13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I liked that Ms Fishman was willing to help me whenever I needed it. She is a good teacher.
Excellent instructor. would love to take a course from her again
The knowledge gained is very useful
She was always prepared and layed out the requirements very clearly. She always had a great attitude and treated everyone well. It was obvious that she was well versed in her subject and knew how to teach it so we retained the most information possible.
The end of the year power points presentations were my favorite. It was nice to see each others completed projects.
It was very straight-forward.
Great class. Loved how straight forward everything was. I wish every class was like that
I enjoyed the fact that we had done all independent projects.
I liked learning the Microsoft Office products.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
The only complaint I have is the course required two books and both are extremely expensive.
Having the class more than just two days a week would be nice.
Have the research paper due earlier in the semester like right after the Word portion or right after Spring break. The course work piled up at the end with the Power Point assignments and project due at about the same time.
15. Other comments:
Thank you for all of your wonderful work. You were extremely patient and understanding with all of us and we appreciate your effort. I learned so much.
Thank you so much, Marjorie.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Hands On Activities, Lectures were informative and information was very well explained.
Many laughs were had.
We had class time to work on in class projects and homework.
I think the instructor makes or kills the course. It's always great to feel that the instructor WANTS to be there... Not just showing up for a paycheck. Also, it's nice to know that the instructor has some background in Computers, but not just book background but job experience. I think Marjory is one the best instructors the IT department has.
Hands on activities were very helpful in course use
This course was fun and interactive. The lab work gave you real world experience on how to approach a technical computer problem and how to research the web for appropriate answers. Her lectures are also fantastic as she uses the course material supplied to her along with her own real world experiences of being in the business for some time.
I liked all the lab work. Wish there was more.
learning more about how to use the computers more.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
None
Less homework
The book is a bit outdated, but I'm not sure if a more current version exists.
Well, it's a bit outdated. I hate it when someone says well, in Hilo we are so backwards and you will probably see Vista, I'm calling the BS card on that. Vista and XP are no longer being supported by Microsoft. It's true that a lot of places my be using XP, and XP was one of the better OS's MS Put out, Along with 7. But this is a technology course. I think that we should not be testing on or dare I say? Wasting time on Vista's pros and cons. No one uses it... This course really needs to be upgraded to windows 7 / 8 or 10 ... Even 7 is on the chopping block to be no longer supported as much as that saddens me... We all know that hardware and software is never static and those that remain static get left behind.
Need to supply her with more interactive material to use throughout the course. She is using a lot of her own materials because they are not available to her but she knows they are relevant to her course. She should get a substantial raise.
Some discussion on the critical thinking might have helped with understanding some of the material.
none.

Building maintenance should do something about the HVAC system. Seems that the rooms are either freezing or roasting. Makes it hard to concentrate.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
in class hands on days were very helpful for homework and always related to class assignments
It's a difficult course to learn, Methods, Classes, Parameters, etc...etc... But, I think I got grasped most of the concepts. I am not a programmer, But, the terminology and syntax is now a lot less confusing.
The lectures. Learned more from Mrs. Fishman during these periods than I was able to glean from the book most times.
Many laughs, lots of opportunities to learn fun things.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
I think this was a new book offered to the class. I don't know, I think the book is a bit confusing for this. I had hoped that there would have been a lot more GUI than console. And to be honest, mixing the two just made it more difficult. You kinda have to really think differently in one or the other. So, I think the book should have just been on one or the other, not both. Anyway, I believe it would have been better if we could have used the time we had to focus on the MS Visual Studio of the majority of the course. Maybe gone over a few basic thing about what the differences were for command line. Seemed to me it was just getting interesting and than the course was ending already.
If possible, start learning about classes and methods sooner. It was kind of rushed towards the end.
Find a new book. Some chapters were too easy and others seemed like they had 2-3 chapters stuffed into 1. Made the timing of the class difficult for Mrs. Fishman as well as all of us.
More programs during exams, more opportunities for joke programs to be written.
None
15. Other comments:
The book started off fine, but it got really confusing in the end.
Maybe try a different book? Fix the AC.
Fix the HVAC. Uncomfortable
Now to blow my anonymity clear out of the water: O)_(O Do not forget to check my Google Drive for eastereggʻd programs, especially to see if I manage to perfect Fluttershy.cs and Alarm.cs

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
They were clear and easy to understand. Marjorie was more than helpful with feedback and assignments.
There is tons of content, I believe the book we used to cover Microsoft office is a bit too much content.
I Liked that everything was easy to pick up on when effort was put in.
Professor Marjorie is an outstanding professor. She is always willing to help and is always available either via E-mail, after class, before class and during office hours, very flexible. Her upbeat attitude makes class a fun learning environment(:
I liked how it's strictly business, come in, listen to lecture and then work on your individual assignments. I like how Mrs.Fishman was always eager to help me when i needed help, which was all the time.
I liked that we learned 4 different things excel, access, powerpoint, and word
I liked the fact that the lab and lecture was in the same class period. It kept things fresh in the mind when doing assignments. It is a two hour class but in the end it was worth it and we didnʻt always use the two hours of class time
Powerpoint presentation.
Very well presented material and easy to understand projects and lectures
N/a
I really like the fact that this class introduced me, quite intimately, with the Windows Office Suite. After being initially terrified of the year end PowerPoint presentation announced at the beginning of the semester I actually found it quite engaging. Her lectures were also very on point and she was always open to discussion during and after the lecture. Did not like the research paper portion of the class (personal point).
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
To select specific work to do in the course book. Some of the lessons are not used in real life application.
Anything but a paper on "Ethics". Any other subject is fine.
possibly get the library to install access on all of their computers
More time for the presentations! :D
Its about as good as can be
No 8 am classes please
n/a
Need to get the computers on track with course books. The ribbons in most of the Office Suits did not match the course books. Was very frustrating when trying to do the chapter work through. Need to fix that especially since it's not a problem at the other locations. Remove the research paper at the end of the course.
15. Other comments:
The Microsoft Office programs became unactivated on my computer.
Taught me other programs that I were not familiar with.
Marjorie is very knowledgeable and helpful. Very easy to learn from.
Mrs.Fishman is always well prepared and very knowledgeable on the subject, and is always willing to help. We need more teachers like this
Thank you for the input that helped my presentation on my dream vacation to Equestria!

This is one of two classes that I had with Marjorie and I must say she is the type of teacher who inspires you to get to class.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Programming is fun hard to learn on the later half of the semester but fun none the less.
Well.... We did learn the logic of programming.
N/a
Marjorie Hale-Fishman was very informational and was always willing to take time to help you. Marjorie always had ways to break down the assignments to make learning fun and informational. I really hope that I will have her again.
I liked the challenge of doing the lab work. I also like that we had lab time during class to work out our assignments.
Marjorie is always willing to help us and answer our questions. She does demos and also explains the material to us.
Instructor was very helpful and was willing to answer any and all questions asked
Her class was very engaging. The assignments were challenging, but you feel proud when they end up working.
I really enjoyed the logical perspective of this class. Being an IT major this really gave me some insight to what it takes to make all the wonderful applications that we all take for granted. The fact that Marjorie has her own programming company lends a ton of credence to her lectures and advice. Very insightful. Very challenging
N/A
Programs! :D
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
I wouldʻve liked arrays earlier on but since itʻs a late chapter its understandable. I wish I couldʻve spent more time on it.
N/a
None
More extra credit in smaller portions. The work load for this class was appropriate, but a little more reinforcement for work learned would have been great too.
Do more work on the computers. Things often donʻt work properly. Programs have different settings, donʻt work properly, and some arenʻt even valid installations. Lots of bugs and errors, and the computers are sometimes very slow as well.
N/A
Don't cram all of the last assignments towards the end of the semester.
For some reason the class computers seemed to have a constant array of problems, some minor and some major, that can some times be really frustrating. Being as this is an IT class it seems rather odd that some of these problems were no addressed immediately.
Nope
More programs! :D
15. Other comments:
It has been a great class and learning experience. Marjorie always took time to help me even outside of class.
Computers are slow. Half were crashing because they were configured incorrectly. But I think they fixed it somewhat. The projector could be better for an IT room. Seems the projector or screen is fuzzy. Hard to read. Maybe its the low resolution of the unit or an old bulb? Maybe get rid of the Hawaiian Keyboard setting. Yes this is Hawaii but in programming Garbage In is Garbage Out and the Hawaiian keyboard just gets in the way. Make the Keyboard DEFAULT to USA NOT HAWAIIAN.
N/a
Please have her teach more classes! She teaches, not just throws a book at you.
Very enjoyable class.
I love her enthusiasm and professionalism. Keep up the great work!
My personal opinion is that Marjorie is the main reasons most of are staying in the IT program. She is a teacher who gives you inspiration to come to class.
Well as it was my first semester in college the workload was new to me, however the course material was in-fact the most interesting of the IT program. Though learning about a subject I have had no previous knowledge of, was quite a challenge I did learn quite a bit about programming. Despite all the positive talk of the course, I don't think I will be returning to the program next semester as my interest in the subject is minimal. Has nothing to do with the class, I believe Marjorie did a great job!
Now to blow my anonymity way out of the water. PONIES!

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I enjoyed all of Marjorie's lectures, she always has real world experience to talk about and it is always interesting and relevant.
Book was easy to follow. If I missed the class, I could still follow the book and understand the lesson.
Everything
I liked how the hands on lab taught me how to go through the assignments. Since I am a hands on learner it was easier for me to follow. Marjorie is a very good instructor and she motivates the entire class to learn. Even when she knows that students are not making the effort she still has a positive attitude about teaching them.
As always, Marjorie Hale-Fishman is there to help as we learn the course materials, Her courses are always well laid out.
Everything in this course is usable in public use, but especially that Professor Hale-Fishman was teaching it, that I especially loved because she makes it absolutely learnable.
I enjoy the walk-through labs. Especially, when the chapter labs in the text are so long, they actually suggest you take a break from the exercise. With the walk-through, I don't have to spend as much time looking for an Access menu item when my version at home does not match the picture. When I watch the instructor do the in-class walk-through, they will even mention the difference between older versions of Access verses the newer versions. This saves me a lot of frustration.
I liked all of the hands on work.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
None.
None
Maybe, a little bit more balance in the work and the due dates. Some of the work can be overwhelming at times especially when we have other classes to worry about.
No.
even if you doubled the work or even tripled the work in this class, it would still be doable because of Professor Hale-fishman's ability to make the hardest subjects seem easier to do.
Do more walk-throughs.
15. Other comments:
Great database class.
N/A
SQL wasnʻt as hard as I thought it would be.
Simply put. Professor Hale-fishman is the absolute bomb. She is the most awesome teacher I have ever met in my life. She is knowledgeable, caring, helpful, understanding, motivational, inspiring, well spoken, constructive and always there when anyone has any questions, even on a Sunday. She would be my candidate for Professor of the decades.
Instructor is very knowledgeable about real world situations and databases.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
This class was amazing, Marjorie is so full of real world business experience in the IT field it amazes me how she can think of almost everything. The lectures alone make it worth the cost of tuition. The group work also was great because it helped bring the class closer together and gave us a taste of real world collaboration.
Activities to research different methods of troubleshooting was informative and helpful.
Everything
This course, at first glance, seemed boring and dry. However, there was a lot more useful information about the world of IT than I expected.
The assignments was challenging and interesting. It gave me a broader perspective on the I.T field.
Some of the group projects we had this semester were fun. Since most of the students have been working together for the past two semesters, it made each student more responsible in turning in their work on time.
The instructor gave their own personal view of the relevant sections within the textbook. Even more valuable, is the instructor sharing their experiences when handling difficult situations with customers. Instructor obviously has been "there" and done all of "that" in IT.
Pertained to real life situations.
I liked the group work that helped us learn working in a team.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Update the old book and get rid of HelpStar!
none
No.
None. Except that I wish the Professor Hale-Fishman would teach all of the IT classes.
Allow us to see some real help desk workers working in real life situations.
I had difficulty using the WebStar software program in the classroom. I needed a special setup done at home. Please fix, Exam View or get rid of it. I hate having to redo my quizzes when the system randomly freezes and crashes out, skipping the print out option completely. Makes me question the validity of my program when the school support staff obviously has problems trying to resolve an issue over the course of two weeks.

Interesting class. Was more of class to learn how to deal with people. Class did not really delve with technology but more with personal attitude.
N/A
I think Professor Hale-Fishman should be the head of the IT department. Simply put. Professor Hale-fishman is the absolute bomb. She is the most awesome teacher I have ever met in my life. She is knowledgeable, caring, helpful, understanding, motivational, inspiring, well spoken, constructive and always there when anyone has any questions, even on a Sunday. She would be my candidate for Professor of the decades. She makes us want to learn more and more. I admit that I often fall behind but she is always there to pick me up and help me. She brings out the student in me. Speaking bluntly, I believe that to make the IT program at HCC be twice or even triple as successful as it is, Professor Hale-Fishman needs to be the Head of the IT department. You will have more students graduating because she will literally help them to succeed, not like the one who is the head now.
The instructor is a great IT program asset and resource. The instructor makes me feel like I got my money's worth. The instructor shares insights into their personal experiences in the private sector. I find this sharing truly valuable. Even more than anything that was cited in the course textbook and supplemental online videos from the textbook publisher. No other instructor in my IT program ever talk about their real world experiences outside the course textbook and supplemental material. Obviously, this shows me that these other instructors do not have any relevant experience and only know concepts, theory, and rules.

I liked how Mrs. Hale-Fishman conducted her class.
It was really helpful to someone like me who didn't know anything about the subject at the beginning of the semmester
I liked that throughout the whole semester, we had enough time in class to complete our assignments if we wanted to stay back.
It was structured well enough for me to learn and not be overwhelmed, but I still was challenged.
I felt that they were all very relevant to the various aspects of modern computer programs.
I liked that we got a chance to learn to different things using different computer programs.
I liked the fact that I learned way more about a computer and it is way more advanced than I ever thought from before days. the projects were fun and very informal, also going through everything step by step helped out to understand the material.
the way she teaches her students.
I enjoyed doing the powerpoint presentation. It was the most personal assignment, which made it a lot easier.
It was very well paced and the work was very reasonable. My instructor was extremely motivated about out subject and was very passionate about teaching to us.
This class made an example of how much more I could still learn about a subject. I learned many new things about the computer, one subject in particular (Microsoft Access), caught me completely off guard. Once it was learned, I felt extremely accomplished.
Everything. Great Class. Best teacher.
I liked the assignments, as they were very hands on and comprehensive in teaching me the concepts and techniques needed to properly use a computer in any professional environment.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
N/A
No
nope
The book is not good. The spiral spine comes loose and pages start falling out of the book, this makes it hard to complete assignments because some pages were gone
The only thing I was not crazy about were the acronyms on tests.
Have a teachers assistant. A lot of students nowadays are very familiar with the modern computer, and makes it that much harder to find help out side of class hours, considering the class is only twice a week.
I think maybe less work or more time given for me it was hard to just catch on right away so it took awhile for me to comprehend the given material sometimes even with the help of the instructor.
give students a microsoft office download.
no suggestions
None really.
Make the class less early.
None.

Fantastic teacher. I felt that she really gave the students every opportunity to succeed and to do well if they put in the effort.
Good job, I just had a hard time keeping up because I am not familiar with computers.
Ms.Hale-fishman was very helpful all the time I needed it and overall learned a whole lot more on computers.
Best Teacher.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Enjoyed teaching style by instructor with respect to CompTIA A+ material.
My favorite part was the hands on work we did when programming. Being able to create the things that we see everyday online such as a simple program that basically adds, subtracts, divides, and multiplies things (which is basically like a calculator) is cool. After this class you see computer games and programs in a different perspective. Personally, my mind after this class like to break a game or program to its simple form and figure out how it all comes together in the end.
Marjorie Hale-Fishman herself. Of all the instructors that I have taken classes from above all she is there and is ready and willing to help everyone.
Professor Hale-Fishman made the entire course really informative and enjoyable.
The hands on work is really helpful and helped with understanding the book.
This is an interesting class, and you will learn a lot about the software and fixing computer's software.
I like how she incorporated the subject matter with possible real life situations. It is much easier to learn using examples than going strictly by the reading materials alone.
I found this course to helpful.
FUN FUN FUN
the hands on stuff that we did.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Please change the course material to something more current. The text covers subject matter that is more appropriate for the CompTIA A+ 700 series exams. The CompTIA website specifically cites the 800 series exams for professionals seeking certification in the United States.
No, this class is fine.
No
Having tutors available.
I wish it was a two hour class so we would have more time to do hands on stuff.
I love it, keep it the same.
Keep it up to date. I would rather learn about what is current, not things that were relevant 5 years ago
Extend the course time and add more lab time.
No
make study guide extra credit give bonus questions MORE EXTRA CREDIT
more hands-on would be nice.
15. Other comments:
Looking forward to taking and passing the CompTIA A+ exams, unfortunately the only certified testing centers are on Oahu, at the Honolulu Community College campus.
Professor Hale-Fishman is very knowledgeable and always ready to help. She motivates the entire class to do well.
Great teacher
The top two things I learned from this class are: 1) Ease for Marjorie (she likes things done a specific way, like an actual employer) 2) Blame the the problem on hardware.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I would say that the work made me understand the concepts a lot better (albeit more frustrating when a program will not work), and this class was awesome.
working with visual studio
I enjoyed the style of instruction by instructor.
The Programming Challenges in the book were fun but difficult.
Marjorie Hale-Fishman herself. Of all the instructors that I have taken classes from above all she is there and is ready and willing to help everyone.
I liked how she took the time to help students when they really needed it. For me I had a difficult time loading the Visual Basic program. It took almost two months before I finally got the program to load onto my computer. It was very stressful as to why the program would not load onto both my HP laptops. Professor Hale-Fishman later determined that the reason the program was not loading onto either my laptops was because of a program glitch between Hewlett Packard and the 2010 Visual Basic Program.
I loved the labs and programs that we made.
Everything, but especially the professor who was very knowledgeable and willing to help with any problem.
I found this Hard but very full filling
Marge was a great instructor, she has a lot of knowledge and spent time helping me understand the course material
This course was really good I liked that the teacher knew what she was doing and that she helps out a lot when a student is having a difficult time with a specific subject.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Keep it the same, it was awesome.
no suggestions
Slide decks are very large. Possibly select most informative slides, then follow with one of the chapter walk-through to show working example of code and chapter concepts.
No, everything went well.
None
Tutors available and maybe a refresher summer course.
no
none
Maybe more hands on.
15. Other comments:
Overall, an awesome instructor. 10/10
I hate arrays with a passion!
class was great
I have recommended course to peers that want a different presentation style for Visual Basic instruction.
This course in Visual Basic will probably be the most useful tool that I will use in my career.
Instructor could be more dynamic in teaching. Lots of mistakes. Instructor seems to be more mechanical in teaching. Not very motivating. Change the instructor.
Professor Hale-Fishman is an awesome teacher.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
The labs were very fun and helpful.
I enjoyed the teaching methods that Prof. Hale-Fishman extended.
programming
everything
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
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!!!!
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.
Everything. Very well rounded course.
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 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.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
The books told you more about what not to do than what to actually do. Maybe get better books.
Books that would better explain writing programs.
less home work
none
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.
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.

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.
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.

I learned stuff.
learning about hardware
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.
Prof. Hale-Fishman is a wonderful teacher. I enjoyed all of her classes as she made learning very enjoyable.
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 ;)
Once again a very "Hands-On" Course. I learned a lot.
everything
I really enjoyed the various labs that we do, it really helped me to better understand the course.
The hands on labs and book work was very helpful and relevant.

Would have liked more network labs.
I would have liked an opportunity to build a computer from scratch.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Although the pace was quick and a lot of material had to be covered, Marjorie's techniques helped up keep pace and excel in the class.
I liked how Marjorie seemed to generally care about our class and what happen within it.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
I didn't like the format of some of the quizzes, and once the format was changed unexpectedly.
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).

An excellent instructor, dedicated and helpful.

I enjoy interacting with the cohort of students and our Instructor. Everyone works well together and contributes to class work.

Update the textbook.
Although the book had a lot of important information, I thought the book was confusing not in small sections but noticeably in three chapters.
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".
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.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Well laid out course (syllabus) and assignments for entire semester given
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.
It was really good to learn how to use Microsoft Office.
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.
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!
Very even flow through the textbooks. Nothing extremely difficult.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Keep up the great work!
Spend more time on Access, as that is the hardest program to use.
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.
No
No

Very well taught course. Instructor clearly knows the ins and out of the subject.
Would reccommend this professor to anyone looking to take computer science classes.
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.
Thank You
Very fun class. Marjorie was very understanding about me having to work and I was able to turn in assignments via email.
Marjorie was very helpful and responsive at any time of the day.

14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Change up the assignments, book work is good but tends to be repetitive.
kinda outdated material that we covered.
Update the textbook.
no
not really
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.
Books could be update some since this is the IT field and it is always changing.

Great programming course!
The textbook was better than average for ITS courses.
I liked the power point presentations, and how marge would go over examples of the algorithms.

Maybe show more way to do the programs. It seems like when we learn a certain way, we never want to change from that.

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.

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.
no
Get a different textbook. The current textbook is poorly written (unclear prose).
None
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.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
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.
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
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).
I like the study guides
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 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.
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.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
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.
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.
change the book
Keep her as the instructor of this class. Students will learn more from her!
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.
Longer lead times on group assignments.
15. Other comments:
Wish I had More classes with the instructor.
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.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Wellpaced- spread out nicely
Marjorie Hale-Fishman is a excellent instructor. She really made the difference.
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.
As long and painful as the assignments were, I can say that I learned a lot more than I would have expected.
This class was great, Mrs fishmen is a good teacher, works hard to help students. Give her a raise!!$$
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!

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
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.
she made the class interesting. Very helpful explaining each section.
This is my first class ever on programming and Marjorie made it it very fun.
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.
I appreciated explanations that illustrated how concepts were applied to real world applications.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Not really
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
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.
15. Other comments:
Marjorie is the best at what she does. I want to be like her.
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.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
i liked the hands-on projects. I also liked how Marjorie tells stories that relate to what we are learning.
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.
I appreciated that the instructional content and activities were relevant to real work environments.
Marge was very helpful and very easy to talk to. She goes over assignments and makes it easier to understand.
Assignments and such were simple and easy to do because of the instructorʻs effective instructions and help.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
no
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 !!!!!!
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.
Use a better more up to date book
Not Really

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Too much work work thruʻs, and labs.
I liked this course because it thought me more about computers and the way around them.
everything was hands on and fun.
I liked how we got to work at our own pace when it came to the computer works.
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.
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.
Not TOO difficult at all. I enjoyed the class.
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
This was my favorite class of the semester!
Everything was extremely interesting and I was suprised i liked the class as much as i did. I had a Great Instructor.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Too much work. Especially at the end of the year...
I feel this course does not need any improvments.
Too much work and little time. ease down on work.
I thought the course was good as it was.
No.
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.
None.

I liked that the teacher gives feedback on all work done. I liked that the teacher helped whenever possible.
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.
all of them
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.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
None.
none
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.
15. Other comments:
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.
Keep up the good work!!
one of the few classes that actually teaches you something useful.
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.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
the exercises were very helpful and of course the teacher was so helpful that this class was great.
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.
Really enjoyed the different programming assignments we got to work on.
Everything
learned a lot of programming knowledge. Awesome course
making programs that works
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.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
none it was great
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 overall a great class
None
need more time for final chapter on arrays
none
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.
15. Other comments:
I would like to see other programming classes to help us get ready to enter the programing world
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.
God bless you for sharing, and thank you to the University for giving Marjorie this opportunity which has been an inspiration to us all.
Overall I think I learned a lot in this class.
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.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
poor classroom equipment, non-functional omputers.

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.
great teacher love taking her classes look forward to more classes
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.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
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.
newer pc for labs
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.
none
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.
15. Other comments:
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.
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.
school is lucky to have her

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!
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!!!
this course was very heplful to me, because it made me more sharp in my computer skills.
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 :-)
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 liked working at my own pace and especially liked that we were learning Microsoft 2010.
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.
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.
where informative but could only do it in class
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...
The testing techniques. It was the computers way or no way
none
None.
N/A
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.
Make the IT lab more understandable any user friendly. Also make it more compatible for home use.
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
15. Other comments:
enjoyed the class learned alot
I am extremely sorry to not see her as an instructor for BUSN anymore. ?!
I dont have any other comments besides can Marjorie continue to teach BUSN 151 next semester.. thanks
I highly recommend this course to anyone who is interested about learning Microsoft word and its other functions.
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.
the instructor was very good with helping us... but the online aspect forced me to only do the work on line

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Great class wonderful teacher the is easy to learn from.. Would take class from her again..
That you could do it on line and not have to come to class to submit the work.
I enjoy working with computers so I like pretty much everything about this course.
I like the myitlab program. It was fun.
I liked learning all the different programs. It was very beneficial for me.
The ability to really apply myself and learn today's technology and tricks of the trade.
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.
The fact that I was able to do some work from home!

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
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.
Very informative about Microsoft Office which is very important to know how to operate.
I liked how the course was well balanced with lectures and hands-on work
The work was a good amount.
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.
The pacing of the class was spot on because it forced me to keep doing the work and to keep up with our assignments.
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 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
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.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
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 have no ways to imporve.
n/a
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).
Only that some of the due date are a little confusing.
15. Other comments:
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.
Very helpful class.
Mahalo for being a great teacher!!

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
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.
It was good to learn how to create and troubleshoot computer programs.
well prepared teacher
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
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.
Loved the presentation AND the practice/examples given! Great work ;) Thanx for sharing your knowledge!!! xoxox's...!
programming part
I like everything about this course. it helped me understand the basic of programming. i enjoy doing it.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
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.
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.
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
...
none
15. Other comments:
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.
I love Majorieʻs teaching style. Keep up the good work.
Thank You for offering this course and more! I appreciate it very much.

I liked being able to take apart a computer and do hands-on work with the hardware.
It was good to learn about the hardware of the computer and how to fix them.
Hands on
great teacher
the course was good. not great but then I am not a big fan of the CompTIA exams system
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
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).
more hands on
get more updated material

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
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.
The work is that you work at your own pace.
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.
Learning the basics, for example, all the assignments we did in class.
I enjoyed the pace. I didn't feel rushed.
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.
What I liked about this course is the assignments and test...that may sound weird, but I did enjoy the work it.
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.
This course is really interesting and will help alot in the future.
marjorie is a very well organized teacher which made my learning a whole lot easier.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
none
The course was taught well and look forward to taking more courses from HawCC with Marjorie Hale-Fishman.
No.
None.
Allow her to teach more courses in business technology.
I think she covers it all. Great Job!
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.

15. Other comments:
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.
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.
None
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 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.
I wouldnt recommend this course to anyone
