1. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
Fix typos, fewer assignments
Maybe offer videos with the assignments because some of the assignments are hard to follow along. I think the videos would help because for me whenever I would do an assignment I wouldn't process how to do certain things because I couldn't see what I was going to do.
It would be nice if there was a Gradebook tab on Laulima so the students can see what their current grade is in the course.

25. How did the instructor show concern for students?
By being caring
She made it clear that we as students should ask questions, and she was very quick at returning emails.
I was debating wether or not to take this course online for the summer semester, due to the fact I have heard some bad things(at Leeward community college)about the course. Im glad I decided to take this class through Winward becuase I was happy and learned alot! I will spread the word!
she responded to emails promptly and had really good instructions for assignments
Emailed students weekly with what was expected each week and was always open to questions and concerns.
Vanessa Cole was always helpful and responded quickly with my many questions.
26. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She cool
I like how she is understanding of the problems that arise during homework and does what she can to help the students through those problems.
The course was well thought out and considering its an online class I felt like she was there all the time to help.
it would have been nice if there was an example given for the topic report
Thank you for teaching me all that you have. I have honestly learned a lot from this class.
Good teacher! I took the course online so I didn't get an in-person interaction impression. But there was always clear communication which is crucial in an online class
27. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, she's a good teacher
Yes, because she is respectful, knowledgable, and cares for the students.
My only grip was sometimes I felt the written instructions were worded a little funny but other than that I have no complaints.
yes, her class was simple and easy to understand
Yes, I would recommend this class to other students because you learn a lot as long as you pay attention and put the work into the class.
Yes. She's knowledgeable and presents the information in a manner that is easy to understand

Campus: Windward Community College Department: Business
Course: MGT 120 - Principles of Management Crn (Section): 64291 (0)    
1. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
That it was a hybrid course, and that the teacher was always available to answer any questions that anyone might have had in this class.
helped me understand what management is and i used this outside of class
I enjoy the hybrid factor in the class
I found most valuable in this class is the differet management styles we were exposed to and can make our own style.
I was in a process of starting my own business and needed to know how to begin. I was overwhelmed of the lack of information I needed, I thought I would get some managerial information for my community volunteer services. Well I got more than what I expected, I was learning about globally managerial from small one person company to large businesses.
I found the lessons from connect very informal and useful for my future goals of opening up my own business. The presentations also helped me familiarize myself with the management tools that I could benefit from as well.
I really liked the Connect quizzes and the in class lectures. The lectures were short and to the point. We had just the right amount of time in class to learn the day's lesson.
The information presented, especially the terms and theories.
I like the fact that we had that one day of in class learning. It helped you stay on track for the rest of the week and allowed you to have both the independent distance learning option as well as to interact with the teacher and teammamates. I really liked that.
The Lectures and in-class excerises were very helpful in the learning process for this course.
2. My overall evaluation of this course is...
I enjoyed this course, but I did not like the connect activities at all.
i probably give it 6
8
This is a great course because we learn a lot from this class.
I have my GE lic., my company name Flying Misty Water, and getting my produce ready for sale. I did the right thing about this class applying everything I learned from Miss Cole to my business.
It was a very englightening class that will continue to help me years down.
Good class, knowledgable teacher
Good course. If you want to you can get a lot out of the class.
i actually gained a lot from this course. I figured out at the end why we did all the exercises that we did both in class and through researching management styles and jotting down our bullet points. when it came to making my presentation i felt i was very well prepared and actually learned a lot about myself as a manager or the type of manager i wish to be.
This course was challenging and difficult but Vanessa made it very understable. I have learned many new things about managing and I know I will continue to use the skills that I have learned, for the rest of my life.

27. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She was readily available to answer any questions that students had, and she was very helpful.
She responded to emails and was available before and after class for questions
She would always ask us if we need help with anything.
Miss Cole kept an open contact with e-mail or cell to assistance with homework and classroom discusion.
She made sure we were aware of the assignments, projects, and tests deadlines.
Answered questions promptly, emailed students if she noticed they were behind on work
She helped me get caught up when I fell behind and excused me from class when I was ill, and when I was unable to make it into school.
She was able to be flexible when needed but helped us to do well in the class.
This semester i fell behind after the deaths of 3 family member and Vanessa was very compassionate and gave me time to make up the assignments.

She gave us time to do our work
Vanessa Cole was available to her students for questions and clarifications as needed
Being flexible with unforeseen circumstances.
26. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
she is really cool
Vanessa Cole created assignments to highten student learning by creating projects that utilized skills discussed in class.
Great course, but waaaaaay to late at night.
Ms. Cole would take time to go through information that students did not understand. She is a very structured and strict teacher, but she is very good and knows what she is talking about. I recommend her to anyone who wants to learn a few important basics.
27. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes i would recommed Vanessa Cole to other students because she is very helpful and willing to do whatever she can to ensure her students grasp and use computers to simplify tasks
Yes for her method, but no due to it being a 7pm class.
Yes. Ms. Cole has the education and passion for computers and conveys that energy through her lessons. She always shows compassion for the knowledge of using computers to help us in college.

25. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Before the semester started I emailed her asking for an override for her class because it was full and she responded almost immediately with her approval. She has also been available for questions and takes the time to actually answer them.
She takes the time to help you if you encounter a problem with the assignments. In addition, she makes herself available to students. Most teachers take a while to respond and she's very prompt, which makes me feel like she genuinely wants us to do well in her course.
For me she really help me out with my class work.
Vanessa Cole helped me outside of class time when I was stuck. She was very patient and guided me through the problem. She also responds to emails very quickly.
Emails to let us know when she is available for help
She always stressed that if we had any questions or were confused to contact her immediately. She is so prompt about her responses.
26. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Very knowledgeable about her course!
I think she is really concern with her student.
I enjoyed taking her class online, she is very organized, and lets you know any due dates way ahead of time.
She knows her stuff and seems like she really enjoys teaching it and cares how the students are doing as far as their enjoyment and understanding.
27. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Definitely! Very good class to take and very interesting!
Yes. Doing a distance learning course can be very time consuming. Professor Cole understand that we all have obligations to things outside of this class. Her method of teaching is effective in that she assigns a fair bit of assignments and material to cover - but she simplifies things in a way which makes it easy to remember.
Yes I would. She is a good teacher.
Yes, I learned better through taking thins course online since this course does pertain to learning different computing principals.
Yes. Although it is online, she is very organized, neat and on time with what was assigned online just like a regular classroom
Yes, because she is clear and concise and teaches a lot of useful information. Also, she seems really nice.

25. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She showed her concern by getting back to emails really quickly and always encouraged us to ask questions!
She e her self available on the weekends online prior to the homework due date, so she can answer question through e-mail. And she understands most distance learning students have a full time job, can only do homework on the weekends, there for she make sure the due dates are reasonable. Web site development are very hard to teach through on line class. She did a great job explaining and designing the course.
Ms Cole shows concern for her student by responding to their questions very promptly with great answers and suggestions. This is really critical when taking an on-line class.
postponed the due date so everyone could finish the milestone.
She took the time to individually look at assignments to ensure that work was done, even if they weren't turned in online. She gives ample room to do the work, offers opportunities to make up for late assignments, and has pushed deadlines if asked.
Allowed extended time to complete our homework, when she could see us struggling with some of it.
She sought input from the students, individually and frequently. She created a relaxed, encouraging environment in the classroom.
IF THE STUDENT FELT AS IF THEY NEEDED HELP AND HAS MISSED CLASS A FEW TIMES SHE WOULD BE WILLING TO HELP THE STUDENT CATCH UP ON THE WORK.
Consistently checking on and assisting students throughout class.
When I had a hard time understanding what she was saying for her class. She helped me get through it.
By providing individual assistance and help to students, and making herself available for any extra help that students may need.
She was willing to help each student with their individual issues related to the class. She was usually available to help students for two hours prior to each class session. I could not have learned as much as I did without that.
She strongly encourages questions and makes it a point to answer. She looks at work submitted and makes constructive comments.
26. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She is a really great teacher who knows so much about this subject!!!!
I think she is a great instructor over all.
Ms. Cole encourages questions, provides great examples and is very responsive.
She makes it easy to complete the assignments, saying exactly what needs to be done.
she is very personable, and likeable
She opened a field of inquiry for me with ease and enjoyment.
VERY GREAT TEACHER, GIVES GOOD ADVICE AND WORK IS ORGANIZED.
We need more instructors like her.
She is a great person. I appreciate all that she did for me this semester.
She is a good teacher, and seems to understand the subject matter very well. I think that she would be great at teaching a course entirely on CSS (the design portion of website development), and based on class reactions, I think there would be a high enrollment/interest in a course of that nature.
She shows a strong desire to teach and help students learn. As oppose to some other professors who just do it as a job.
27. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes for sure because I was worried that an online class like this would be difficult but her lessons were easy to understand and I liked the amount of assignments we have. It really helped me to learn the subject.
I would strongly recommend Vanessa Cole to other students.
Take a course with Ms. Cole. I have gone from knowing nothing about websites to being able to create one that not only works but looks pretty good. Yes, it was hard work but Ms. Cole helped me every step along the way.
yes, I didn't know anything about web design when I signed up for this class, but as the semester progressed I learned a lot.
Yes, she is a well organized teacher that makes good use of distant learning to teach a technical topic
yes, because she is very flexible
I would recommend Vanessa Cole to anyone interested in web development.
YES, HER CLASS IS REALLY FUN. IF YOUR INTO THE WHOLE WEB DESIGNING AND LEARNING STRUCTURE HER CLASS IS A GREAT CLASS TO LEARN.
Absolutely, simply because she is a great instructor who really understands the material and how to teach it.
Yes. I wouldn't have made it through this class without her. She showed great concern when I needed help.
Yes, because she is really helpful in providing a basic understanding of web design/the foundation for building on that information to develop a comprehensive site.
I would absolutely recommend her to other students because she is very approachable and creates a positive learning environment.
Yes, you will receive good explanations, learn and get answers to questions.
28. Other comments:
Great online course with a REALLY great teacher!!!!
Sure wish their was an advanced class to follow the Introduction to Website Design, as I would like to continue to learn in even more detail how to build and design websites.
n/a
This is an excellent class.
I'll be looking for classes taught by Vanessa Cole in the future.
Thank you for all that you did Vanessa. Have a great Winter!
This was probably the most enjoyable class that I have taken at Windward. Hopefully WCC will offer more web design classes in the future.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to express my appreciation for Venessa Cole.

3. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
We were able to work on the assignments hands on rather than just reading how to do it.
The fact that the teacher loved to get in there and answer any questions you may have, and help you to the best of her ability.
The hands-on use with Adobe Dreamweaver.
I found the website project very valuable because it was a hands-on opportunity to use the skills learned in class.
Vanessa herself and her willingness to explain things. I have a learning/processing disability which leads me to ask the same question a few times even if I had got it once, I may not get it today. She was kinder than most in helping me.
Teacher is clear, direct, helpful, and the course material is relevant, useful and contemporary. It was also very helpful that the course was offered in the evening. This allows me to work during day time hours.
Vanessa's advice and input
Using Dreamweaver Templates for the website setup.
The instructors laulima site was easy to follow along, it made it easy to review the work. I don't think any of my other instructors covered on how to use laulima, but with Vanessa's site, I didn't need to have it explained. In her course, she stressed useability and accessability in web design, her laulima site definitely shows this.
The ease and flexibility in course work and assignments, with regards to the amount of time given to complete them not their difficulty level. Essentially, I never felt an unnecessary amount of pressure in getting work done, their was always ample time given.
I learned a lot about website design, HTML, and Dreamweaver.
The step by step instructions on how to complete assignments.
The most valuable and helpful thing I learned from taking this course is creating a website from scratch.
In this day and age, I am satisfied that I have the knowledge to develop a website.
I think the online presentations were extremely helpful.
the directions in the course are awesome. Can't wait to use what I learned outside of school.
It broadened my knowledge on website development by using Dreamweaver.
Professor Cole was available for help very often. She responded through e- mail urgently and diligently.
4. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Awesome! The class exceeded all expectations and is a blessing to have at Windward Community College. I showed my website to a bunch of colleagues and they were all impressed at what I could do at an introductory level.
I enjoyed the course, and would recommend it to others.
This course was very enjoyable and informative. I feel like I know a lot more about web sites and a bit about making them as well.
Great for 101 level!
Great!
Excellent.
A worthwhile course for anyone interested in beginning web development.
It was very information and hands on. Everything given filled in any questions I had.
It teaches a worth while skill, is well organized and was a joy to take.
Excellent course very useful and informative.
Positive! It was my favorite course this Semester.
I enjoyed the course and would definitely take another course from this professor.
I really like this course because it is prepping me for my major.
Fun class, and taught very well.
I really enjoyed taking this course, probably my favorite out of all my classes this semester haha..i would definitely like to pursue more advanced material in this subject to further my web developing abilities.
Overall I think the course was great. The way the project was broken down it made it easy to complete. There were some technical difficulties but that was all on my part.
That it should be taken online only if one is familiar with Dream Weaver...
Positive, the class was well worth my time.
5. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
A required introductory course textbook would've been beneficial. The online link to chapters from a textbook wasn't all that great for introductory students.
Can't think of anything at this time.
For the most part, there is nothing I can think of to really improve. I do feel the lectures were not nearly as helpful as working directly with the programs, but at times, the lectures were more about other things, such as HTML coding and javascript, which is solely there for the information.
Allocate more time to learn the software Dreamweaver.
Can't suggest too much, her online courses have no book costs, is taken from Yale an ivy league school, and she is available during open lab if you fall behind.
More follow up courses in the evening.
This course could be improved by adding in more a hands on to the coding side. And be less relient on the application to do it for you.
Since i have little to no back ground for computers, a little more illistraions or links to explain terms would be helpful. The places i tried to look up these terms just used a lot of jargon.
Offer it in the Mac lab! :)
I would prefer the instructor had finished designing the homework assignments before their start date, that way I can work ahead. But that is really minor.
I have no recommendations on how to improve this course. I like the course the way it is.
It can't. I believe it should stay the same.
Being able to make it easy to work from any computer.
more online videos
The course can't really be improved because it already is so good.
The course is good, The professor is awesome. It's time consuming and alot of you time has to be put into the creation of the site. It's overwhelming if paired with 4 other courses... I suggest this course to those students that have time and don't have children at home... Then they will be able to create a nice site.

30. How did the instructor show concern for students?
As long as you informed her of problems, she was more than helpful in accommodating assignments and due dates within reason.
After each lesson, she would take questions from the students and would answer them to the best of her ability. Additionally, she let the students choose what they wanted to work on for their project, thus having something interest them as they worked, rather than being assigned something from the teacher.
Even despite how little people did, she always stopped and encouraged asking questions in case anyone had trouble with what was going on. She'd also walk around the room asking if anyone needed assistance when work was being done.
She was always available during lab hours. She always made sure our questions were answered during class time or via email She prepared exam reviews for us She provided suggestions and comments on how to improve our website making skills
She made the time to help me, even when I need almost constant assistance sometimes, she didn't get too flustered. Some people think that I am trying to be funny, but I am not - I just have a problem with retention or reconstruction of thoughts. Sometimes it helps me to repeat things verbatum even though the person has just told me something, so it makes me seem kooky but what can I do?
Patience and flexibility.
She would walk around and ask if any student needed help.
Vanessa opened the class two hours early, to allow us to ask questions and to work on the computers. She honestly seem to enjoy having us in class and asking questions.
She showed care and compassion when others had extenuating circumstances, and made adjustments to help them.
She encourages us to ask questions, constantly.
She seemed very concerned with making sure students understood course content.
She was avaiable for open labs if the students needed help.
She went the extra mile to insure I succeeded in this class. You can tell she wants everyone to succeed.
when i needed help, she was easy to communicate with and was able to meet up with me almost immediately.
She gave an extension because a lot of people were falling behind. Also she showed that she cared by offering extra help to get you back on track.
Extends her assistance in Open computer lab twice a week, even to those taking the distance learning courses.
She asked if we had questions.
31. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She's a good teacher that enjoys working with the students, and will help them with any problems they might have.
She is very easy to talk to and have a conversation with or to ask questions, and she is able to speak very well during the lectures.
She has a great method and is very approachable
Very nice person.
She is a fine and dedicated teacher.
she deserves a raise.
She's a good teacher.
Shes a nice teacher
Thanks again for answering my million questions, and being so caring.
she is friendly and easy to talk to
This is my third class with Ms. Cole and she is a great teacher! Every semester was a blast and I learned way more than I thought I would.
She's very nice, and smart. She's my IT role model I hope I can be like her one day.
She is patient.
32. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes! She knows her stuff and has an open door policy. She loves to interact with students and always has time to answer any questions.
I would, unless the student or students in question do not plan to take the class seriously. She doesn't have time to deal with people who choose to mess around in class.
I would because she seems to genuinely care about what's going on in the class and she's very fair and helpful if assistance is needed.
Yes. She has a great method and is very approachable
Absolutely, she is an excellent instructor. I would take any class that she teaches.
Yes, see above for reasons
Yes, she gets the information out there and has the student do a hands on with it at the beginning.
I would recommend Vanessa Cole because she knows her subject, she's friendly and she makes every atempt to help you succeed in her class.
Yes, because I enjoyed the class.
Yes
Yes because she went above and beyond what you would normally expect from your professor of a distance learning class.
Yes, I would because she is there to help the students if needed.
Yes. She knows her stuff. And you'll get out the class what you put in and she'll be there every step of way if needed.
YES. She is very knowledgeable.
yes. her class was fun and i learned a lot about a subject that i knew almost nothing about but was interested in.
Yes! Everyone says online was hard but to me this class was just perfect...not to hard not to easy.
Yes, I have recommended her to a few of my classmates already.
Yes, because she explains throughly and to the point.
33. Other comments:
I'm sorry if I seemed uninterested at times. I really do enjoy your class.
I'd love to see a follow up to this class called Website development level 2 or something like that, to continue learning about making websites.
Give her more money. lol
I appreciate this class and would like more in this field.
I enjoyed Vanessa Cole's class and i hope to take more classes instructed by her.
n/a
Great class, fun and very useful stuff.
Thank you Ms. Cole for being so fair with the homework and for the great instructions! Teach more classes so I can sign up. =]
Taking this course online was a challenge and a test to me. I will not take a ICS course online again. I will stick to attending class instead of distance learning ICS courses. It's difficult to complete the tasks at home.
I enjoyed Website Development with Professor Cole.

2. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
When you record your audio lecture, do more than read your powerpoint verbatim. I literally would often mute the audio and just read it myself.
I think that the material presented is clear and easy to follow along. She answered all questions quickly and worked with me throughout the semester. It was great!
Professor Cole had everything up on Laulima on what us students needed to do in the course. I don't see anything for any improvements.
n/a
There's nothing I can see that would make her online course any better. It's great.
n/a
The instructions were clear but I wish there were more video demonstrations.
I would have liked to have seen just a few more lecture videos.
Not much room for improvement. Well organized.
This course helps you to learn certain things but the projects are too detailed and takes way too long to complete. And we have these projects almost on a weekly basis which is too much if you are a full time student with other classes as well.
Possibly make the instructions a little more easy.

4. What did you like most about your online course experience?
It was a fun class overall. I enjoy working with computers.
I like being able work on the course within my schedule. I have kids and a military husband. So most of the time I'm working on school at night and online classes provide that convenience!
There is a pro and con to this I feel. I believe it would work both ways for anyone taking the online course or being a classroom setting. It's up to how the person feels it would be best for them.
allows for a flexible schedule.
Her online lectures. Very helpful and it made it more personal. And the interaction with other students... very nice. Also, the open lab - very helpful.
The most thing I liked about taking a online course was that I didn't need to fit it in my schedule then if I was to take it in person. It saved me a lot of time so I could work.
That I could just do my work form home.
I liked that I could do my assignments and readings on my own time.
When taking an ICS course, I find that online is better most of the time. Since most ICS classes are teaching about computers, for me, it is easier to learn on a computer.
The schedule was given at the beginning of the semester so it made it easier to stay on track and plan ahead. The schedule of assignments was the first thing you saw when you logged in to Laulima.
I had much better experiences with other online classes. This was the most difficult online class I have taken so far in the three years I have been going to school.
it was good that i could do most of it from home, even though i came to school to do it.
5. What did you like least about your online course experience?
The spreadsheet portion of the class. I still don't like excel. Haha.
I am trying to take most of my furture classes online. There is a little disadvantage not being face to face with the professors, but with technology that can be fixed.
I can't say I have anything.
getting stuck without the right programs.
Skype, or some type of open lab online might be nice, if possible.
The thing I liked least about online was that I got confused at times and I didn't have people to ask because it was online.
That you couldnt get all the help you wanted. Responses from the instructor would take a while. And you couldnt do it on your own pace.
I felt as if I spent more time studying for my online courses than I would have had I been in a class.
As with all online courses, the hardest part was keeping track of the schedule, but that is not too hard to overcome.
Nothing.Everything was awesome.
All the projects.
it was a little hard to stay on track

She always returned my emails promptly.
I asked for an extension with a homework assignment due to family reasons. She more than willingly granted the extension and even gave me extra time! I was SO thankful, for her understanding the situation and working with me!
She's available for students via email or office hours. Though it's better that you contact her through email. She encourages students to do the best work they possibly can.
leaves encouraging comments and criticisms in regards to assignments.
she has emphasized "ask questions, ask questions, ask questions."
She was willing to answer any of our questions via email and also having open labs on certain days.
she didnt.
Replies back to students in a timely manner.
I never had any issue that required her direct help. But as far as I know, she helped students that requested it in a timely manner.
She always responded to my questions that I sent by e-mail with promptness and was available for help outside of class time.
She didn't really help with questions or concerns that I had. I took an online class for the reason that I am a full time student with other classes and homework to do and I work full time as well, and she still expected people to go to W.C.C. and go to the labs.
she accepted late work due to work issues
She would email me to make sure everything was okay if i missed an assignment. GREAT TEACHER(:
31. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I believe she is consistent with all students and hold them accountable. It makes it fair for all students. She is very clear with expectations and encourages questions. If you ask, she'll answer quickly and help!
Professor Cole is knowledgeable in her subject and enjoys teaching it.
the ones i marked as neutral should be marked as n/a being that i was taking the online course
She is enthusiastic in her online lectures. Has time for students. Answers questions promptly.
nice
I would take another course from her.
The class was pretty fun and fairly intuitive.
Her class was very well organized and she knows her stuff.
great teacher and is very understanding and fair
32. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes.
I would absolutely recommend Vanessa Cole to other students. The material presented is organized and easy to understand. She shows concern for the student and is very knowledgable with the material presented!
Yes I would. People will learn more about the functions of a computer and she'll make things interesting for you.
yes, everyone needs to know how to use a computer efficiently, it is the 21st century.
yes. she is very thorough. She is interested in the subject matter and very helpful.
Yes, I would recommend her because she is a good teacher to take online classes with.
I would not recommend her to other students because ICS being an online class was very difficult to me, and she goes way too fast and it is very difficult for me to understand. Doesnt really explain problems clearly.
I would reccomend students who are already proficient in computer technology because this class does move fast.
Yes. If a fellow student was looking for an ICS class she teaches, I would recommend her. She seems to know the subject and she is willing to help the individual when needed.
Absolutely! She has taught me the computer skills I need to succeed. 1.Well organized 2.Always available for help 3.Knows her stuff 4.Has great resources 5.great class structure
No, because this class takes way too much time.
yes cause i had a great experience in her class this semester
33. Other comments:
going to be looking back on the material, very informative.
I recommend Professor Cole to other students. The online course is almost as good as in-class, better than other online courses. It seems that she is "there."

4. What did you like most about your online course experience?
ability to fit into my own schedule.
I like the online course mostly because I can do it at anytime until the date of this assignment due. Don't have to show up in the class, but see professor if any help needed.
I learned a lot about access
Being able to be home.
The assignments were challenging but completely applicable to course material.
I learned how to do things such as use the database. This was one of the tougher assignments for me because I am not familiar with it. I have learned a lot from this class which would be very useful towards my business goals in the near future.
she was so very interactive. she answered emails right away and she didn't care how stupid the questions was. she was also very available in her office for help
5. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Discipline required to complete the work.
Sometime it's hard for me to understand how to do the assignment correctly. I had to ask teacher through email, sometime I get an answer in few hours or next day.
My ITLab was a pain in the behind.
i liked it
the fact that it took me longer than i expected to get used to the system

By sending out weekely emails explaining what was coming up that week in class and encouraging questions and comments.
She did make sure students understand their assignments and project. She also offer us lab hours to meet with her for help.
Emailing us weekly
she emailed us reminders all the time, and she made herself available to help students.
Yes! When I was having difficulty using the online tutorial program due to computer compatibility issues, she offered alternate means for using the programs.
She encourages her students to ask questions. She is available to help us with our assignments through email and through her office hours. She is very helpful to make our class members feel successful.

31. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I would like to say thank her for review my mind in Microsoft Office 2007, I took the same course in the past but it was Microsoft Office 2003. I learned a little bit new in this software.
N/A
nothing
She really seems knowledgeable and keeps students actively engaged by creating interesting assignments.
I have taken 2 classes from her and would recommend anyone else to do so. I have talked to those who are taking her other classes and they feel the same way too. I would recommend her classes for others to take in the future. She is very helpful in answering any questions we have, especially when we ned help on the day a project is due. She is very helpful in making us be successful in her class.
she's just an awesome online teacher.
32. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, because she cares about the student learning the subject.
I would recommend students to take her course because she helped me to understand how the assignment benefit for me in the future to make my task better.
Yes
yes, because I thought she was good for an online teacher
Yes! This was my first inline class and liked the way information was presented. The syllabus was easy to follow and Vanessa Cole went above and beyond by sending a weekly email as a reminder of what we were schedule to study and submit for the week.
Yes, she is very helpful and considerate to us. She explains concepts clearly and if we do not understand, she is there to help us through to completion.
definitely

4. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I enjoyed working on the exercises that she assigned to us students. Some were tough, but rewarding when you completed it and looked at the finished assignment.
the flexibility. The teacher was also very available for assistance.
It was online and most the things that we had to do was online.
Being able to work at my own pace on my own time
It was a good experience because it made me actually have to find my own time to do the assignments. I did have to do a lot of them at school because the software was not readily available for me at home.
5. What did you like least about your online course experience?
For this course, we made use of Dreamweaver CS4. It is a great program, but you must learn how to use it. She does a nice job teaching us certain skills to create webpages. The only difficult part is learning how to use dreamweaver if you've never worked with any sort of web design software. There is a lot to learn about web design. More information about using dreamweaver would be nice to have.
Since I'm currently on the mainland, I couldn't attend any workshops or go in and get assistance.
Nothing, much that i didnt like least about it.
I think this course would have been better for me to take in a classroom.
I didn't like that I had to do most of it at school because of my lack of attaining the proper software.

30. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She tells us to send her emails when we have questions, or visit her at her lab hours or office hours. She wants to help us when we get stuck on something.
She constantly was urging students to seek help if needed. She set up workshops and was at the computer lab for as long as anybody needed help. She showed concern in every way possible.
By having open lab for us to come in for help.
She was actively involved. Every week she sent out e-mail explaining what was going on for the week. She also sent out e-mails reminding the class if they need help she is available, the computer lab is open, and to feel free to email questions to her.
She understood that it may be hard for us to do things on our own at home so she made herself available on tuesdays and some thursdays in an open lab as well as her office hours and ALWAYS available through e-mail.
31. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She's a nice teacher to have for this course.
She is an excellent professor.
She is a nice and caring teacher.
I felt she has a great understanding of the subject matter and is passionate about it. I found it easy to ask question, even though I didn't know what to ask.
She is well organized and is very helpful and understanding. Always promotes asking questions so that we do well and so that we understand what we are doing rather than just going through the motions.
32. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
For this online course, yes, I would recommend Vanessa, because she knows how to teach this course and will help you when you have any questions.
Yes, she is very interested in seeing her students succeed.
Yes! she knows what she is teaching and that is willing to help out.
I would definitely recommend her to other students because she emphasizes key points to promote learning and wants her students to do well.
33. Other comments:

2. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
use more online activities
it was very good, i liked the power points for the subjects, i just would like more exercises on the computers, maybe it is because we never had our workbooks though. but over all very good.
Well for our class it probably would have been a lot better if we had the books but it wasn't the instructors fault that there wasn't any provided this semester
More of the hands on training was good. The powerpoints helped to explain the basics and we got the in depth detail from the online training.
Have more thing for the students to do so they would understand the work better

By asking if anyone needed "specific" help in certain areas and went around the room and helped us if needed.
She went around and asked each student specifically if they understood or needed help.

She is enthusiastic and very helpful.
I would like to take more ICS classes because it would help me and I feel like I got a lot of stuff I never knew now!
Her methods of teaching are well organized and helpful to learning.
shes a really good teacher but it got kinda boring at points.
32. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
yes, easy and fun class
Yes, she knows her stuff and is very helpful, guides you along each step if you are havig difficulties.
If you like computer stuff it would be good to take other classes but I recommend this to anyone who has no idea how to use certain programs like excel,word and powerpoint because those will all be beneficial for every college student.
I would recommend this instructor if they need extra help understanding material.
yes because i dont see how anyone can fail with the way she teaches.

4. What did you like most about your online course experience?
It was a new experience of which I thought was refreshing, though perhaps not for me.
I like the most is just the experience in general. I was stuck a few times but I came personally to get help.
Instructions for exercises and milestones were clear and easy to follow. Ample time was given to work on assignments.
That it was very convenient for me to take.
I liked the online course for the privacy and ability to study on my own time. This allowed me to relax, while suffering from extreme pain and discomfort. I did not need to worry about disturbing the students or instructor.
Gained knowledge about topics I wasn't too familiar with. Was able to attend class at times that were most convenient for me. Didn't have to physically commute to class.
5. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I had a hard time with my own will power to keep to the work.
It was harder to learn the material online, I guess I'm more hands on.
Some of your instructions are difficult to understand and there are little mistakes in the instructions here and there. It can be very difficult to complete an assignment with these obstacles in the way.
More mini exercises would have been helpful - sometimes too much time passed between exercises so I would forget some of the steps - but then I could have also disciplined myself to practice more!
I guess the subject matter was a bit difficult if you never made websites before.
There was no video to show exactly what the instructor had written about. There is no one who can see what I am doing wrong or right. There is no one to see what is wrong with my environment that is causing this pain and suffering.
Resolving technical difficulties sometimes took longer than I would have liked.

She really helped us individually on our problems whether we had it with assignments, projects, etc.
Asked Questions
She is very understanding when you miss class. Just talk to her and she will try to help.
She would constantly come around and check to see if we had any problems. If we did, she would try to help us solve our problems and then let us continue from there.

i am not a computer person but Vanessa always offered help and explained things to me when i didn't understand.
She walks around the class and asks everybody if they have questions or need help with anything.
she asked us if we had questions after a presentation
By making herself available outside of class.
She helps out each student individually when help is needed
She opened her room more than an hour before class started to assist students that had questions or did not understand something.
If she sees a look of confusion on your face she will address you to make sure you are getting it and deal with you one on one to help you understand the issue.
Mrs cole closely supervised the class and was very helpful if there were questions on the subject matter
when we have specific questions concerning the individual she made sure that we got that specific help and knowledge that we were abtaining.

Well, it was pretty boring, but what can you say...it's ICS. She did the best she could have done with the course at hand.
