17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
She is always willing to help.
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.
Very friendly, and east to approach outside of class for help. As well, she always responded quickly to any questions online.
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.
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.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
This would be a great class to have in school. More hands on experience will be helpful.
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
Make an on-campus class available once a month to discuss trouble areas.
nothing. great teacher. great class!:)
Fix the technological stuff and all is good to go!
