13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
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!
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.
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.
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.
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 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?
Update the gradebook. Or at least in the middle of the semester, let the students know what their grades are.
none
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.
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
