16. Which things, if any, do you think your instructor did especially well?
I liked that the class lectures could be watched at home.
He is passionate about what he is teaching.
I love the relevant stories and current events he goes over in class. It makes the subject applicable and more comprehensible.
Engaged students, created a safe atmosphere for dialogue, and encouraged students to further their education and provided a wide variety of options.
He made a point of communicating when things were due.
It was very easy to follow the lessons and to understand the material.
He is amazing and engages students in discussions.
Mr. Miller has vast knowledge in business and takes class preparation seriously. This class provides a broad overview of the business landscape and is appropriate for those with business life experience.
Class organized well. I knew what was going on at all times. If I couldn't go to watch in on Skybridge there were other options for watching the class which is VERY helpful.
Trying to get all his students to participate in class blogs and using technology to help out his students.
very flexible with class because it's a sky bridge class. i like how he uses laulima a lot throughout our course, easy access.
He is very understanding with students who have special needs. He's not like regural instructors, he goes out of his way to help a student suceed. At first he scared me, but once you get to know him he's a very good instructor, and I would definetly take one of his other classes.
He clearly outlined what would happen throughout this semester; the quiz and project dates were clear to me and were very easy to understand.
He explains each topic of lecture very thoroughly until all student have a full understanding. He communicates well and response to emails instantly.
I am taking this class online and I am glad Mr. Miller posts his lectures online in different formats so that we are able to watch them easily.
I like the 'casual' type way of his instruction. Easy to relate to.
Depending on the subject, Mr. Miller was able use modern day example or give situations in business that either occurred directly to him or to someone he knows. I liked that he is smart yet very approachable and willing to help. I have a learning disability and I was always encouraged and given different ways to pursue a matter. In the beginning of the class I was very concerned about the quality of the videos, the internet not accommodating them, etc. This was my first experience with an online class and I wasn't handling it well. He asked me to meet him several times and gave hands on examples of what to do by using his computer. Together we were able to come up with solutions. I do not have very many instructors willing to do that. One more thing, I was amazed how well he treated opinionated and negatively motivated classmates.
The instructor does especially well in providing materials to help students succeed. He provided more tools than needed to aid students in understanding material.
run a great online course.
Teaching I know this sounds weird but I learned a lot out of this course.
great online interaction
He always made lecture videos for those who are not able to attend class live.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Good teacher, but some times may need to dumb down some examples for other students who may not understand some of the content.
He talks about the subject then gets side tracked and talks about a different subject. I understand that to make teaching better it is great to include personal experiences. I'm sorry but I really could careless for the class and that him going off subject got me irritated as a student.
I enjoy the class blog that he has us read. He seems to love class participation, which works because my class loved to participate :)
His wife is the best thing about him!
This class was ridiculous. It was almost identical to my Marketing class that I took last semester.. same topics.. just a few different assignments.
I will miss him, what a great teacher, who cares about his students..
very funny and engaging to watch.
Mr. Miller delivers with clarity and passion; is dynamic and engaging.
I think he's a great teacher.
He is a very colorful personality, never a dull moment in his class.
funny. informative. honest. makes lectures not so boring.
Mr. Miller is an AWSOME teacher, I would recommend him to my other classmates! I love how the structure of his class is.
I like his method of letting students take quizzes/tests online and not have to go to a campus site to take them; other classes online do this and I think it defeats the purpose of having the class online.
He's a great instructor and I would highly recommend him to others! He's fair all around and willing to clarify any confusion.
He is very knowledgeable.
You can tell that he loves talking and teaching business. You can tell that he really wants the students to learn (if they want to). He is interesting. I like his teaching style. Thank you!
Smart man, knows his topics. He may seem a bit gruff on the outside, yet most of us see a man willing to help his students. If the opportunity arose, I would take more of his classes.
The instructor is clear and concise about when major projects are due and is very encouraging to students about performing at their best.
Have a great summer.
The format online is very unclear and hard to follow. Having the moving pictures is very unprofessional for it being an example of a business class. Lectures and very boring, needs to be spiced up a bit and little more exciting to be able to learn anything. Seems like with the technology these days online classes can be very clear and engaging.
great class
I like that his class was well organized. Except for the test sched. I was confused at the beginning because the date next to the listed test is not the date we have to take it. It is the weekend of the date next to the test. really confusing! But if you read carefully and see WEEKEND, you will understand. He might want to format his sched a little differently though to avoid any confusion.

19. Comment on the instructor's concern for the students.
Have class lectures uploaded sooner to iTunes U if possible.
N/A
He seemed very reasonable and always made himself available so students would have access to get help.
He cares, greatly!
He just talks. Does he really care about our success.. I don't know? Hard to tell.
Thank you Mr. Miller for walking me through the nuances of downloading videos. Without your intervention, I would have been frustrated with the "fits & starts" that come with slow connections.
Listens to student concerns.
Always seemed to have a genuine interest in the success of his students.
Usually when you recieve a syllabus with how to contact the instructor they only give you there email, and class telephone number, but Rick miller gives you his skype, facebook, number, and email.
He is always responding quickly to any questions or concerns that we have.
He is definitely concerned.
He is professionally invested in the students he sees willing to put forth the effort to learn.
The instructor always provides hints and reminders as to how students can succeed or earn more points towards their grade.
He knows his work and knows what he is talking about.
always immediately responded to my e-mails
He seems like a very firm teacher. He does not show much emotion so its hard to demonstrate a concern he had for students.

23. Other comments:
N/A
He gave me a critical review of one assignment. He did not tell us how many sources to use in a four page paper. He said in the syllabus that he would fall asleep if it was five pages long.. so I did four pages.. and that was not good enough I guess. I used 3 sources with much analysis that he said was "opinion"... weird.... I was analyzing the subject and explaining why this business failed from observation and backing up with my sources explaining how businesses fail.. He does not get writing style. I really like my paper I wrote and think it is really good..don't care what he thought of it. I am dropping out of Business degree program knowing he is the head of Business careers.. that is laughable.. He is not someone to inspire new innovative ideas in business.. I just felt bored and over run with jargon. One of our test questions was "who is the new CEo of Chrysler?" I mean is that really relevant to our education?
Sitting under the tutelage of an instructor with passion for content and students makes all the difference. Thank you sir. Susan Nealy
I would definitely take another class of his.
The fact that Mr. Miller combined all of his online, sky-bridge, and regular class into one, I did not really like, because there's a reason students take an online class because they can't make it to the actually class days and times; they either have another class at that time that interferes or they work or have other things going on. It also was confusing and made things online a little more complicated and probably for those in class too, when they would have to go online and check for something, they wouldn't know if that was meant for them or those that take the online class. Like those online would watch the video of the class, but would have to wait until he posted it up on Laulima and sometimes that wouldn't be until the next day. And if he did an extra credit in class and says its for those online too that are watching, we all don't always get to watch the classes right away or if he doesn't post them up before, giving us enough time to actually try to do the extra credit. Especially if its when he says the first 3 students that send it into me before its due gets the extra credit points. So mainly the students in class well get the extra credit points (if they decide to do it), because they know about it before those that are online and have to wait until its up to watch the videos of the class.
Hope to take another class of his!

16. Which things, if any, do you think your instructor did especially well?
updated Laulima frequently so we know exactly what is expected in class.
Lectured well, explained a lot of real life scenarios to match concepts too.
teach to many learning styles and types of students
He went into detail in anything that students had questions about or didn't understand.
It shows that he cares about the students and he's a great lecturer.
His lectures of business made it fun and interesting. A motivator that encouraged students.
Mr. Miller gives lectures and makes power points very well which are very helpfull when it's time to take a test.
He lectures really well.
Dr. Miller always took the time to explain difficult terms in class to clear any confusion. His examples and stories were always on point and easy to relate with the subject.
he knew what he was teaching and all about it
Tell stories about himself and his family. Sell the Wall Street Journal to his students for 12 weeks. He said we would use a lot. Unfortunately, we only used it the paper once. It was a waste of 72 papers for me. Now, I give him credit because he said we did not need to buy it, he would give us a day in advance to go buy one, but he said it was very difficult to find.
My instructor did well on teaching us.
Explain topics well using own self experiences.
explain and gave examples on his topics, took time in class to make sure everyone wasn't confused.
funny
He is really good with providing a lively environment during class discussions.
Mr. MIller did very well on explaining anything that has to do with business and he always include personal examples which make the subject very understandable.
Shows a lot of interest in the subject and shares experiences and knowledge well.
Explain in detail, how everything he preaches ties into marketing, etc. He lives by example, great way to explain quality work.
His lectures are very informative and his past experience helps me to understand the material from a someone who has the credentials.
his explanations and lectures are precise. always on subject. and if not hes telling a good story.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
He's a great motivational speaker. He truly believes in his students and puts a lot of effort in trying to turn us into that "1%".
Smart, experienced, and funny.
very entertaining
He is a great motivator of students. Enthusiastic.
Great guy, good class
His material is out dated. These are different times and he could up date his plan.
Loved this class and him. I enjoyed his class an learned a lot.
His choice of words seem a little inappropriate at times, you can make a point without the use of 4 letter words.
very good at his job.
knows his stuff.
boring
Happy Holidays! :)
He is a good instructor and i would like to attend his class for the next couple of years if thats possible!
He is one of the best teachers I have met. I havn't met someone who had as much passion for his job since High School. When I see someone like that, I want to work as hard as I can to live a better life.
Best teacher I've had so far.

He's fair w/ grades and has given a lot of chances for the semester ads. He gives us the opportunity to speak up and challenge his test questions.
none.
wants all students to make progress and willing to answer questions over and over again.
I am neutral.
He will work with you if you have a discreprency with a question on a test.
Dr. Miller always took extra time to thoroughly explain the difference between a stock and a bond, even though he was already behind schedule. Dr. Miller also encouraged his students to use Laulima or Skype to contact him after class for more help.
they should do there reading assingments and to read his weekly journal
idk
He provides various mediums to be able to communicate with his students in their preferred ways.
He challenged students to give quality work. He pushes his students to give the best work they can.
I genuinely see that he wants us to do well in the business sector and become successful.

Mr. miller is a very valuble professor and if he ever retires it will be a great loss to society on the whole.
I wish I had Mr. Miller again for another class. :)
very good teacher. knows his stuff
hard to learn anything
Thank you for a great semester!
Richard Miller is one of the best teachers I have met so far, one other being Mr. Carletta. They both share so much passion for what they do, that it makes me want to work as hard as possible to live a similar life.
I will be looking to take his classes in the future.

This class has been very useful getting me started with microsoft office. I completely enjoyed taking this class and feel it has been more then worth it. Mr. Miller is an excellent teacher and takes the time to give information in several ways to meet all students learning styles. He is a master at reaching every student in his class and knows how to keep students involved and alert.
I was a computer dummy till I took this class. He took the time to help everyone that needed it.I learned alot.
Class was perfect
The individual help was so important through out class - it only takes a minute to be helped back on track - and this vast new horizon is still overwhelming at times. The projects are great learning tools. The lab help so vital, along with the space to work quietly among others. I'm inspired to keep learning, thanks.
good instructor . i tell other students to take his class.

18. Which things, if any, do you think your instructor did especially well?
Communicating with students. Always stays in touch.
Due to the class being online, the instructor had the weekly discussions posted on time on a consistent day which was very helpful.
Richard Miller had an efficient set up for his class.
Mr. Richard Miller goes out of his way to be friendly, helpful, and seems to be interested in individual attention where it is requested or needed. It is a real honor to learn from him.
VERY organized for an online course. It was easy for me to get around the site(laulima) and find what I was looking for.
I thought he explained the coursework well. He gave every opportunity for a student to be successful.
Nothing really he does not make any assignments for you to know if you are doing the correctly. He only have reading, videos, powerpoints, and volunteer in a non profit organization to be part of the grade. What I dont get is when doing a marketing plan you need to figure out how to make it on your own. I would like to do assignments and turn in some work and know where I need to improve. Honestly I still dont understand how a marketing plan should be put together. I did my marketing plan but did not get any feed back on what was wrong or how I can improve it. I am just hoping I pass this class just for the fact I dont want to redo it again.

20. Comment on the instructor's concern for the students.
Shows he is very concern for his students. Always sends reminders which I think is great. Sometimes students need encouragement and he provides it.
I had a few problems come up during the semester, and when I initiated asking Richard Miller for help, I really felt unheard by him. I have been attending UHMC for a few years now and have completed only good reviews for my teachers, however this was the first class I had (on, or off line) where I felt patronized when asking for assistance. I felt really upset after a few attempts of connecting with Richard Miller, and eventually gave up asking for help. :/
As for the others; I have no way of knowing. As for myself; I'm impressed. The general attitude shows in everything he says and does. He's a great teacher.
None.
He answered questions that were posed to him.
There was no concern he could email to check how the student are doing and if there are any snags that he can help with. I feel as an instructor he should atlease check on his students and keep an open communication through email. At the lease He should reach out to his students not wait for the student to reach out to him. I wish he cared enough about it..
21. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
Great.
Richard Miller comes off as knowledgeable about the subject matter he is teaching. However, from my experience, he also came off as unconcerned about assisting with technical help. His class load was fair as well as his grading system. The content of the class was interesting and well put together. I liked the class despite feelings of frustration when reaching out for help.
Mr. Miller is one of the great assets of this college.
I have taken about 3 of Mr. Miller's classes and passed all of them. He is a GREAT teacher. I always enjoy taking his classes.
I would recommend this course and I would take other courses taught by Mr. Miller.
Our semester project was due at the end of October and to this date, I still have not heard anything back from Mr. Miller about it. When, or should I say, how long will it take for Mr. Miller to respond and let me know how I did on my project?
Good instructor
Never had contact with him other then asking him where I could do my volunteer other then that silent through out the semester.

If there were such a thing: Mr. Miller deserves a reward for his outstanding expertise and professional contributions to all of us.
None.
Thank you for a good semester. This class definitely helped me with my business. I esp. appreciated the Marketing plan assignment.
If he teaches next semester I would really recomend that he makes it a point to communicate with his students. I know he teaches a live class but even though he should put more time and effort in his online class..

16. Which things, if any, do you think your instructor did especially well?
He knew what he was talking about and had good life experiences to help explain the subjects.
He creates a fun, interesting learning atmosphere in the class, and by posting each session of the class in laulima helps the students to make up for the classes that they can't attend. He is a great teacher, and I really enjoyed his class.
He knows a lot about business and explains some aspects well.
Talk, a lot.
Great communication when help is needed
Makes all info. available at all times.
Talking about marketing.
teach
favoritism thats what rick miller is and he doesn't have no sense of understanding at all and he put down people if they do something wrong in front of all his students which iI think is not right.
The class assignments were very fair and not over-whelming.
he is able to talk thru the entire hour and fifteem mintues given
I give Mr. Miller a lot of credit for being so patient with his students.
Mr. Miller has personal experience in business, not just academic knowledge, and enlivens the course with interesting anecdotes that illustrate key points. The textbook he selected is vary good and that, plus his lectures, covers a very broad subject while still giving useful detail. Because of the way this course is taught, I feel that I'm very likely to remember the material and use it.
gave loads of info, sometimes more than needed. very informational.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Please stick to the subject a little more. I agree that some of the course material is hard to swallow. I also know it is well known if there is some sence of personalized relationship between the learner and the teacher, the learner will more likely comprehend and retain the subject matter, especially if it is complex, a bit more than if there was no such relationship. But, jeeze man you are exceeding the boundary of what is appropriate much of the time. We pay good money to learn the course material. Keep this in mind please. Students should not be mocked when attempting to keep you on course, this behavior is inappropriate in any capacity.
He knows a lot about the business industry.
He is a very outgoing teacher that seems overly excited when teaching a class. He is easy to talk to and very friendly
He isn't very linear. He goes off on rants thru the entire class, and starts each class out by complaining about his last day or so. Not information I think is relivent to this course.
Mr. Miller seems to think that entrepreneurs are the cream of humanity and everyone else is just a "worker bee" [his words]. He also believes that this course, or perhaps the business curriculum in general, is the only one that gives students really useful information. He seems to have something against 16th century history in particular. Though Mr. Miller has an excellent way of presenting the material and keeping the class interesting, and the subject matter is fascinating, I'm coming away from the course with the feeling that I might not fit in a world of businessmen if this is their way of thinking. I would also caution anyone emailing Mr. Miller directly that what you say may be brought up in class in possibly embarrassing fashion, as an example of what not to do. He never mentions names, but it still must be a bit humiliating to sit in class as you private argument with the professor becomes public. It is often instructive to hear these things, but I feel bad for the person he is referring to. Also, I think there is far too much time in class spent discussing how some students don't read the requirements. Those of us who don't cut class and do read the syllabus have to sit through long re-explanations of things that are already absolutely clear in the on-line class requirements. It doesn't benefit people who don't listen to the lectures, who are the very people targeted by the comments. The rest of us are just missing out on course material that could be covered.
when he talks he babbles alot.....and loses me alot.

He want us to do well.
He needs to be more patient with people. He can be rude to students.
I saw no evidence of this. I believe he has none.
He should know that at times things go wrong, and thats when he should judge individually.
very concerned
He has no concern for students.
I enjoyed taking this class with Richard Miller.
It is very clear that Mr. Miller tries to give everyone a fair, maybe more than fair, chance to do well in his course. He responds well to questions and tries to involve the class in the material. He seems to genuinely want everyone in the class to do well.

23. Other comments:
It's no easy task being the instructor of this course. I appreciate you are so willing to share your time with the school, and all students who enroll in this course. Just work on staying with the task at hand, your knowledge on the subject is invaluable and people want to hear it shared by you.
I believe requesting the Semester project to be turned in before even the half way mark is asking the students to report and/or create project with very little to no knowledge on what is required. Yes we are give a few options, but the options aren't always truly an option. If you are going to school, working and is a single mom, I don't have time to do service learning or to truly get out and try to sell adds for the scedule of classes, which at every turn I hear they are slowly being fazed out, even with Mr. Miller saying they are not. Another thing, during the begining of the class Mr. Miller told us that he advises us to get a sub scription to the wall street journal. He continually stated that we would reference this paper severl times during the course. As on right now we have literally looked at the paper once for 5 min. It wasn't a terribly expensive sub scription but it is a waste of paper, I have 15 weeks of papers pileing up that were never touched. He made this seem to be an important tool for us to use during this class. I understand he is trying to get us interested in reading the Wall Street Journal, but we opened the paper once.
To help students get used to the method of taking tests on Laulima, Mr. Miller posts a no-grade practice test. This is excellent, but right now the questions are just throw-away things. I would suggest changing this test to be all about the course requirements, like When is the semester project due? Do I have to write a paper if I sell ads? How many points is each quiz worth. If I get quiz scores of 88, 67, 98 and 79, what is my total score? This might get rid of the need to cover questions like this in class several times over the semester. Overall I'd have to say this is an excellent course and Mr. Miller is an excellent teacher. I would recommend this course to anyone with even a passing interest in business.

Thanks for all your help. It's been a great semester and I wish it could have lasted a bit longer. I have learned a lot and feel that I am ready to move foward. Have a great summer!!! ALOHA PUA!!!
Mr. Miller is just a great teacher I enjoy the way he teaches his class and how is helpful in helping us students.
He don't like to spend much time on one on with his students who need the extra help, refers them to the lab.This is ok guys in there seem to not mind the constant questioning.Other than that he is a pleasant fellow.
i like Mr. Millers teaching he is very helpful
Mr. Miller is very knowledgable. He explains the material in easy to understand terms. The development of the student is important to him. He encourages the student to persevere and stay with the class, even though they may be encountering academic difficulties. Encourages tutoring. Excellent instructor. Highly recommend.

As clear as the text, Richard Miller plays the role of a silent study.
He's a great teacher!
Hope to have more classes with Mr. Miller!!

16. Which things, if any, do you think your instructor did especially well?
he is a good teacher that knows alot about business..i would take him again.
He is no doubt an expert with laulima!
Richard Miller went over the main points of each chapter.
He made sure we had multiple ways of learning the information and wanted us all to do well.
Richard Miller does an excellent job relating personal experiences to his teaching. This, not only keeps it interesting, but helps me retain the important info he is trying to get across.
Nothing
lecture was great. very clear in his dicussions. learned a great deal about business.
Giving examples in class.
Lectures were very entertaining, especially when the topics are related to real life events.
explains the course very well
on explaning when the tests is going to happen
Mr. Miller is one of the best lecturers I have ever had. His classes are entertaining and informative. I absolutely loved his class!!!
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
i feel that Professor Miller talks about his personal life way to much and not enough about the current chapters in the course. I do know that he is a metaphoric person relating personal experiences back to our subjects but then he can get carried away.
Some of his stories are too long. If those stories were a little shorter I would not loss interest in what he is explaining.
Great job! Work on upgrading your social/digital media classes
I don't like this instructor at all. He only gives boring lectures and he loves to yell.
your are very enjoyable to be around. really had a great time in your class.
Happy teacher and very smart person.
Hope you get better Mr. Miller! >. <
he doesnt explains things clearly
hard to understand from time to time nothing to bad
nothing
Regardless of how I felt, I never missed his class. Hands down, best class I've taken so far in college. Thanks Mr. Miller!!!

19. Comment on the instructor's concern for the students.
He cares for his Students, but i feel that his power points in class and the power points online need to match when things are different on the power points in his classroom then they are online i feel confused.
He listens to his students and explains to them until they can understand what he is trying to say.
He was always willing to help people with questions about business in their own lives.
He is condescending and easily irritable by students and like to make fun of them in front of the class. He acts like he is so much more superior than the students.

He's a fantastic professor who treats his studently fairly. It's nice to finally see a professor at Maui College not 'baby' their students.

need to stay on topic more
I hope to have him again in future classes! For the future students, take his class!! Even if you don't decide to major in business, it's incredibly useful. He may seem a bit hard on the edges but he kept us laughing the entire semester.

I enjoyed this class and learned alot. mr.miller has a great sence of humor and is very helpful.
I FEEL THAT MR. MILLER IS AN AWSOME TEACHER AND I WOULD TAKE HIS CLASS OVER AGAIN WHICH I AM.
This was a good class to start learning the basic of Word and PowerPoint, however, I think students would benefit greatly if it was the class was more than 2 credits long and included Excel and Access.
He is alot of fun and takes pride in teaching his students

I plan to pursue step by step in this exciting adventure, thank you Mr Miller computer lab techs,and all staff help aloha much!

16. Which things, if any, do you think your instructor did especially well?
Before he gave any tests, he made sure he explained the Chapter containing the material on the tests. I also think he did a good job on explaining the material and keeping me interested in this subject. I also thought he was very fair teacher..
He did an awesome job of dealing with the distance learning students.
Incorporating examples to subject matter.
I think he's a very fair teacher. He was very understanding of student's concerns, even when some people didn't really deserve it. He has a lot of great knowledge about the subject of business. I've learned so much over this semester.
His lectures and he's a good teacher.
He made learning fun
he was very fair with us if he didn't cover the topic in time he wouldn't give us the test until it was covered and he cared if we didn't understand something
i think mr miller explained chapter content well!
Mr. Miller is a wonderful teacher to teach Busines.. He is an amazing and an encoraging teacher that helps you in every way that he can.
Update his assignments every week with organization! well done! :)
He did well in giving examples of what he was talking about that way I would have a better understanding of it.
He was a great teacher he knows his stuff and I really got a lot of useful information. I feel all my teachers were awesome teachers it's myself that I have to question. It's because I have the choice to pay attention or not. The only problem I would say is to much information I'm only human and I know I can only remember so much stuff so im afraid I I want to take this class again so I would be able to get the information I didn't get. So not his problem it's mine.
He did a wonderful job responding to many of my e-mails, and clearly stating when there'll be an exam. It's sad he won't do any online classes anymore, because I loved having to do classes online. I'm just glad I took his class right away when I had the chance =)
Mr. Miller is very organized and is an awesome teacher!!
I enjoyed his guest speakers. His knowledge on the subject is impressive. I liked the use of the many forms of technology during the course.
mr.miller is well organized, i took his internet class (which was my first internet class), and now since i took it im making sure to take more internet classes for the rest of my college career. Im just hoping that the rest of my internet classed will be just as useful.
I think Mr. Miller's instruction was great, he knows his material.
Being that he is a combined class--sky bridge, internet, and reg. class---Richard Miller does an outstanding job providing education for those of us who are not able to sit in at the times he is lecturing. I live that his classes are video taped and that we are able to watch them at our own time. There should be more classes like this available.
class session, student dicussion,
The passion for the material being adressed is evident in Mr. Miller's teaching. His love for business inspired me to learn and grasp all that he had to offer. My only regret is that I could not physically attend the lectures. He is a store-house of knowledge and genuinely desires for each of us to learn business.
interesting explanation of each chapter lessons
I like the fact that he let us know ahead of time if an assignment or something has changed or cancelled. If we don't cover the chapters together in time for our test he will postpone our test.
Despite what most students complain about, Mr. Miller thoroughly explains his expectations, the assignments, due dates, and test dates in many areas which are easy for students to see. Those who disagree are students who don't even try.
Mr. Miller gave real life examples in his lectues.
Knowing his subject.
I think Mr. Miller really showed genuine interest in the progress of students. He would go back on the subject we were talking about if we didn't understand it. He made sure we would learn something out of his lectures, videos, blogs, ppt, and audio. He has been caring and understanding to all his students and never left a person behind. His main objective is to make sure we learn what he teaches. Great job!
Mr. Miller helped me understand that there are so many ways to communicate with the outside world. This is such a plus especially if you have a growing business. Thank you Mr. Miller for your help. I really enjoy you style of teaching and your methods. Mahalo, Daniella
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I think he does a good job at teaching, and even though there were some misunderstanding and arguements broadcasted online, i don't think he should stop teaching skybridge...
I hope he continues to be the amazing teacher he is and doesn't let the criticism from the Moloka'i students affect his options for teaching future distance education courses.
Less time on Laulima. Require Laulima comprehension testing as a pre-requisite prior to enrollment.
I know he says he gets this a lot, but he spent a little but too much time explaining Laulima. It feels like some students don't make any effort to get familiar with what is online, and they use up a lot of class time asking questions that have been clearly explained on laulima. It would be nice if Professor Miller would be a little bit tougher with these students, so that everyone else can move on with the material.
The test should have multiple questions, but its okay overall the class was interesting.
Full of win and awesome.
he is funny ,especially when he wears leisure pants !
nOthing mUch! keep uP tHe gOod wORk!
He is a great teacher! :)
He is awesome.
after viewing these student surveys, I would hope Mr. Miller would continue in providing online courses and skybridge classes=)..hes doing a GREAT job teaching!!
A likeable guy.
I would just like to add that mr.miller did a great job having teach internet students, regular in class students, and students from other places. I can't imagine how difficult it must be to teach all these students, but he did a terrific job doing so.
Richard Miller is great at getting his point across in a way that is understandable. He is always willing to help his students out when needed.
more student inter-actions... group projects....
I wish I would be able to take more business classes from Mr. Miller, but I am needing more upper level courses. He is a wonderful teacher!!
Very good teacher and clearly explains what students need to get a good grade in his class. He should teach this class next semester. I encourage students to take this BUS 120 next sem.
I think that he is a wonderful teacher and should continue teaching sky bridge regardless of what anyone says. There will always be someone who will try to wine their way through school.
I highly respect Mr. Miller and look forward to learning from him again.
I really liked the option of watching the BUS 120 class through laulima. This helped me to understand the lectures better than just an on-line class. I also liked taking the tests on laulima because you had 2 full days to take it. We all have busy schedules these days and with these open testing days it gave me plenty of time to take them.
The thing I didn't like about watching the class is that one minute I couldn't hear him, and the next minute it sounded like he was yelling. I didn't even change the volume, but it sounded like I did. I also didn't like that I could hear him gulping when he drank water, it was like nails on a chalkboard for me, it just made me cringe. I also didn't like when he or other students would go off subject because it would just waste time. For example that little feud between him and Molokai students, I'm glad another student asked him to proceed with the class.
He is very smart and understanding. He is a very enthused teacher and never lets his guard down. He is fair and offers his help unconditionally.
He's Awesome!!!!

19. Comment on the instructor's concern for the students.
He truly cares for his students and lo ves to see his students succeed.
He holds a high level of concern for each of his students, even if they are a pain to deal with.
He's a very fair teacher. I'm pretty happy with this class. I think he might want to tread a little bit more carefully when sharing his opinions- especially his political opinions. He made a comment early in the semester that was critical of the Hawaiian Studies program and it really offended one of my fellow classmates.
N/A
Moderate, and acceptable.
i think he did well, especially responding to students stupid questions
When I had an issue in the class, I felt that Mr. Miller was irritated with my question and so did the other student in class. Instead of helping to find a solution, he chose to have a tantrum. It got so outrageous that I had to go to our site coordinator with the treatening e-mails that I received from Mr. Miller. (He also sent an e-mail to the entire class) Our laulima page is filled with information and websites. One being the discussion board where many students made comments after receiving that e-mail without even knowing what really was going on. After this incident, I am afraid that I'll be graded unfairly.
nOnE!
He makes sure that the students in the outer cites are able to get work and test done without any difficulties.
If you look at his laulima page all of that on there is to help the student I think he Help me out a lot just by having that.
I could see his concern for students that did not understand Laulima and certain aspects of the social media encouraged to be used.
He always listened to what everyone had to say and came up with a fair answer.
somewhat.....
Mr. Miller is always willing to help students! Unfortunately, many students seem to take advantage of online courses or do not understand the time needed for them. I think the students lack of respect has made it difficult to move through the material quickly. Mr. Miller always took the time needed to help everyone out!
Easy to communicate with.
if there is a bunch of people who don't understand or misread his notes he will be sure to clarify it with everyone.
He is generally concerned for the students progress in his class.
He's very concerned. I would recommend others to either take his online, skybridge, or in class classes. Like I said, he wants everyone to be able to leave his class in learning the basic part of the business concepts.
he always answered any questions on a timely manner.

Thanx Mr. Miller for teaching this awesome course this semester!
I'm sad to hear he is not planning to continue with the skybridge classes in the future. I know it's extra work for him, but it's been such a wonderful option. It's been nice not having to drive all the way to Kahului for class. It has saved me a lot of time and money (on gas). There were times when I had to miss a class, so the option of watching the lecture online later in the evening has been a life saver.
The best, hands down.
I don't think that I'll be taking another class with Mr. Miller. As a distant learner, Mr. Miller doesn't seem to understand that we're in class grabbing as much information as possible, because that's all we can do. All the while it seems like he's only having discussions with the Kahului class. When the projectors go off in the skybridge room, class is over for us. We cannot and don't have the luxury of asking anymore questions and going over to his office to discuss class. Another issue that we have had all semester is that we constantly neeed to remind the students in Kahului to use the mike so that we could hear them and the be a part of the class discussions. It started out not so bad (the mikes) too very bad. I feel like I didn't get what I could have gotten out of this class had our instructor been more sensitive to the distant learners.

His lecture power point presentations did not match the power point presentations we were required to print. It should be updated.
I hope you continue with your offering of classes Mr. Miller
I need more writing courses for better preparations for this class....
While I understand some students do not read all the material posted, it is frustrating for those of us who do have a desire to learn. I am extremely grateful that I was able to particiapte in your class this semester. Because you teach online, I was able to gain insight and knowledge from a wise businessman. I hope that others from neighboring islands will be afforded this opportunity as well. Students who lack the disciple to complete assignments and read deadlines will hopefully learn to appreciate a good teacher. Thank you Mr. Miller for a great semester! You're passion for what you teach is why I love business. You make the material relevant, you are understanding, and you have helped me learn. I hope you will continue to teach online courses!
I would just like to thank Mr. Miller for a wonderful semester and hope he continues in teaching.
Although Mr.Miller knew his subject, I found it hard to learn because I had no interest in watching the lectures. I did watch them, it was just too boring for me, but what lecture isn't boring, especially when you have to watch it and can't be there to interact with the class.
I hope you continue to have online classes. It has been a pleasure being in your class this semester. I'd like to continue on with other business classes with you if possible. Thanks for giving me a better outlook in the business field.

Rick Miller is a excellent teacher. He makes his teaching fun and wants you to understand the computer.
he is to slow
This has been a good class for me to try and catch up on computer proficiency. The 2 credits made it a slower pace which has been helpfull
I really learned a lot thank you
A great instructor
Mr. Miller is a great instructor, he has been very patient with me individually as well with the entire class. He always, well most of the time had a smile on his face. I have learned alot from Mr. Miller and hope to have another class with him in the future.

18. Which things, if any, do you think your instructor did especially well?
Everything is well laid out
he incorporates the use of different social networking medias that are very interesting and interacting!!
Teaching an online class can be difficult with the lack of face to face contact with students but I enjoyed that Rick Miller had an abundance of information available to us on Laulima. With links to videos, audio files, and PowerPoints that we could download and view at our convenience. I really enjoyed everything.
My instructor did well at making this class into a self interest class. It really seems like he wanted the students to take initiative on their own and participate. He wanted us to gather information and share it as with the MCC blog and other forms of technology such as twitter and facebook. This way we develop our interest and liking for the class on our own.
I've been out of school for 8 years and Mr. Miller and is MKT 120 online class really helped me get back into the swing of things. He posted weekly powerpoints, videos and material needed to succeed.
Put a lot of material together on Laulima in an easy to read and organized manner.
He teaches very well. He knows what he's talking about and explains himself very clearly so his students can understand.
Although this was an online class with no classroom instructions, Mr. Miller provided the students with many ways to ask questions and communicate not only with the instructor, but with their peers. Any questions asked were answered in a very timely manner.

20. Comment on the instructor's concern for the students.
Gives us updates and communicates back an forth answering questions promptly
In our weekly posts he kept us updated with not only the information that we would be covering for the week but updates about how the class is doing as a whole on tests reminders of assignments due and just little tidbits to keep things interesting. He was also very prompt in returning emails as I had questions to ask.
I know he wants to see everyone succeed and move forward through this business program. He might make comments where we are lacking and show what we can do to improve.
Very concerned about his students. Always answered a question when asked and never gave up on any of his students.
Promptly answered all questions that students asked and did what he could to help the students succeed.
21. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
Great instructor.
A+
GREAT teacher!! Mr. Miller is very easy going. yet, he knows how to explain things CLEARLY!!
a wonderful teacher whom I would recommend to others as well as take other classes from.
I remember having his BUS 120 class and I remember how knowledgeable he is. He is definitely a smart man who I think anyone can look up to and get very good advice. Since this is an online class it is very hard to get that direct personality that you can feel from a lecture class. He is a great teacher and if anyone is willing to learn about business and marketing they will should definitely take it from Rick Miller. Any question they ask him, I'm sure they can find a great answer.
Very good. I think all instructors should see his Laulima page and take a few tips.
Needs to review some info on laulima more closely for inconsistencies and should consider allowing one retake exam. Over all he is a good teacher who cares about students. 4/5 star teacher
A+++
Mr. Miller is a great instructor that lays everything on the table from Day 1. He immediately informed students that online classes is not for everyone. I really enjoyed this class.
Because I am also taking Mr. Miller's BUS 120 class I can connect with this MKT 120 class better. I wish this class also had lectures on laulima. Taking an on-line class can be challenging and to actually see a teacher during lectures can help.

26. Other comments:
Personally I feel it was hard to answer a lot of these questions because it was an online class. A lot of these questions should be changed to better reflect this type of online class. This way there can be a better reflection of the teacher. Since I have had Rick Miller in some past classes I can kind of take this survey from what I know of him but I feel it is not exactly fair.
Would consider taking another class from him. Seems reasonable, is prompt to reply to messages, and knows what he is doing.
Keep up the good job! Someday I hope my daughter has the chance to have you as an instructor in her business career. Mahalo...
I love the way you utilized Laulima for the students. I don't care what other students say, don't change a thing.

16. Which things, if any, do you think your instructor did especially well?
Mr. Miller is such a wonderful asset for this school to have. Not only is he a cool guy, but also he has a wealth of knowledge about all sorts of business situations. Any student who takes one of his classes is lucky. Mr. Miller explains information from the textbook well and makes learning so much easier by supplementing the text with his own personal business experiences and stories.
Making class interesting and adding in his own experiences has helped me better understand the concept. By tying in his own experiences with the topic we are discussing, we all get the sense of "real life situation", because it had already been done.
Maintaining contact with me and encouraging me to finish this class and do it well. The instructor is a great mentor.
He applies what we are learning with real life situations everyone can relate to which really helps to retain the information.
Mr. Miller makes great impressions in his lectures. He has a talent of portraying his subjects that cause you to think about what is said long after class is over.
helped us understand important concept every well.
He is very enthusiastic teacher and has good stories regarding the subject matter.
He has a passion for teaching.
Mr. Miller was very good at making points clear. He used his experience to help back up his facts.
the presentations
Everything
Very good with communication and explaining what is to be expected and learned.
Explaining the lectures and material
He made showing up to BUS 120 an enjoyable time. I loved the business related stories, and Miller case scenarios.
I especially enjoyed how Mr. Miller incorporated his life's journey as a business man in this business world and how to be successful by example.

23. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Great class to take! It provides the basis of all information a student will need when considering becoming a business major.
If i were to give this class a letter grade it would be an A+
I would recommend this class to all even if they are not majoring in business. It is an awesome learning experience for everyone.
Great class for anyone wanting to learn business.
Over all, Mr. Miller is a credit to the Universary and it's staff.
I would recomend this course to everyone interested in business
I have learned a lot in this class. It has helped me to decide if this is something I want to persue
Too much material for only 4 tests.
I really got a understanding of business principles, for someone who had no idea what business even was besides the basics I learned a lot but couldve learned alot more.
it is and incredible program that test's the mind and patience of thee individual,the growing process comes from the student whos willing to go thee extra mile that student will be truly bless by his labor and efforts
Very Good
I learned so much from this class and I would like to syudy with Mr. Miller again. I would reccomend this class and instructor, to my friends.
This a very good class that i would definately refer to my friends and family.
great intro to business, don't expect the paper, back but he still lets you know what he thought of it on lau lima. Class is very informal, but enjoyable to show up to and listen to, one of the few i have taken and enjoyed showing up to in my years at school
My overall evaluation of this course is that for the Small Business Owner, Entrepreneur it is an excellent course. It provided the basic aspects of Owning a business, managing a business, everything that it takes to own or operate a successful business. Not that it is going to guarantee that your business will succeed but give you the basics on how to establish such business or run such business.
