The text book needs to be updated. Nobody uses Windows 98 anymore.
course was good but the book was out dated and we were learning about computers that are no longer used.
Nothing it was over all a good class.
The course materials desperately need to be updated. We live in the age of Windows Vista and Windows 7. Windows 8 is a little over a year away. Instructional emphasis should not be placed on Windows 9x/2000/ME. Curriculum should be adjusted to promote fluency in XP, Vista, and Windows 7
20. What do you think of the teacher and his/her teaching methods?
Marjorie Hale-Fishman is a very thorough and detailed instructor. She considers all aspects and possibilities when answering the students questions. Also, she truly does give the students all the information that is covered in the exams over the course of the semester. Not that the exams are easy, but there is no asymmetry of information when it comes to the exams.
good, could use a little more structure
Really good she did a vary good job on teaching us how to do something and if we didn't know how to do to she would wait till we all got it.
Good. Kept my attention.
Her teaching methods were a lot better than the previous instructor that taught this course
The Professor's teaching methods are diverse and well rounded. She didn't spend too much time with powerpoint presentations, and instead relied a great deal on her own notes and experiences to instruct the class. Moreover, she offered valuable insights into known issues with the various topics being covered and tried to update the antiquated information to modern standards as best she could.
Professor Hale-Fishman is a wonderful teacher. She is organized and always prepared for instruction. She goes above and beyond as an instructor.
21. Has he/she contributed to your general knowledge or to learning job skills?
She has helped me to see that when troubleshooting I need to consider what the user is capable of doing. Therefore, I need to ask the right questions with the user in mind.
yes, i know more then i did before but i should have learned a little more then i did, probably my fault i could have been more motivated.
Yes.
Yes, she has.
Yes
She has been effective in teaching me the course subject and useful and efficient job skills. She is experienced as an instructor and career. I have learned so much about batch files and scripts, Fedora 4 (Linux), DOS, XP operating system and much more.
22. Other comments:
good, job. thanks.
Overall, the class design is great, just in desperate need of an update.
Hawai'i Community College and students are fortunate to have Professor Marjorie Hale-Fishman as an instructor. She goes through the lessons and trouble shoots. If there is an error in the text she makes the correction. This prevents frustration for the students and we learn the process better because we are executing the procedure the correct way initially. I hope she teaches more of the required course subjects. She is a role model that I wish other professors would look at as a mentor.
