13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I like the structure of this online class where every chapter module is due on sundays. It makes it easier and flexible. I can choose to do it early throughout the week, or if other class work is priority, then I can do it on the weekends.
Good information
First time taking an online class can be very confusing,its a lot different from being in a class,however it is a good way of learning to manage time. I liked how everything was related to what we were reading and learning each subject.
The things I learned were very informative. I enjoyed posting material on the discussion board and also giving and receiving good responses.The power points had a good amount of useful information and it helped a lot with the quizzes so thank you for taking the time to make those for us!
IO really enjoyed this course. It was really easy for me because it was online ad i could do it when i wantred to. I feel that Moshe has a very effective style of teaching because i retained a great amount of information from this course and i think about it almost everyday because it is very relevant info.
The professors additional notes and study guides really helped to understand the material in a way that encouraged the success of students.
GEOG 101 with Mr. Rappaport has a very organized online class which makes it very enjoyable.
i enjoyed reading the articles given during each module relating to different parts of the world and the module we were working on. It gave me a more realistic view of the module content.
I appreciated the schedule. It was not a surprise what was expected of me and I did not feel stressed like I should check in EVERY DAY! I liked the modules how it helped me with the quiz once a week...that was a nice outline
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
I did not know about the last quiz had to be taken at a proctored site till the last day even though it was in the syllabus. I think a reminder to students would have been nice.
none
Update the gradebook. Or at least in the middle of the semester, let the students know what their grades are.
Perhap the quizzes were too easy based on the fact that the professor gives out such detailed and information packed study guides. A student could take the course without the book and just using the study guides and still do well.
I really did not like the book.There was so much information, and when there were 2 chapters, it was way too much.I would hope that in the future, 1 chapter would be enough, as it is smoooooshed with stuff/concepts that I still don't understand
15. Other comments:
N/A
I hated the way our instructor answered student questions, even when they were not directed to her...It was quite rude and irritating. I felt like a dummy if I even had a question, so I chose not to ask. If I really had a question, I emailed rather than being humiliated by our instructor
