Thank you for all your help with Bus 101. Your quick and attentive responses were great. I want you to teach other classes outside of your curriculum of classes. Your the best!
Great Instructor
Awesome course. I like the fact that I can work ahead. Hope that all online course will do that for students who like to work ahead and not wait until certain day to start. Bravo Zulu Mr. B!!!

6. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Learning about the hardware of the computer.
The only problem I had with this course was the fact that it uses Internet Explorer at a web browser. It tends to have a lot of connection issues. Once MyITLab is available on other browsers, this class will be perfect.
Being my first time back to school in 14 years let alone take an online course, I thought it was going be tough, but Prof. Beadel, was great with communication and understanding :). I would recommend other online courses as well as Prof. Beadel. I am looking forward to taking more online courses.
I had to upload a lot of system requirements to be able to do the work online.
Having to read all of the material.
n/a
It was a challenge for me becuse I never had to use any of these programs in my work experience
The only thing I would change was the waiting for assignments to be open. When I'm in a learning mode I could sit for hours working on projects. I just would have to wait to do the assignments when they were available.
7. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Its great that everything is on line.
The course schedule, assignment instructions, and textbook were clear and easy to follow. I learned a lot on my own time, at my convenience, which was important to me.
What I liked most about it was that I had the whole week to work on my assignments and that it was due on Sundays.
To do the homework as much as you want so you can practice and be able to do the work independently.
Convenience
The way that Professor Beadel distributed the course work made if very easy to keep on track and not feel overwhelmed by the weekly course work. The program was easy to learn and easy to use.
Professor Beau was very helpful and always available to help.
I loved that I could continue on to the next projected assignment. I enjoyed moving ahead and I didn't feel rushed because I was always ahead. I could see what I needed to do and when I needed to do them. This was my favorite class out of my four classes this semester.

22. Other comments:
I did not take this course online. I was afraid of computers and had limited knowledge before taking this course. Professor Beadel was an excellent instructor and I would recommend him to everyone interested in learning about computers. I cannot express how much I appreciate Professor Beadel and I am looking forward to my future classes with him. His enthusiasm for the world of computing is contagious but more than that he gave me the confidence I needed to interact with my home computer and experiment with the different programs. I am so grateful.
Mahalo Mr. B for responding promptly to my emails when I had computer problems in the beginning of this class. I learned a lot and appreciate it, very much! Have a great summer!
Aside from my own lack of organizational skills, I enjoyed this course. I learned a lot of new skills that will be helpful in the future.
Professor Bau was great to let me sit in his class as my=uch as I could to get the extra help that I needed.
Awesome class. I would take it again if I could because I learned a lot and had fun doing it. It met me at my level and my pace.

5. What did you like least about your online course experience?
The VLOE Assignments, in general. Its a little troublesome to worry about that when there are the tests and discussions that need to be addressed as well.
I think online classes are the best thing that has happened for people who work and/or have children and cannot be in class physically.
Nothing. This was a good class.
Would have enjoyed the class more in person.
had a lot of work
I didn't dislike anything. My online course experience was great.
I like working online. There is nothing negative about it.
Future students should be very careful how they ask questions via e-mail. Right from the start of the semester I felt the professor responded to questions in a defensive manner. The responses were as if he felt attacked by a simple question. He would threaten repremand in his e-mail response to a question. This was very disenheartening and left me feeling very upset about the course. I hung in there and finished the course (A- grade), dispite the tone of hostility that came from the instructor.
There was so much homework. I had a hard time understanding what he wanted from me sometimes.
Nothing. I felt that Prof. Beadel was clear and concise about what was expected of me.
nothing.
Too many research for homework. I hate discussions
6. What did you like most about your online course experience?
That the professor response to the discussion is timely and quick. And that the instructor responses timely and sends emails to help students as much as possible.
less stressful challenges your critical thinking your actual grade reflects what you actually put into the work
The VLOE videos.
Stuck to the syllabus and the course material was easy to follow.
the convenience of the course being offered online
I liked how on the website we used, there were videos we could watch during the VLOE assignments. It made the work more interesting and easier to understand.
Working online is highly recommended. I like how we can do our assignments at our own pace.
This course exposes a student to aspects of the law not found in any other course offered at LCC. It was fascinating to go over areas of law and learn more in depth about the court systems. The on-line research was extensive and the writing was also somewhat intensive. The discussion posting were great for interacting with students and the instructor in a positive manner.
I could get help when needed.
I enjoyed learning about different aspects of law and using the abacuslaw program. It was good to work with a program that is used in the real work field.
being able to really look for information to boost up my memorandum of law paper. this course really made you feel like you were part of the judicial system. this course really requires a lot of researching and digging into the topic of the week, but in the end you case would easier to fight for and you would a little taste of what paralegals do. it ain't easy.a lot of vocabulary you have to remember and steps/protocols to take.
Taking on-line course is convenient for me

Professor Beadel did an excellent job. Professional, efficient, clear, and easy to communicate with via email. Excellent communicator.
I really liked the weekly instructions. It made it easier to complete the assignments.
Great Job Beau Beadel!
The website used in this course is a bit confusing when the course begins. The instructor could provide a little more information about how to use this site.
Mr. Beadel is ok, too many research for homework every week. He gives us a time off sometimes, It gets old doing research every week for homework. Doing discussions, post-test, and VLOE's every week. Be prepared for a lot of research in this class.
