17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
very knowledgeable in the subject area. she was also always available when i had any questions on the course and did not hestiate to explain concepts that I had difficulty understanding.
She is always willing to help.
Very friendly, and east to approach outside of class for help. As well, she always responded quickly to any questions online.
She did her best to faciltate our learning in spite of technological problems and she is approachable and encouraging as a teacher. She inspires me to be and do better.
Although I was on a different island, she was more than willing to help me out in any way possible. I could call her and she always answered.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
because the course is online I think one of the toughest things would be to figure out how to keep a student like me engaged in the being consistent with the course throughout the semester. In the beginning I didnt focus much and needed to catch up to do the the 1st mixed review. I was engaged in the middle of the semester because the next mixed review and test was coming up, then at the ending of the semster after the last mixed review I started to put the course to the side again. I know it isn't the instructor's fault for this, it's clearly a student issue but just some food for thought
This would be a great class to have in school. More hands on experience will be helpful.
Make an on-campus class available once a month to discuss trouble areas.
Fix the technological stuff and all is good to go!
nothing. great teacher. great class!:)
